New York-based Merri Cyr has been photographing artists and rock musicians for almost 30 years. When she came to us needing a perfect scan for a 20 year-old color negative, she knew it was going to be a tough request given the crazy stage lighting of the time and the age of the negative. It was a challenge, but we were ultimately able to achieve a good balance between the strong yellow cast and the other color tones.

Congratulations to Merri Cyr for making the cover of Rolling Stone Australia!

If you’re making your own scans, calibrate and scan with no adjustments, and save as a 48bit RGB tiff. DO NOT use automated adjustments in the scanner software.

Here is our guide for custom color negative conversion.
