Photography trick..

Figured I'd show my newest addition,
I have a photography company that shoots interiors of yachts, and have now expanded to shooting Object VR..
This is my first success, a Harken 57c block..

Click and drag to look around...

Let me know what you think !

If you know anyone that could use something like this to market a product online, let me know.. the money will probably end up being spent on more sailboat parts anyway

Harken Block number 57c

Yeah, but you can only go left and right, not up and down... QTVR will allow you to pan in all four directions.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

It is convenient. I think some improvements to lighting would have helped. You seem to have spot lights(?) on right and left which create bright spots on metal, and also very high contrast, without midtones. To get midtones I had to turn the block about 45 degrees to lights - at which point midtones come through.
It would be great if brightness and contrast remained constant through the entire turn and midtones were visible. May be softer lights or lighting from more directions (or something as silly as a ring flash) would do it. *imho*

I did that type of display way back in 1998 on a commercial website to show off all sides of product. A group of UVA students had developed a process where they had a circular track for the camera and you put the product in the middle and took photos all around the track. They had developed software to then stitch the photos together and let you mouse over in any direction to show that side of the product. I always thought it was a really neat idea and overcame a lot of the difficulties on line buying presents since you can't inspect the product like in real life.
The major downside is the cost to implement vs. simply taking a single photo or grabbing a mfr. photo for a site.

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

Need a much bigger track setup... and some tetradoxin so they don't move during the photography process.
