Scanner Photography

A lot of folks don't realize that even an inexpensive flat bed scanner makes a great 8x12, f2.0 view camera. You just can't take it on a photo shoot! Using my old Epson 2450, a bunch of late fall leaves from our deck, this image was scanned at 300 dpi with the lid open. If the lights are off the background goes black. Everything next to the glass is super sharp due to the size of this huge "sensor"! Loaded into photoshop, I used the Imaging Factory B&W Pro black and white conversion filter to get this result. A little sharpness was added using the High Pass filter technique at radius 2.0. Enjoy, Jeff

  1. I love this. I really should get serious about trying this a little. I like that it's black/white too. Linda B
