This Palmer Amaranth plant was brought in by Bruce Ackley from the OSU Weed Management program. Bruce grows specimen plants for herbicide research and produces a lot of eLearning material for agricultural education (including videos of plant growth, etc.).
This is one of our first attempts at scanning a live plant. The subject bounced around a lot during shooting which added to the overall noise. Next time we will work on stabalizing the subject.
Scanned with 4 Canon EOS cameras with the subject on a turn table. Processed with Agisoft Photoscan.
