I’m spending more time with my parents lately as they are getting older. One of the activities that we all enjoy together is looking through the family photos. Last week I had a look through some photos from the late 50s and 60s. I set my little finepix digital camera to the macro setting (the one for taking close-ups of flowers or insects) and photographed the originals. Once home I did a bit of post-processing on i photo, cropping to a good size, sharpening and increasing contrast. Now the photos are on my computer I can reproduce and share them easily. Over the coming months I’m going to do the same with some photos of my parents’ families going way back. This will be a great way to spend time with my parents and find out about all the relatives whose photos live in the biscuit tin.
