The negativity of photography …

I have been experimenting with scanning old negatives on my flatbed scanner. I don’t have a proper negative scanner just an old garden variety Canon printer/scanner. I scanned the negatives on the flat bed, using an iPad as a light source. Imported the badly scanned image into Photoshop (finally found a reason to use it again) and inverted the file. From this point onwards I followed my usual editing habits. The results? Scratchy, fuzzy and grainy images. I think I’ll keep experimenting with this method. What do you think?
