I really like the scans you’ve shown in this series, Alan. I think, too, there’s a lot of potential in this technique, not just for botanicals, but for a lot of different subjects. I’m hoping to inspire you to keep up the good work.

Thanks for the encouragement Ken. Just so you know, these aren’t scans but rather photos made on a light box. I’ve been doing this for years and so have countless others. I actually think your white card field technique is more unique and promising.
There! A mutual admiration society :)
I used the lightbox on my fall leaves last year, too. I published them on a lightscatter page titled (appropriately) fall leaves 2016. https://lightscatter.wordpress.com/fall-leaves-2016/
I had a lot of fun with this project (as I’m sure you’re having with yours) and it was the first time I tethered the camera to a laptop. The lightbox is actually an old (1970’s) x-ray viewer that I bought at an auction for $2 but it still works well.
I love the translucency and subtle shift of colors. Will there be a Part Three?
Thanks Linda. Part Three coming up soon as well as Four.
Superb, Alan. Wonderful images….
Much appreciated Mic.
“Small Plate” is also like calligraphy…and the shrouds are more seen though than covering for me, like a light covering that doesn’t obscure. I think that’s my favorite.
Late catching up to your comment, Lynn, and apologies for the delay.
I agree the shrouds don’t cover much — it was more their shapes that inspired me to call them that.
Thanks. Much appreciated.
