3D Images
Experiments in 3-Dimensional Photography



 
As a fun sidebar to building and photographing scale models, I've experimented with photographing my models (and other things) as 3-Dimensional images. The process involves taking two photographs of a subject, with one image representing the view through the left eye and the other representing the view through the right eye. Each image is then viewed separately through each eye, giving the image a natural appearing perspective and depth.

These pages include two basic types of 3D images:
 
Stereo Pairs

Two distinct and separate images are viewed with each eye focusing on a single image. The eyes must cross to correctly achieve the 3D effect. This is actually easier than it sounds and the effect can be impressive because there's no altering of the original colors.


 
Stereo Anaglyphs

The two images are each tinted, red for the left eye and blue for the right and then overlapped into a single image. Red/blue "3D Glasses" are required for the proper viewing of these images.
