Seeing the work of Nick Veasey and his use of X-rays, I got to thinking about literal portraiture of showing the human features in a form we can not see from the exterior in its detail. Therefore I was reminded of the time I had dental x-rays for some orthadontical work.
My first attempt at capturing the xrays was to use the main A3 flat bed scanner. The idea was to scan the xrays on the glass and then either crop down later or use a tool on the scanning software to crop to the image size required, after the preview and before the main scan. However the scan did not exactly come out in all of it’s detail nor colour. Furthermore the scanner picked up too much detail and showed up all the marks on both the negative and the glass being that the negative was too transparent.
