An assignment from a few years ago I enjoyed was to create a photogram, an image produced with light sensitive paper without a camera. This weekend I stumbled upon them.
These photograms sparked my interest in camera-less photography again, so I decided to experiment with scanner photography. Here is my first go at it. I used a sheet of transparency film for copiers to protect my scanner. All images were captured with the scanner bed open.
This was done with flower bed marbles and the lights off.
Then I experimented with food. Here is my set up. I was in a closet.
The images with a black background are produced in the dark. The images with the white background are captured with a large led closet light on.
I loved this. More experimenting to come. Have you ever used your scanner to create art? Did you enjoy it?
