In my previous post, I wrote a recount of my trip to an analog photography festival. One of the artists there was Jocelyn Allen. One of her series was made using a printer scanner in which she only took photos of herself. This inspired me to try scanner photography myself. I started taking picture of objects but then I tried to use my hands and face as the photo subjects. I included very few of those photos, since most of them were too realistic and terrifying. There are many photographs that incorporate repetition. I achieved that by moving objects during the scanning process. The printer could be set to scan slower with a greater DPI (dots per inch), giving me time to move things about. I experimented a lot with composition, placing items inside or on one another, and trying to get a 3D effect. The scanner was open during the whole process, so I had to change the lighting of the photos on Adobe Lightroom, especially the background. In some, I changed the lighting and colour completely to get the look I desired. Both series were great fun to photograph and I'd really suggest you try scanner photography yourselves.
Who said you need a camera to take photographs?
