GigaPan inside the Classroom!

5 Dec

After trying the GigaPan last week outdoors in the park, we decided for this week we would use it inside of the classroom! We started the day off working on storyboards (which will be featured in a separate post). The storyboards illustrated a typical day at school. What we enjoy as well as what we dislike. How do you reconcile the things you wish to do, with the things you don’t like to? The PGH crew talked about why they enjoyed certain topics in school, and certain activities more than others.

Towards the end of the class, we had time to work on some large scale paintings and ideas. The students spread out with large paper and cardboard and got to work. Meanwhile, the gigapan happily shot away capturing each bit of it.

The button pusher that had been disconnected for the previous week was again connected. At least, at first…  Somehow the mystery of the faulty button pusher continued and stopped working mid-photo taking. Luckily, I have perfectly capable fingers to help the robot out! Working together with this genius robot, we bring you these two GigaPans.

Isn’t it silly sometimes the way we are collaged within the GigaPan. When posing for the robot, you can choose to stand still, or purposefully move about so as to appear in multiple frames of the same photo. Sometimes I direct the students where to stand, and other times its a free for all of how many times they can get into the same photo. I try to let them know when they appear or not in the frame. We help each other set up the shot and its boundaries.

Here are some close up shots used for the overall stitch:
