Experimenting with photogrammetry at home

This is going to be a long one… Photogrammetry is my hobby for the last couple of years. My first try was a small wooden Piggy from four or five years ago.

This is a topic that I’ve seen come up every few months in some form or another. Removing photographers from the process of image creation.

The Daily Promo – Sam McGuire

Sam McGuire Who printed it? Newspaper Club (Digital Tabloid, 55gsm paper). I got a test done of the 90gsm bright and it looked really clean and amazing but the 55gsm added some nice contrast and a bit of grain, plus the paper has some grit to it and this nice paper smell… as dumb as that sounds. Who Designed it? My friend Jon San Nicolas at The Line Four – @jonsannicolas @thelinefour and then my rep Emily Heller @jellybeanreps helped with the photo editing. Tell me about the ...

Blog Note

Having just moderated 400+ comments over the past few days, I thought I'd mention a few nuts and bolts FYI— Names: In the "Featured" comments, I reproduce commenter names exactly as written by them in the commenting box. The only rule I have is that I do not reproduce "handles" that are business names or come-ons (for example, "Best Seattle Drone Photog"), or URLs. (Or crude/profane handles, although that almost never happens.) Most often, I solve those problems by not featuring (and sometimes n...
