Photosynth...I don't think I did it right

Here it is:


I don't particularly like the way it turned out. I think next time I'm going to try for a panoramic shot. I think that may work better. I'm going to have to look at some other examples of panorama shots and see if it's something I want to try. So far, I'm not too impressed with the process. It's kind of clunky and hard to navigate the photos.

It will be a few weeks before I go anywhere that I can take pictures for my next try, unless I just go out and take photos of something local. If I do that it will probably be something along the San Gabriel River. I'll let you know here when I do my next project.

I haven't really had much of interest to post lately. I just figure nobody wants to read: I got up, ate, went to work, worked some crime scenes, came home, ate, slept and did it all over again. So, today I thought I'd write about something I came across on the bing.com search engine.

Photosynth, a nifty little web app that allows a photographer to take several pictures of an object, landscape, building, etc., and then upload them to the Photosynth program to be stitched together into a type of 3D montage. I'm excited to give it a try.

I'm going to have to think of a good subject for my first attempt. I will start out small and get the hang of it. I'll post my results here. Might not get to it for a day or two. I have supper with Dad tonight so I don't know if I'll have time to do it until tomorrow.

Regardless, I'll post a link to the results here when I get it done.
