Photo experiment – day 9 of 31

Today’s experiment is not exactly photography – this image is produced by scanning.

What I learned:

  • getting all the dust off the scanner is critical, and frustrating
  • composing isn’t easy, since you see the composition from the back side
  • I couldn’t get one of those super-high-res scans due to my scanner’s limits – so this was at 600ppx (while my scanner goes up to 2400ppx, it won’t handle the resulting scan size – so the 2400ppx scans are only possible if you are scanning something that is just an inch or two across).

Definitely something to try again – probably with multiple scans so that the layering and composition can be more sophisticated.
