Hello,
I am trying to shoot small objects at home, like sized like mushrooms or smaller. My process is as follow: I am going around the object with camera and holding shutter to capture lot of images, but it is not ideal.

Is it possible to put the camera on stativ, shoot images and rotate an object? But then the background is same, as far as I understand it needs some reference points. Can I put some markers while rotating an object to have reference points and use some green background for the tiny object?

Will this work? Or do you have any better ideas, how to automatize shooting of small objects to preserve good visual quality?

Thanks

Hello sherwood,

yes you can do that with Agisoft PhotoScan, look for turntable solution in this forum.

Here is an old tutorial for that:

And here you find a new feature discription for version 1.4:

Generally fill your photos as much as you can with your object, as don't do this is often a beginner mistake.
