Thanks! I just wish I knew more about scanning film negatives. Not knowing enough I just experiment until I come up with something I like, but then I have no idea what actually was on the negative. And Ektar is nearly impossible (for me) to get right when scanning. Actually, quite frustrating.
I'm in the same boat! I find keeping detailed notes on what choices I've made in scanning has helped me to become more consistent. Once you achieve precision, it becomes easier to adjust to get what you want. the fun for me is in the journey, not the destination.
