Using a scanner to "take photos" is like having great studio lighting, a top of the art photocopy machine, and a high quality camera all in one. The process results in a shallow depth of a field, amazing detail, and best of all a dreamy, magazine-like quality.
Materials Needed: flatbed scanner, a computer, subjects to "photograph"
Subject Matter: Don't stop at 2D. 3D objects can work, too. More tips on selecting images in Vincent's article.
All images below made with a flatbed scanner.
