Description

EXPERIMENT: When doing past synth (Café de Antaño - Farewell Gala! (full night)... WOW! ) I was surprised to find self-portrait shots (cam held at arm's length) w/ friends synthed together! It was kinda cool cycling the transitions. Well, I've taken LOTS of such shots, and from all around the world. So, I thought, let's throw a bunch at Photosynth and see what happens!...

HINT: Use SPACEBAR/Shift_SPACEBAR to move forward/backward thru fotos.

Well, not as synthy as I had hoped, but did make 11 clumps of 2 pix each. In previous synth, 3 pix got clumped, so i need to do some more testing to see what's up. Also, some other foto groups didn't clump, but I think they should (could) have. Maybe there are TOO MANY pix and it's "confusing" Photosynth(?)

Regardless, I think it's an interesting "study" in friends:) Aso, countries represented include: U.S., Spain, Italy, Germany, Holland, Israel, India, and Jamaica.

And as usual, I've put in a couple surprises!:)

P.S. Makes me think: might be cool to have a special Photosynth option to do matching based on facial recognition. What do ya think?

BTW, the synthiness I'm looking for has nothing to do w/ point clouds. True, they can be interesting, but I think there is so much more potential to Photosynth. With some enhancements and creative application, I think it could provide a great, new experience of people and places.

The 2 photos clumps are pretty interesting. It did find some good matches... I wonder if you pretty much made the same smile and wore the same shirt in every photo... it might link them all together. We did this with photos of people watching the inauguration: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=44fbe543-600c-404f-8ceb-8af763ca9b00

Mayb glasses helped? Perhaps a textured hat would also help? Same smile, same expression. The best was the 3-way clump from the "Cafe" synth. That was totally unexpected!

Well, it was a fun experimented:) More?...

P.S. Again, I kno face recognition algorithms have been extensively developed as of late, so perhaps a special option to key of faces would b cool:)
