While Jim and I were in Florida last Winter, we attended a wonderful presentation by Susan Francis who is a professional photographer in Orlando, Florida. Susan and her husband John own and operate Harmon’s School of Photography.
During the meeting, Susan showed everyone how to use a scanner to create interesting and beautiful photographs. Susan is an amazing photographer/artist and her work has inspired me to try my hand at scannography (also called scanography, Scanner Photography or Scan-art).
Jim and I have a multi-purpose scanner/printer so when I tried to scan something for the first time it did not look as good as I expected. The depth of field was too shallow. After doing some research, we came to learn we needed to buy a dedicated scanner that had a sensor that was a Charge-Coupled Device (CCD). So, we bought ourselves the Epson Perfection V550 scanner and we are very happy with the results.
