Learn about which cameras to use, along with settings and strategies for taking photos.
- [Narrator] Recap is about more than just laser scans.…You can also import a series of photographs,…and create 3D models in a process called photogrammetry.…So I want to show you an example of doing so,…and I'll be using a piece of sculpture.…But photogrammetry can actually…be used for objects big and small.…So at the largest scales they mount cameras…to either manned or unmanned aerial vehicles,…and fly huge sites.…So you can use photogrammetry to do surveying…of acres and acres of land from the air…using one of these aerial photographs.…
Or down to the scale that we're gonna talk about,…where I went into the museum with my iPhone camera…and just took a bunch of photographs…around a piece of sculpture that looked interesting to me.…And then turned that into a 3D model.…And really everything in between.…So a lot of folks are doing this work with drones.…So if you are a drone pilot then that's another option,…and that's a great way to get building scale photogrammetry.…So I've got this article open here onscreen…
