A strange couple, a Greylag goose and a Canada goose

I saw this stange couple, a Greylag goose (Anser anser) and a Canada goose (Branta canadensis) at birdlake Angarnssjöängen on mars 22. I have not seen them afterwards, maybe they realised that they where not a perfect match. When I observed them they swam close together. After eating simultaneously for a while they tried to […]

The fact that the spring is a couple of weeks early this year have made me start looking for snakes earlier than usual. Found this common European adder (Vipera berus) or Huggorm on mars 14.

Cross eyed stereo, butterfly wing scales

Usually I photograph butterfly scales with the intention to make a beautiful image. This time I wanted to have a photo with a different approach. This is a small part of a butterfly wing with some damage. A few scales have fallen off entirely, leaving a part of the wing without any scales. Two dislodged […]

I have just added a section about visualization from one single stack of photos

A picture can sometimes be difficult to interpret. What is it I am looking at, what part of the subject in the picture is closest to me and what parts are further away? There are methods like this rocking GIF that can be used for better visualisation of a single stack of photos.  Read more […]

Now on line: Photogrammetry step 5 – using stacked pictures

Photogrammetry makes it possible to store, view and share information about a subject in 3D. But the technique has some limitations. One is that you need sharp photos of the subject you want to make a 3D model of. In macro photography the shallow depth of field can therefore be a problem. One time consuming […]
