Being a natural material, each marble slab has its own unique characteristics that differentiate it from others by its tone, grain, blemishes, cracks, etc. Traditionally, to select the materials, the customers are visiting the manufacturer's warehouses in person, or the same manufacturer is sending or posting some poor quality pictures on the web. Because of these procedures, customers can only inspect the appearance of the first slab of the bundle they are going to buy, and they are not being able to verify all the pieces, slab by slab.


The problems of conventional photography

Applied to the natural stone industry, many factors are affecting the sharpness, quality and realism of the pictures taken with conventional cameras:  light reflections, human operator´s inexperience handling the camera, lighting variations due to different storage spaces, time of day when the picture is taken, etc. So, several photographs of the same slab, taken under different conditions, produce very different images with very different sharpness, quality and realism. It is therefore easy to understand the high number of complaints received in the companies because of non-compliance of the materials.
