Group Description

This group is for people who like to do "photos" with a flat bed scanner.
The prime advantage of this is, that you can make very high resolution pictures. For example, scanning a 5x5 inch object on a 3200 dpi scanner, is like taking this photo with a 256 million pixel camera!
Using the full scanner window will give you 983 million pixel.
This scann can be printed 80x120 inch (2mx3m) with 300 dpi ...
When lighting the object with the scanners built-in light, the easiest way to get a deep black background, is removing the scanners lid and replacing it by a half pipe tunnel made from black card board.
Test it and open up for you this huge field for a new style of creativity.
