Celeste and I began working with photoscan one day after we met with Professor Poehler. We decided to take photos of a mini spiderman keychain and use that to make a 3D model. After taking the photos and uploading them into the program, we realized the importance in lighting and angling that is needed when we take photos that we will use in photoscan. We also saw this when we went as a class to take photos of the Old Chapel and tried to make a model in class. When we paid more attention to the detail of the building and got more pictures, the model was much more accurate than if we only took a few pictures. When we tried to build the model in class, it came out as a fuzzy ball, and it wasn’t very accurate. Celeste and I then tried to make a model on our own and added a few more photos. Our model came out very nice, and we were very happy about that. The only thing that would have helped would be to have gotten some overhead shots of the roof because it caused the top of the Old Chapel in our model to be engulfed in clouds. Overall, the program wasn’t as hard to use as we had thought once we got a hang of it.
