Scanning/ Capture Services

Home/Scanning/ Capture Services

What if I need to have my film scanned or my artwork photographed first?

Do not worry, we offer both scanning and digital capture services. The best part of having Booksmart Studio create your digital file, is that we do not charge you for color correction for colorcast introduced in the capture or scanning process. However, if you are trying to change the colors due to aesthetic or subjective reasons then we discuss a fee for that service. Otherwise, the color accuracy is on us! After all, aren’t we suppose to be color experts.

Film Development

We do not develop film at Booksmart Studio.

However, our good friend Edgar Praus of Praus Productions is literally right down the street. In fact, only 5 buildings and we often eat lunch together. Praus Productions is one of the leading film development and traditional darkroom printers still in business today.

Edgar received his MFA from RIT’s photography program and continues to photograph himself with either his 8″x10″ or Hasselblad’s in-hand. Praus Productions develops: C-41, E-6, B&W film, Kodachrome (as B&W), produces contact sheets, and darkroom prints. BUT HEY, you want digital prints from Booksmart Studio, CORRECT? Edgar will often bring a clients work to us once it is developed, if we are to produce final digital prints. No extra fees for the delivery, since he is normally walking up the street to go to lunch.
