Although I enjoying posting a new picture each day, my photography has recently started to feel a little more like work than play. However, my father-in-law gave me Camera Creative (by Chris Gatcum) for Christmas. It offers several suggestions for fun, creative, and playful photography with detailed instructions on how to do each technique. This was an easy one – it simply involved using a scanner to “photograph” an actual object. Because the scanner light is so bright, it blacks out the background. The effect is very interesting. The image is imperfect (I consider this a *plus*) and the yellow and green on black are eye-catching. Delightful. Stay tuned for my shot at more easy techniques like this one!
