Snail Shell

snail shell and fingers

Backyard biology has always been a hobby of mine. Frustrated with the inadequate focal length of popular cameras, I turned to my Epson 2580 Photo Scanner to capture more detailed images.

Production Notes: Snail shell scanned at 800 dpi 48-bit color and saved as a jpg. The original scan area was approximately a full page. Magnification results from cropping the large image down to small dimensions. Picasa 3.0 and Paint.Net enabled a little digital cleanup. Supporting objects were erased, black background was painted in, and minor imperfections in the glass retouched.
