The March Self Portrait Challenge is “Scanography.” What this means is your image must be captured using a scanner of some sort. We can make beautiful art using all kinds of different tools – this should challenge you to use something a little different than what you usually turn to when making images, which is fun and informative to your creative process. 🙂
If you don’t have a scanner of your own, ask a friend or use one at your workplace (with permission, no getting in trouble at your job) or public library. Be careful –don’t hurt yourself or damage the scanner! Get creative and have fun – these images can be very striking and have a great quality to them that lends itself to creative posing, styling, and processing. Post processing the image is fine – the only constraint is it must be captured with a scanner of some sort.
