Skeleton photography for 3D ARM
A 3DÂ modellingÂ company 3D ARM asked me recently to photograph a humanÂ skeletonÂ for them to make in to a 3D model from.
IÂ don’tÂ really understand the science bit but their work is amazingÂ www.3darm.com you can see for yourself…. they needed as much texture and image detail as I could give them.
I decided to hire a set of Bowens 500’s from Calumet in Birmingham who were really helpful… my onlyÂ niggleÂ would be the dodgy sync leadÂ suppliedÂ with the kit but sync leads areÂ notoriousÂ for being useless at the best of times!
The images were mostly veryÂ functionalÂ but I did manage to take a quick one for my portfolio ( maybe !!) Â at the end of the day, I stopped the light down & shot at f5 to shorted the depth of field Â just enough to blur out the rear of the skull, giving me this ‘ Yorick ‘ image which I’m pleased with…..
I’ve have plenty of odd requests for photography over the years but this might be the winner. As with most of these things it came aboutÂ becauseÂ a few years ago I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of someone involved. Â In this case it was David Perry from 3D ARM . We have kept in touch over the years he’s a great guy and I really enjoyed catching up with him…
Its was great working with theÂ interestingÂ people at theÂ University andÂ I’m looking forward to seeing the finished article from 3D ARM.
