It's 2017? Crikey. Have some more non-photos on Destinations:
I might point a camera at bits of Seattle eventually. As soon as I find myself a castle.
Bonus Not Scanned By Me But Awesome corner:
- Fark Mechanical Workshop in Staufen - Fark’sche Werkstatt in Staufen - gorgeous capture of an historic workshop thingy somewhere in Germany.
- Botany Bay, Antarctica - chunk of Antarctic coastline shot from a drone. Bit fuzzy, but gloriously desolate.
- القلعة The Umayyad Palace - one of several ancient buildings in Jordan captured by mkhamra. Splendid stuff.
- South Corsica - beach and campsite for lazing around in while you pretend it's not bloody freezing outside in Seattle.
There's loads more stuff on the Workshop to go exploring - this brief list was by no means exhaustive. Also, this was a covert Sunday Things. IT BEGINS!
More work on that increasingly world-spanning Destinations - a couple more non-photos for you to explore. The full-3D versions are included with recent Destinations updates, while those of you lacking the necessary virtual reality goggles can feast your unfortunate virtuality-deprived eyes on these 2D screenshots of 3D scenes:
If you still haven't already discovered the magical secret 3D capture device hidden inside your existing digital SLR, more documentation is available - this time on Advanced Indoors Photogrammetry. Exciting.
And if you don't have a dSLR? YOU'RE WEIRD. Although decent mirrorless efforts are also acceptable. Just.
Edit 2016-10-30: now with another bonus random YouTube video recording!
I think you're all witnessing the future of my holiday photography - here's a VR-enabled, photogrammetric scan of Thingvellir National Park, Iceland as photographed in August 2015 and processed just recently with Reality Capture.
Yes, I'm testing out workflows and tools for that Destinations thing wot I'm working on. Enjoy!
Edit 2016-06-18: I tried finding a source photo which matches the screenshot shown above, for comparison purposes - it turns out there isn't one. That view is completely synthetic. Oooer.
