Using Scanner as Digital Camera

  • Are you feeling bored by using your digital camera? 
  • Did not plan for a photography trip? 
  • Are you willing to do some experiments using your digital gadgets? 
  • Would you like to create some digital art?
Try using your scanner as a digital camera for your next experiment. Yes, your home scanner can be used as a digital camera to scan some interesting objects and create a digital art out of it.

You can scan anything that will fit on the scanning glass of your scanner, but take care not to scratch or damage the glass in any way. Ideal subject for scanning include essentially flat, nearly two dimensional objects such as dried leaves or flower petals, embroidery, textiles, textured papers or fruits and vegetables.
Other small objects also can be scanned like: jewelry, sea shells, insects, seeds rice, etc.

Being designed to record two dimensional objects, flat-bed scanners have only a limited depth of field. As a result on the parts of objects in contact with the scanner glass will be sharp and it wold look like a macro photography. While scanning the objects you will need to experiment with different type of background like colored cloth, textured paper. If you keep the lid open the background will be completely black. If you need a white background, either you can close the lid or use a white plain paper to cover the object.

Post scanning the objects using Adobe Photoshop software you will be able compose the picture as you wish. You could try plenty of color tint variations and you can also try to merge multiple scanned objects and make them as one picture.

Experimenting with scanner will test your creative mind, you will start producing digital arts which you would have not even thought of doing. It will be very interesting to see the post processed pictures.

Note: In the excitement of testing various objects you may damage your scanner glass, so do not try to scan anything that is damp or wet, as the moisture or the water may enter into your machine and machine may stop working.
