I thought I'd invite national and international friends to join everyone at Windsor paying respects to Queen Elizabeth II, just after sunrise on the cold morning of Saturday 17th September 2022.
I thought I'd introduce you to stereoscopic daguerreotypes, one of the earliest forms of photography and stereoviews, and indeed, one of the most expensive and fragile too. You don't often come across them, but when you do, and you're lucky enough to see one of the beautifully tinted ones, you'll stop in your tracks in awe! They really are the jewels of stereoscopy.
I'm so fortunate to welcome Chris Sickels, aka Red Nose Studio. He's an Indiana-based artist who creates 3-D illustrations and stop-motion animations. I've asked Chris if he would introduce Displacement: A Stereographic Journey and explain his background in stereoscopy.
As a grand finale to The Stereoscopy Blog's way of celebrating Stereoscopy Day, we'd like to offer you a free download of the never-before-published book by Denis Pellerin: 'Henri Lefort: The Ultimate Entertainer.'
Since the QooCam EGO was released recently, I've been asked quite a few times how I think it compares to other compact digital stereo cameras, so here's a post to do exactly that, especially for Stereoscopy Day.
I'm very fortunate to welcome to the Stereoscopy Blog British artist Jim Naughten. He uses photography, stereoscopy and painting to explore historical and natural history subject matter in a beautiful and unique way. He's written something special for Stereoscopy Day to celebrate the art, explaining how he got into stereoscopy and how he uses it with his work.
I thought I'd quickly make a post about the QooCam EGO digital stereo 3-D camera, which was launched through a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year.
World Stereoscopy Day, being held on the 21st June every year, is an international celebration of stereoscopic 3-D. Whilst everyone is encouraged to join in and celebrate in their own way, the website has just released a list of some of the events being held across the world to mark the occasion.
The Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy have announced the first international Stereoscopy Day is to take place on June 21st 2022.
As a little way to celebrate the festive season I'm sharing some glass Verascope slides from the 1910s.
