    Use a Scanner to present your image. Difficulty: Subject must be a 3-D object. No use of printed photos or positive/negative film.

    Thanks to yrkddn/Error403 for the theme suggestion!

    I can’t wait for this one. Just a few more technical bugs to work out, and…….

    I tried to schedule it far enough in advance that people could play with this between now and then. I’m looking forward to it myself.

    This project is still on my ‘to-do’ list. Haven’t had much luck finding an overhead projector nor scanner for cheap (craiglisters are so flakey!!).

    Yeah, I’m going to have to sneak into work on the weekend and hope my bosses don’t find me and question my mentality. That limits me to what I can do with the scanner though – no breaking it apart to get cool effects 🙁

    I actually bought two 10″ low-glare fresnal lenses for part of this project. If I can get all the stuff together, it will be an interesting marriage.

    Okay. Explain this to me. I have no idea what you are talking about.

    mopsy, it’s based on Error403’s entry from the Five Is Right Out contest. You can see it full-size here: http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/2815/threeapples.jpg

    He made that by placing the apples on the glass of a scanner, covering them with a cloth and then scanning them like you’d scan a printed photograph. So basically, it’s any image you can create by scanning objects, as long as it’s not just scanning a photo.

    good lord the geeks are going to get busy on this one… I just bought a new scanner/printer (all of $60), and as cheap as they are there’s a lot of room for maybe putting it in interesting situations….

    MASSIVE FACEPALM

    Until you said this, I was convinced that I had to go find a scanner to use. I’ve had a scanner/printer combo for the past five years. How could I not remember that? I see it multiple times every day! Well, at least this contest will be easier than I thought it would.

    Well I just asked my room mate if he had a scanner. He got up, went to his closet and handed me a scanner / printer that somebody gave him for free. Now all I have to do is find the software online and I am in business. Woot.

    The dining room table has a project we’re both working on on it 😉
