Did you know you could use your flatbed scanner to photograph objects? It’s a fascinating technique which I’ve just began to explore. Even the cheapest scanners have pretty good resolution and can give great and stunning results.
Place flowers or any object on the scanner and cover with black or colored paper or fabric. Close the lid and press copy. You can also try leaving the scanner lid up and copying for a much lighter print. Experiment a little...it's fun!
Is this an actual form of photography? Well...Photography can be described as a process to capture and display an image, then I would say yes, using a scanner to take photographs is a form of photography.
