Ricoh makes digital copiers, so a large and dedicated assembly line cleans each photo, hangs them individually to dry, then scans the images to convert them to digital files. Each is then remastered, and tagged with a specific ID number, then organized via region and notable feature for proper sorting and classification. At which point, the originals are packaged in protective bags and sent back to where they were found.New bags for these smaller cameras -"The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who’ll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you’re sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that’s almost never the case." -Chuck CloseMore info: http://photorec.tvWant answers to your questions?
