Photogrammetry - Sponge Applicator

Work In Progress / 08 January 2019

More photogrammetry experiments using Reality Capture this time on a 10 cm diameter sponge applicator. Notice the small wire that I used to balance the object in the air for photo capture. 😲 I'm impressed by the amount of detail that is picked up on such a small object without using a macro lens or tube. In this instance, I used my usual fixed 50mm lens but this time I had the photos focus stacked before feeding them into Reality Capture.  You can do the focus stacking in Photoshop (slower & more cumbersome) or in focus stacking software such as Helicon Focus or Zerene Stacker.
