Good morning! Did you meet the team behind 500px? If you haven’t yet, visit our team page for a brief introduction. For you to get to know us better, to find out who are the folks behind 500px and what it is that we actually do we’re starting a new ongoing feature on the blog titled “Meet the team”.
We’d like to start our introduction sharing our favorite music of 2012 with you. It’s our playlist from Grooveshark so it may require Flash.

Scanography is one of our favourite photo techniques because of its simplicity and ability to tap into creativity. If you don’t know what scanography is, scanography is a technique where you can take photos using a scanner or a photocopy machine. All you have to do is get access to a scanner, plug it into a computer, arrange your photo subjects creatively and scan away.
Fine art scanography dates to 1968 and it is just as relevant today. We’ve gathered great scanography photos from 500px which we hope will inspire you to experiment with this process. Please share your results with us, upload photos to profile and post links in the comments below. Thanks!
Let’s share your passion for photography, trade our experiences and share great finds! Leave a comment with your favourite photo related liks, videos, DIYs, etc. or email email@example.com. We are always looking for new ideas and interesting photo content to feature on the blog and would love to get your input.
