Photo Scanning and Photogrammetry

A long time ago I took a class with Tim Dobbert in college on "image modeling", or "photogrammetry." Back then we used RealViz Image Modeler, which has since been bought by Autodesk.

This technology has come a long way and has become a key part of my workflow lately.

Here are some examples of scans I have done in the last few weeks:

Here are a couple of quick cemetary statues.  The blue rectangles represent the photos which generate the model.  You can see that, although more photos are preferred, it is possible to get a decent scan with just a few photos.  Some people are even using IPhone cameras to get pretty good scans.
