Ramey Memo High Resolution Microfiche Scans

High Dynamic Range photography has been used to harness the range of tones present with negatives and in particular the "memo." The products of HDR imaging have been processed into working files in the form of image stacks where the interaction among layers has been influenced variously to:

  • reduce the visual interference of film grain within the emulsion impinging on the character forms (fonts)
  • separate out the tones of the paper base from the fonts used in the memo to suppress background interference
  • isolate and ('lift') tonal values of the fonts away from the background in order to render character forms more clearly.

Resulting files provide a range of image states ranging from low contrast grey tones to contrasty separated tones for interpretive evaluation.

We are offering a $10,000 reward for the first person or group/lab that can provide a definite read of the Ramey memo. The point of contact for this is rameymemo@gmail.com.
