3D Photography - Captured Reality Input

3D Photography - Captured Reality Input

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Henry Reichhold


In this course you will learn the art of creating high definition 3D with a standard digital camera. This new technology is explored in three main parts: capture, editing and output. You will leave the course with a good understanding of the techniques involved in creating 3D objects from photogrammetry. Plus, you will get a real insight into the amazing creative potential of this emerging technology. No prior knowledge of 3d software or photography is required.

Topics covered


Capturing 3D can be achieved with any digital camera (this could be a phone, compact or DSLR camera). You will learn the techniques required to successfully capture the 2D data needed to create a 3D object.


The course will offer you a simple 3D workflow with Autodesk packages, Momento and Meshmixer (all free to download) and a quick guide to image preparation in Photoshop. You will process the original images on cloud-based servers and then refine the outcome to make it print ready.


You will be introduced to a variety of 3D printers and have the opportunity to 3D print . This will include ‘fixing’ the print to make it print (watertight) ready using cloud based server applications. We will also look at post printing clean up techniques.

We will visit My Mini Factory in order to provide you with an understanding of how this new technology is helping preserve artefacts with projects such as ‘Scan The World’.

Entry requirements: None


Please note: This course is for students aged 18 and older
