Animatable Wigglegram (9 frames) — sweep the mouse from side to side to view 3D effect
at the Tenjyuan Garden (天授庵), Kyoto Japan
I shot more than 3,500 frames today — 70 gigabytes of raw data — for about 470 potential wigglegrams. Above is one.
These two ladies from Osaka had wonderful kimono and wonderful smiles. I didn't want to impose on them much, so set up the shot and took it within seconds; despite the rush, I'm happy enough with the result.
I actually had 17 frames in the sequence, but the marginal improvement in appearance is not worth double the bandwidth, so I'm using every other frame.
My shooting technique has a long way to go, but what I really need is a rig with 10 full-frame SLRs, each sporting a 24mm f/1.4 lens, so that I can have all 10 frames taken at once. I find that movement in the scene as one wiggles from side to side is distracting, and makes it feel more like a very short video clip instead of “being there”.
I thought about perhaps using a bunch of GoPros, but I want a big (e.g. f/1.4) aperture for this.
Don't know where this will go, but it's fun (though today, at least, exhausting).
