using a scanner as a camera

Using a scanner as a device to capture images is relatively untapped. Sometimes referred to as ‘Scanography’ the process is as simple as it sounds, take an item and scan it. The results vary depending on light leeks, ambient light sources and of course the marks on the scanner. The initial reaction might be to Photoshop the imperfections out, but I rather think they add character, the images become reminiscent of Tintypes. The individual images have been placed together on a single image file and presented as a triptych.
