    Who needs a camera?

    I just threw a few things onto my scanner, dropped a towel on top of it all, and voila...digital photos. The prints didn't turn out too crappy, either.

    I think it's too dark for the web, interesting technique though, never dream of taking picture using a scanner.

    If you're refering to the third one I put up, it did darken it to make it a tad more sinister...

    Here is the original. There is a big ugly line in it where the scanner paused and I moved letting in light under the towel. Gonna keep tinkering... :D

    This is funny.
    I completely forgot, but I remember making a scan of my hand under a black T-shirt and using that for an advertising about 10 years ago. Digital camera's we had never heard of in those days LOL

    Cool. That's the best in the series IMO
    I'm curious what it may look like in B/W.

    did someone say black and white?

    Here ya go...

    I let the scanner run its "preview" to determine what it was scanning with nothing on it. The scanner precieved it as a black and white photo...
    The print looks a hell of a lot better. For some reason when I reduce the dimensions of the B&W they get all pixelated...
