Happy Birthday Kei-chan!





Happy 25th birthday to a very special man! Here's hoping the year ahead brings him as much joy as he bring us!

And so to celebrate I've scanned 25 photos with the theme of Koyama & friends!

He shouldn't exist in isolation.








All photos in a zip file - 9.4Mb - MF

My scanner is just a little Canon flatbed scanner. When my old one died a couple of years ago I wanted a real scanner, not a multi-function, and there aren't a lot to choose from. But it works pretty well.

However the scanner is only the first part of the process. I spend a fair bit of time then working on the scans after I do them - to clear up marks and scratches, to smooth out the tone, to make them lighter and cleaner etc. The clone stamp is my very good friend as well.

And some of those shop photos aren't the best quality to begin with. Some of them are so dark that even a normal person would think twice before putting them in an album, let alone selling them. Then again, we buy them, so who's the fool there?

And it's really not a chore to spend such a lot of time pouring over the faces of these boys ... not at all. Let's just say that I now know where Koyama has freckles that I wouldn't have known a few months ago! XD
