I took a picture of a crescent arch with scaffolding (apparently for maintenance) but can't post it for lack of "10 reputation." However the effect is simple, in that from the vantage point, the row of scaffolding directly ahead appears as a single line, but those on either side show more of the "grid" of scaffolding. Same effect would be with any series of parallel rows of objects photographed from a point in line with one of the rows.
The question has to do with achieving an effect wherein the picture shows all rows head on? One could take a series of photos in line with each row (perhaps with multiple lenses) and photoshop them into one picture, which is perhaps similar to what Google does for streetview (have not found a detailed explanation of their technique). However that could be tedious for an individual with a camera and a specific photo subject, especially if there were lots of rows.
The question is whether there is a kind of rolling (as in moving) or incremental method to blend a very large number of very narrow head-on views of the rows and spaces between them? In other words adding slices of the visual field in as one moves rtl or ltr.
Hope this makes some sense - easier to visualize with the photo.
