On the Road to Precision Anthropomorphic Photography

Well, it’s been two days since I put out my appeal to software engineers and inventors to provide a software or hardware solution for high resolution,
real-time mirror imaging. …And I’ve heard nothing. So, I’m going to have to make this into a project.

When you can see what you are doing in real time, you see that the slightest change of position, like a 2 degree rotation or pitch or sway causes huge changes in the images.

Every slight move causes new anthropomorphic creatures to appear and just as quickly, disappear. So the trick is to be able to see what you are doing
so you can precisely align the images. The crappy telephone app does this, but doesn’t produce a high res image.

So, today I tried shooting with both cameras at once, so that what I was seeing on the phone would be approximated by the real camera.
The results are promising. All these pictures came from a single root ball. But I need to build better hardware!

    Make it too easy, it won’t be fun. If there were an app for cubism think about how Picasso would have felt. The first photo looks like one of your early drawings of a face.

      I found a couple of “cubism” apps at the app store!

      Never mind the rain is melting it too fast now, another fleeting moment. Hope you and Weezie got a walk in, this AM.

        Thanks for trying. It was another late night working for a presentation to a client that is coming up in a couple of hours today. This work thing is messing with my opportunities to enjoy the tiny bit of snow we’ve had this year. …and I’ve been wanting to do a “snowball” (rootball) post!
