The Wiki defines Photogrammetry as the science of making measurements from photographs, especially for recovering the exact positions of surface points. And, it may be used to recover the motion pathways of designated reference points located on any moving object, on its components and in the immediately adjacent environment. If you don’t understand this definition then watch this vimeo made by an artist/photographer and hopefully it would explain the process better.
Photogrammetry is an exciting technology according to Kwai Bun, the photographer and creator of this cool stuff!
“I’m an adventurous and enthusiast photographer”, said Bun about his passion.
Bun said the photogrammetry process is especially suitable for high-end human scan due to the flexible scanning scale and speed of acquisition.
This video shows a small clip of Bun’s journey on this project. The founder and director of ManyMany Creations Ltd. & Quantum Matrix Ltd begins to assemble his own rig installation from scratch. The project showcases beautifully presented 3D scanning results for various talents with close-up head, full body and art poses juxtapositions. The video is also a great overview to anyone curious about how photogrammetry can be used in 3D scanning Human.
