Scannography, Photography Using a Scanner

Ok guys, scannography is so cool. I didn’t even know that this was a thing but I am so happy that I know now. I think that things that you can create with a scanner are so cool. Luckily I had some left over flowers from a macro shoot that I did a few days ago so I just reused them. I think that I kinda missed the point and used too many flowers as you can see in the setup photo but I wanted a lifestyle photo so I used a lot of flowers. I should probably try to not be obsessed with lifestyle pictures but it’s kinda my thing.

Anyway, the process wasn’t bad at all. I followed this tutorial which was extremely helpful. It had step by step instructions that were actually very helpful. I opened up Photoshop and went to File<Import<Images from device then opened up the scanner that I was using. I layed down a bunch of flowers then closed the scanner and let the scanner do its thing. Between moving the flowers around and making sure that everything fit in the photo, it took me about 25 scans to get the one that I liked. After I found the photos I liked, I went in and added some edits like a gradient and vibrance. This was probably my favorite part of the creative choice segment
