Scanner Images

Scanner Images
Digitally produced images

These images were produced as part of an experimental photography course. The overall aim was to think about photography and image production in a different way, using both chemical and digital techniques such as home-made pinhole cameras, scanners and photographic paper to produce images.

Using a scanner as a camera, digital images are made by placing natural objects on the scanner glass, using the scanner's software parameters to produce different effects and outcomes, ranging from microscopic detail to painting-like effects. This provides a way to view the natural objects in a different light and bring out new detail.
