This is an update on my behalf regarding my helmet project. I used baby powder shaken on my photographic subject and blew away the residu, making features this way. I made about 900 pictures in 5 loops in an amateur studio setting. Using two lamps and the subject placed in a white tent. I used a homemade rotating plateau, for 360 degrees imagery. Images came out ok, could always be better. Still some flash on the object surface. I run an alignment and got a large component, about 850 images or so. Not bad.
Because I was not very satisfied with the quality of the pictures, I decided to take some new another day. This time I tried outside in daylight in the white tent, but I cleared the baby powder of the subject so the original surface appeared. Smooth grey semi gloss single color. I took another 900 pictures en run RC alignment again. I got 45 components and my biggest one was 125.
could this really be the baby powder making features for better alignment?
