I've held on to boxes of old family photos, and hundreds of negatives in envelopes, mistakenly believing that I had corresponding prints for all these loose negatives. I was wrong! I decided to take a quick glance of some the negatives and discovered I had never seen many of these prints! Not having a proper negative scanner, I decided to photograph each negative with my Sony A1 (by securing each negative to a glass sheet back-lit by a light source) and photographing them with my macro lens. Many of these negatives were in pretty bad shape, and many of the photos themselves were mis-focused, mis-exposed, etc. Once I selected the negatives that "stood a chance", I reversed the negatives into positives in Lightroom, and performed what touch-up I felt they needed, including cropping. The Face Recognition and reconstruction in certain AI softwares like Topaz and Photoshop are certainly amazing and I used this when it proved helpful! This is a Work-In_Progeress!
