Welcome to my blog of natural curves!

Welcome to my blog of own original scans and Photoshop-restored select pages from mainly Danish Vintage-Erotica Magazines (50s to late 90s) like 'Ugens Rapport', 'Super Rapport', 'Guld Rapport', 'Classic Rapport', 'Pige-Special', 'Cats', 'Express', 'Varieté', 'PinUp', and more. And this was back when hair down below were generally EXISTING (even in pr0n!). Today, pubic hair seems to be mainly a reminder of "a bygone age". Yes, my thoughts exactly: this blog will focuse on such fertile-looking fem's (if I scan a shaved fem, she will most likely have big natural boobs, since I am a boob-man :)). This blog is also dedicated to 'Ugens Rapport', a classic Danish adult magazine sold in amazing 200.000 copies per week during the 70s in Denmark (had its 40th birthday in Feb 2012).

2014.12.22 • 'Danni Ashe' in BACHELOR (バチェラー) JULY 1996 VOL.20 NO.7 • Set 1 • 12 IMG + 1 BONUS IMG (Ayleen Lapper)

I finally have restored fresh scans of Danni Ashe, my first set ever of the "90s Queen of Slim'n'Curvy" (from THE Japanese 'BACHELOR' mag)! :O

I did a second Scanner Calibration before scanning this set, so the colors are as true to the print source as possible with my current scanner (I only let the scanner apply a calibrated color profile, everything else is handled in Photoshop, so I have full control of the final quality).

I included a BONUS image too....of Ayleen Lapper, from a very HQ glossy page...personally, I believe it is one of the best-looking scans I have released, so far.

Before your eyes hopefully will enjoy the final scans, I want to show a side-by-side comparison below, so you have an idea of the Scanner Calibration Results. Even though the Untouched scan to the left (before calibration) does not actually look that bad, the colors are more flat (or more "lifeless", if you will). The Calibrated scan in the center shows more true colors (and more shadow details), but has a slightly green color-cast which has been removed in the Retouched scan to the right.

2014.12.15 • 'Lisbeth' in Teenage Sex 12, 1979 (CC) • Set 1 • 15 IMG + 7 PAGES

I decided to kick-off the non-snowy winter -- in these parts of the land, sadly :( -- with some fresh'n'cool (snowy!) HC (!!) retro scans of the snow-white-haired Lisbeth, a fruitful, NATURAL Danish teen model who was active during the late 70s (at least). Note: This is also the first B/G scans to "penetrate" this blog, so do expect a happy ending ;) (if you thought this blog was softcore only...you thought right, that is...until now which came as a surprise for me too :O). I mostly avoid scanning hardcore content, but I will make a few exceptions now and then (and Lisbeth is one exception I will gladly make!).

And what do you know, I too jumped on the X-Mas bandwagon, re-designed my scan-index-pic with a frosty touch, snow flakes and all...even (most importantly) added a boob-grabbin' snowman... :P (and so much for keepin things simple: the original index-design was much more less-is-more-ish...maybe it still is as I did not add a Merry X-Mas greeting cliché  :D :P)

...or did you have another happy ending in mind? Now you know why I dislike restoring hardcore stuff in Photoshop...it's just not that fun for me to retouch dicks at pixel-level :/ But heck, Lisbeth WAS worth it! (And I am a boob-man, afterall.)


New scanner + calibration = Leah Stewart in BACHELOR - JUNE 1997 (Vol.21 No.6)

After a long break from scanning, I recently decided to get a new (bigger!) A3 scanner which is seriously great for large photobooks. :O It is a bit overkill for private use...still, I wanted a good A3 scanner. They seem hard to come by for anything else than business purposes. But this flatbed CCD scanner seemed to be the right choice for my purposes.

Sadly, I am a sucker for quality and meticulousness, so I wanted to achieve the best results possible from my new semi-high-end scanner: a scanner calibration was highly needed (but shite...this is complicated stuff, even for a seasoned hobby scanner like myself with 10+ years of Photoshop experience).

I spent weeks learning about calibration. Finally, I purchased an IT8 target from targets.coloraid.de (very high quality and non-pricey), one based on FUJIFILM Crystal Archive Paper and another on KODAK Professional Paper. I used the Fuji target for my first calibration. The result is amazingly true colours, I must say (calibration is a must for graphical artists who are scanning their work). The scanner calibration is not permanent. From my understanding, calibration should be done once in a while (due to the aging of the scanner's bulp which causes colours to change after a certain period).

Now to the goodies :) ...well, just a single scan to show off the current calibration results. And not least, to show off the sweet'n'busty Leah from mid/late 90s for the very first time in this blog. :)

= Leah, after calibration and restoration!

My "before calibration" scan was a different image that I won't be posting, so you will have to compare with my older scans to see the difference in colour quality (hopefully obvious!).

My scans are still restored in Photoshop, but the scanner calibration should greatly reduce the time spend on restoring scans. :O

I still have a lot of non-scanned stuff, and the calibration have certainly revived my motivation to actually scan that stuff, so hopefully I can find time to update this blog a bit more in the future!

Note: I decided to post in English again :P

Note 2: For best viewing quality, monitor calibration is needed. For this, I recommend LCD test pages like the Lagom LCD monitor test pages and/or X-Rite ColorMunki Display (non-pricey, decent results with included software, optimal results with dispcalGUI).
