Artist Gallery: Dale Hoopingarner

Scanner photography, or scanography, is a fairly unknown but growing art technique, using a digital scanner to capture images of flowers, leaves, seashells and more. The unique images the scanners capture yield an almost three-dimensional effect. But after visualizing and composing the shots, that’s where the hard work begins: detailed editing to remove any stray pollen or dust, and to turn the background 100% black — a process that can take 15-20 hours per image and often much more.  I don’t mind the work, and I love the way the jet black background makes the resulting images “pop”!
