Thanks. This was my first try so I was pleased how they turned out. The inspiration came from the Howard Davis Book "Photographing Flowers"...
I just put the flower face down on the glass and put a piece of black velvet over it to keep the light out. In the book he built a 5" or so high box to go over the scanner glass. That's a better idea, I have to pick off a bunch of dust in photoshop.
I think the key was the processing. I don't remember all of the steps but I used CS6 to make the black blacker, etc. Used Nik filters to bring out the detail. I think I used 3-4 different Nik filters, but I don't remember. I just messed around with a bunch of combinations until I liked what I saw.
These are very nice, close to amazing. Can you tell us more about your technique, equipment, tutorials you may have found. I've always wanted to try this as well.
