In this paper we research the influence of background subtraction on photogrammetry pipeline when creating 3D print ready human body data. Background subtraction is a technique in image processing where image background is removed from the image and only foreground is left for further processing. The goal of the paper is to assess whether background subtraction could influence positively or negatively the photogrammetric processing of photographs. The research is aimed at the freely available software that natively does not support background subtraction, but also does not forbid the use of background subtraction. We aim to find out whether the software could benefit from adding background subtraction algorithms into their processing pipelines.
