The Family Picture Album

On several different days we had the opportunity to look at old family photos, from the Campbell/Chambers (Judy & Jeanette) side as well as the Stanton/Aviet/Plane (Granny Stanton) side. Rather than leave the pictures in their various days they're combined here in a digital photo album.

These are photos of photos - we used the digital camera to make copies of the photographs. Our success varied from picture to picture. The camera isn't good at focusing close in, so in many cases the pictures were taken by laying the album on the ground and shooting from a standing position. The photos were then cleaned up with the computer, cutting away the borders (and feet and bellies), correcting angles and adjusting light and contrast to make the photo as crisp as possible.

The actual photographs are better quality than these copies - in the future, the plan is to get a proper digital scanner down to New Zealand and scan every photo in every album to preserve these memories for longer than the film media lasts.
