I was out diving yesterday in San Diego on the Marissa and some of the other divers were really interested in the photogrammetry projects I’m currently working on. It got me to thinking that maybe I should hold a class / workshop on photogrammetry here in Southern California.
Before I go too far down the rabbit hole, I’d like to determine if there is enough demand for it.
The class would be in-person and would likely be three days long and would include two dives. I would probably limit the class to four participants (especially in the first few sessions) to ensure a lot of interactivity and discussion.
Day 1 would be lecture and would include photogrammetry basics, getting the software installed and running (trial license), photogrammetry build process and then build a sample model from a land-based project.
Day 2 would be a boat day (likely San Diego on the Marissa) with two dives to practice photography
Day 3 would be building models of the previous day and also tips / tricks with the software
I would need to charge people a fee but I’m not looking to make a living out of it.
Class prerequisites would be a working underwater camera setup (I have some equipment I can lend people if needed), experience taking underwater photos, and a laptop running Mac, Linux, or Microsoft.
So, my question is would people want to attend the class? Is there enough interest in learning photogrammetry from a “hands-on” perspective. I feel like I have enough experience at this point to really help accelerate other people who would like to get into this area of photography.
If there is enough demand, I’ll start working on planning and let people know.
