This is an instructable on how to use a portable 3D scanning rig for capturing volumetric scenes, in a bit of a blend between photography and video. For 3D scanning of someone's head, check out this instructable. And for 3D scanning small objects, check out this one. Oh, and for what to do with your 3D scene scans, check out my lab's main work, volumetric printing.
And, if you happen to be in Hong Kong or Brooklyn let me know - sometimes a group of us volumetric digitizers go out and capture the souls of the locals.
