3D scanning has been occupying my thoughts. I’m desperate to get to the next level, whatever that may be, of my work. Getting an accurate, detailed, photogrammetric scan of my subjects is the first step. I’m hitting the wall of my tiny kidney bean-like brain though… and my wallet, seriously… this this is getting expensive.
Still, the work goes on and I’ve made many prototypes of lighting rigs (lighting is my main enemy at this point). The necessary components of a good photogrammetric scan is control of the depth of field and maintaining focus in indirect light. There’s been some success though, I’ve included a few small scale test scans below, but you can see more on my Sketchfab site:
Even mistakes can be interesting. This is something that I’m working on, a new approach to my photography and art (Yes, everything here is photographically derived). There’s a lot of missteps, learning experiences and fuck ups. But, man, I’m enjoying the hell out of being a failure.
Thought you all might like a look at what’s been going on, finally.
