Day Lily... Picture Made With A Scanner
Ken Mac from http://greenwichvillagenydailyphoto.blogspot.com/ posted this on http://leavesgrass.blogspot.com/
HOW TO DO:
First you put the flower over the scanner's glass. the flower must be face down. Next you arrange the flower as you like. then cover the flower gently with a black fabric, very dense, (all the scanner's superficies.) Don't shut the scanner's cover...if you do this, you may crumple the flower. Then turn on the scanner. Next you can save the image in some file you choose. The interesting thing in this process is the unexpected: we don't know exactly how the flowers will show up. It's an amazing surprise!
I think leaves of grass is on a blogging break, (she lives in Brazil) but go there and look at some of the flowers that have been scanned. They are amazing. You will have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the first page that comes up and on your way down, look at some of her pictures. I wish she would start blogging again.
I haven't tried the scanning flowers yet because my scanner is not working properly, but as soon as I can, I'm going to try it.
