Scanography is the process of capturing digitized images of objects for the purpose of creating printable art using a flatbed “photo” scanner. This process records extremely fine detail with a rather shallow depth of field and produces a digital file (or “digital negative”) for printmaking. The built-in light source from the scanner provides excellent sharpness, color saturation, and unique shadow effects.
Once the object has been scanned, the artist uses a computer and a photo editor which provides the artist a greater level of control, allowing, at a minimum, the ability to “clean” the image by removing specks and other imperfections in the capture.
