scanner photography

Some time ago i find some information about scanner photography and decide to try.It was very interesting and exciting to connect scanner to camera and turn into huge digital back.I didn't have that huge camera so i decided to make one.
First i made foam board prototype which was working great. Scanner camera is working almost like old viewing cameras. First stop is focusing with ground glass ,second instead of glass plate or film put scanner on camera back. Bellow pictures from this set up.  

Each exposure is about 8 second and subject needs to stay still until scanner sensor stop reading view from lens.

Pictures are scanned in 600 dpi to tiff files ( about 70 mg each ). Later they are process in photoshop.

Medicated scanners on Windows system may only working with VueScan software. More about scanner photography in next posts
