Photographic Material
The priority in preparing material for this website has been to provide images that give the best possible representation of a specific scene and wherever possible allow the identification of individuals through their faces. Users of this site will find that the photographic material is of variable quality.  It was felt, therefore, that some form of description of both the original state of the material and the steps taken to reproduce it here was relevant.
    
The source material
  • The best preserved items are those that were produced using high quality equipment. Representative of these are the various professional annual photographs.
  • A number of amateur photographs were taken using good quality cameras, though features, such as faces, are frequently indistinct.
  • Amateur colour photographs became common from the early 1970’s onwards, however the fugitive nature of the pigmentation has resulted in a number losing their colour over the intervening years.
  • Generally, photographs taken in natural light provide better pictures than those taken under flash, particularly where there are significant areas of white (such as shirts) giving rise to high levels of reflection.

     

Copying and editing techniques

  • The best copying process was found to be using a flat-bed scanner at a high resolution using a non-compression format, usually bitmap (.bmp).  These digital images could then be edited by cropping, enhancing colour, etc. without loss of overall quality before being compressed as a jpeg (jpg) using Adobe Photoshop.
  • Wherever possible the material was placed directly onto the scanner.
  • In some cases the material was mounted in albums with detachable leaves, but covered with acetate protective film and had to be scanned with this in place; this could give rise to some reflection of light in the process of scanning.
  • In other situations pictures had to be photographed at a high resolution, most frequently where material could not be borrowed or mounted in albums that could not be scanned.
  • Where there has been significant colour loss, or the original source material has a significant ‘washed out’ appearance, there has been an attempt to provide the best possible representation of the scene being depicted through colour enhancement and increased contrast.  Similarly, where flash has resulted in high levels of light reflection, the image has been darkened and mid-tones increased to make greater sense of the scene in the individual pictures.  However, in some cases this has led to slightly unnatural levels of specific colours or contrast.  
  • We have a small number of photographs that only exist as negatives, or the negative images provide the most satisfactory pictures.  These have been converted to digital images with a dedicated slide/film scanner and appropriate image editing software. Again, the original digital image was stored in a non-compressed format (tagged image format – .tif) prior to editing and subsequent compression for web use.
