As for the tutorial maybe it should be explained in just a few simple picture.  a picture showing the photographer

  • taking a picture forming a circle but also highlights some overlap.  

A second image would encourage taking pictures of the subject from different elevations and angles and lastly a picture showing ideal subjects that

  • don't have high specularity or reflective values.  

We could also include some pointers for better shots such as: Take pictures that

  • don't include cast shadows.

  • If possible try to take pictures on a overcast day.  

If the images are indoors try to control whatever the light source is so there is minimal shadow.  If you are fortunate enough to

This will reduce glare and bring up the contrast of your subject.  One more thing to note is I have found that the shorter the lens the less barrel distortion.  If you use a Canon dslr camera a great lense to use would be Canons 40 mm pancake lens.  A

  • mono pole

works great if you are in the field because you don't need to lug or setup a tripod to stabilize your shots plus with a tripod its difficult to properly space your shots around your subject
