I am trying to make a low poly figure. How do I create two photos to build off of? Please and thank you.
You want, as close as possible, orthographic front and side views. Photography is inherently perspective view not orthographic. The work around for photography is to use a long lens (telephoto), and put the camera as far from the subject as reasonably possible. This will minimize the perspective distortion and give you useful photos for modeling references.
The other option is to go to a site like 3d.sk, who is in the business of taking these types of photos for CG artists and modelers.
