Reading the Origin of Species

Doing this shoot took quite some effort from Quell as you can imagine - it numbered almost two hundred shots in total. I have removed a few that were really too blurry (remind me to go buy a DSLR one of these days or, failing that, a tripod) but still ended up with 184 photo's.

I really love the way photosynth analysed it; in 3D view you can see it matched her almost completely, quite unlike the previous shoot where it mostly found the surroundings. I'm still wondering wether or not I should have left out the series circling her head, but decided to leave them in for now as a "mini" series. Might get a bit confusing though.

One point where synth failed me is discerning heights, so in the overall circle you will sometimes drop or raise in height - there are actually 3 series all taken at a different height. I would have preferred if those would rotate seperately, or even better, let you modify your height seperate from your view angle. We'll see, perhaps in some new version.

This was really fun to watch, having a person in it makes it very interesting. It's certainly inspired me to try to get started with photosynth.

Great work! Try holding down "Ctrl" while rotating the scene (using either the halo or the arrow keys).

Nice job. If you're going to all the trouble, I would recommend the DSLR. Awesome detail that way.

Hey, how about adding some closeups of the page she was reading?

Unfortunately there is, as far as I know, no way to add photo's to an already submitted synth. Nor would it make much sense except for still objects since there is no way to get the positions exactly right.

That being said, I daresay that in the 184 shots there are some closeups to find.
