Looking for help with optimizing my scans/photoshop
I'd like to learn more about getting the most out of my scanned film (e-6 mostly, some b+w and c41 as well) in the scanning stage and in photoshop. All of my b+w work is done in the darkroom. I process color film too but output is via lightjet.
I'm interested in proper photoshop dodge/burn techniques, blending 2 scans, working with layers, color correction, ie only things that apply to making fine art prints. While I get by with the knowledge I have, I know I can make better prints. I own/operate a drum scanner and I'm mostly self-taught with photoshop. I'd like to get some hands on instruction locally on an individual or group basis. I could take a class at the local community college but I'm afraid most of what their teaching won't apply to someone who shoots LF film and makes lightjet prints. I'm currently in los angeles but will be relocating to west michigan in a few months.
