Photogrammetry is the art and science of extracting 3D information from photographs. By using hundreds of overlapping photos, a 3D model can be generated.
Most of the use cases I came across involved creating 3D models of locations or static objects like statues. I didn’t see any examples of photogrammetry for 3D models of people, I was curious about its limitations when it comes to scanning people.
This process reminded me of my early screen printing days. I use to screen print posters in my garage and because of my DIY approach, each poster would be slightly different, never perfect, with built-in imperfections. This gave the prints a lot of personality and was fun to see the outcomes.
In the same way, the 3D models produced from my photogrammetry process are unique and full of imperfections.
Afterward, I used AR technology so I could share the portrait with others using a QR code.
