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.
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.
It's the Stereoscopy Blog's 3rd birthday today, so I thought I'd send a sneak preview of some amateur stereos from a collection I'm going to post about in a few months time as a thank you for all the amazing support.
This is the video I shared during the 'A Celebration of Stereoscopic 3D - Part the Second' event. It's a very quick (literally) guide about how to get started in analogue stereo photography, which is much more difficult now than it used to be. I am definitely no Stan White, I just really enjoy analogue photography, but I hope the video might inspire some future Stan Whites to pick up analogue cameras and get shooting.
Photo historians, researchers, artists, curators, collectors and innovators have once again been invited to talk about their passion to explore various aspects of stereoscopy at this event.
A new free online event has been announced for the 21st and 22nd November 2020: 'A Celebration of Stereoscopic 3D'. Photo historians, artists, curators, collectors and photo dealers will be giving talks to explore various aspects of stereoscopy.
These stereoviews were in a set of 15 which were originally made in France in the 1910s. The mounts show they were taken by a photographer with a studio in Paris and the clothing style shows French military uniforms as well as French fashion typical of the era. We're going to examine them and see what information we can find.
