my workplace in 3D!!!

well, not exactly. 😀

i found out about Photosynth by microsoft through Jayvee who announced the contest on teksilog.com the other day. i told myself i’d try it out but it required a MSN Live or Hotmail account. (wow, i had a hotmail account AGES ago! i used a pseudonym pa nga noong highschool. doon ko naman nakilala ang Honeylet. wow, flashback!!! and yes, Honeylet ang pangalan niya. that’s not a term of endearment. LOL. ibang araw na lang ang story namen. :D)

i had the patience to sign up for an account only recently and even more recent, the chance to take photos of my workplace in nice weather. i took a total of 28 photos of the building, taking shots at different angles and going from one side to the other, coming closer a few steps for each set.after that, i fired up Photosynth after downloading and installing it, processed the photos and voila! DONE! what i enjoyed most is the Point Cloud view. i think it takes the tie-points of the photos and recreates a somewhat 3-dimensional render of the photos you took.

pretty neat huh? and a nice addition is that you can geotag your photosynth. i did that on mine so maybe you’ll know where to find me if you need me. 😛 haha…

embedding doesn’t seem to work. 😦 you’ll just have to click here to see my photosynth. 🙂

take that DSLRs!!!

lol

just sharing one of a few photos taken at the office. 😀 eclipse1

and this is from a point and shoot camera! woot!!! hahaha… well, we had a few ‘better’ cameras lying around but mine was the only working one. one friend lost his DSLR batteries, our Canon A570 (i think) had no batteries either. and our pro photographer was nowhere in sight! probably off to a different site taking the photos, too. so, armed with my Kodak C613, *click*
