    The art of scanning

    Well, I've been developing my own C41 film and it's been going well. The colors aren't bad at all etc. Fairly happy,
    but I do tend to over expose my images intentionally for a pastel look with my film and when scanning I don't know
    if it's coming out proper.

    Can anyone offer any advice, it seems like scanning is a serious art form and I had not even known. I'm jealous of
    the big companies that have profiles at their disposal. Currently using an Epson v600 and have played with SilverFast
    software but only briefly.

    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    And then if anyone has advice on getting my monitor calibrated and what to use that'd be helpful as well, trying to
    send a couple of test prints out soon and want to see how accurate I am. That's also a big headache and nightmare...

    Scanning is an art form, but not one that is covered very well here on APUG. Try asking your question at our sister site, DPUG.
