Join this three-hour workshop to experiment with "scanography" — or scanner photography — and discover your unique aesthetic approach through every striking image you create.
Marzia will share her knowledge of scanner art and teach you how to transform three-dimensional objects into stunning two-dimensional images.
In the workshop, you will gain knowledge about utilizing the scanner's light and software to achieve superior quality images and experiment with various effects.
Scanography is an art from that involves using a flatbed scanner as a camera to produce digital images of objects or still life set-ups, often including everyday items, natural materials, or found objects. By adjusting the scanner's settings and placing the object on the glass, you can capture fine details like the veins of a leaf or the textures of a piece of bark.
A unique aspect of "Scanography" is the ability to create surreal effects with vibrant colours by moving objects on the scanner glass.
This technique produces dreamy and abstract images, resulting in a unique and dynamic composition.
