Ka'u HS - Learning to Gigapan
Part 1 - Learning the basics
Richard Palmer (apapane
) taking GigaPan images.
Having seen them on the web, and
thinking it was a pretty cool piece of technology, I went up
to talk story with him about GigaPan and all that. By the time we had
finished chatting, it looked like my school could get a camera or 3 and
participate in conversations with other schools around the planet. Cool!
A few weeks passed, a few e-mails passed, and the cameras came!!!
Richard came over to the Big
Island from Oahu to teach us how to take pictures / stitch images /
upload images. That got our feet wet (ok, we only got splashed a little
taking some of our first pictures out at Punalu'u.
Here's our, "at School on a Saturday" lesson pictures...
Present and accounted for:
Steve Stephenson, Tyler Amaral (Tylera
), Leilani Desmond (Klutz
), and myself, Ted Brattstrom (zenpenguin
) with Richard Palmer (apapane)
|Unpacking, reading instructions, calculating the positions, setting up the camera on the mount.|
|Tweaking that which has to be tweaked!|
|Explaining how and why|
|Mr Stevenson gets some hands on experience.|
|<- Setting up the top and bottom levels to calibrate the Gigapan|
Taking the first set of images ->
Not an exciting one, inside my classroom as a demonstration.
|Now to go outside!!!|
|Using Richard's set up - a different camera / mount.|
And getting an image of part of the school. It's quiet because it is Saturday.
