GOAL: For this project, you will be using the Epson V700 flatbed scanner to create 5 images.
Flatbed scanner photography, sometimes referred to as scanography, is the process of capturing digitized images of objects using a flatbed scanner. Many photographers utilize scanners to create lensless photography—this type of image making falls under the category of Digital Alt Processes.
For this project, you will be creating 5 thoughtful, composed images using the Epson V700 Photo Scanner in the Mac Lab. Your choice of subject matter is open—you may create still life, portraits, self-portraits, collage imagery, etc.
You may work with objects, old photographs, people, etc. IF you are using objects, do not use anything messy or anything that contains liquid (i.e., messy food, liquids) Do not use anything that will scratch the glass on the scan bed!
However, it is best to choose a theme so that your final images will be cohesive. See below for examples/inspiration!
DUE DATES: Tuesday, 4/4/17 — 5 scanner compositions saved as TIFF files turned into your Project 7 folder on Google Drive. Label your files lastname_firstname_photo_scan_1, lastname_firstname_photo_scan_2, etc.
