Foregrounds and backdrops for scanner art

Foregrounds and backdrops for scanner art: Creating Art with Your Desktop Scanner
Foregrounds and backdrops for scanner art: Creating Art with Your Desktop Scanner

Foregrounds. This is the stuff that goes down first. Opaque, translucent, or clear. Paper, plastic, fabric, metal mesh, glitter, or even liquids. Foreground material needs to be thin if you’re using a shallow DOF scanner. Get creative, use lights in the backdrop or as the backdrop, still lights or moving lights. If you happen to be a photographer then maybe you have a big studio LED light, which can be very nice. Especially when trying for a translucent effect for things like botanical or other potentially translucent subjects.
