Breaking Bad cooking location To’Hajiilee Google Street View


Took a trip with my brother a few years ago (2014ish oh here is the post) to ABQ to see some breaking bad filming locations. around 2016 I happened to once again be in ABQ, this time with a 360 photo camera and free time so I decided to take some shots of the Breaking Bad cooking location.

I wanted to try to match a shot from the show and composite Walt, Jesse and the RV. I wanted to do something like this for some time and thought about the problems and possible best practices.  Matching a shot is tricky for a number of reasons some of the big ones being: matching the location of the camera, the lens of the camera and lighting. Say you found the precise location and height of the camera it still wont match perfectly because of the difference in lenses. As for the lighting, you could shoot at the same time of day as when they filmed but it’s a different day of the year from when they filmed so the sun will be in a different location. On top of all that they might digitally alter the background in post production and there is no way I can think of matching that outside of recreating that digital work.

So with that in mind finding the shot you would like to match I thought it would be best to use a nice wide shot and note the time of day when it was shot from the shadows. This was my first attempt at doing this, it’s not perfect but I think the end results were not that bad. I had posted this as a 360 photo back in 2016 but I had a database problem last year and lost that post so I’m now reposting it. This time I’m using Google Street view. Hopefully it’s not conceded a violation.

Photogrammetry: Cannon at Camp George West.

by DierveK


A photogrammetry scan from Camp George West in Golden Colorado. There was no editing in any external 3D program so another raw scan. I’m still getting my sea legs with photogrammetry and I think the results are better than my first photo scan of the smaller older cannon https://skfb.ly/68trH . Don’t know what type of cannon this is?

The Mood Gun

Over the past few months in the Modo forums there have been some incredibly talented artist who have been showing off the new MOP Boolean plugin. Seeing all the cool guns motivated me into joining in on the fun. So I mad this using the MOP Boolean plugin in Modo 11.1 and this is my entry into the MOP Boolean Gun Club.

For this gun the concept was simple. To make a smaller, sleeker, sexier and a little silly looking kind of a futuristic Walther PPK sized gun (granted it looks nothing like the PPK). Something that an assassin could use in say a futuristic Kill Bill 3. The Mood Gun is considerably dangerous yet none lethal. Various setting allow the user to alter or enhance the mood of a subject.
