The Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy have announced the first international Stereoscopy Day is to take place on June 21st 2022.
An Easter-themed post as Denis Pellerin researches an unusual stereoview of a very British tradition: 'Egg Rolling at Preston'. You can still join in today, if you're so inclined!
We're very fortunate to welcome amazing British artist and portrait painter Michael Taylor RP to the Stereoscopy Blog. I've been astounded by his artworks in whichever medium he chooses, and was stunned to learn how he uses stereoscopy both as an aid to his art and as an art form in itself. I asked Michael if he would write an article and I'm really honoured to share it with you now. He not only discusses his use of stereoscopy and shares examples of his beautiful works of art, but also gives tips and a brief tutorial!
We welcome back to the Stereoscopy Blog photo historian Denis Pellerin. In this post he devotes his incredible and thorough research to French provision merchant and publisher of stereoscopic postcards Julien Damoy. Despite his stereoscopic postcards being well known, very little was previously understood about the publisher himself. Denis has once again dug deep in his research (and spent a fortune on postcards!) to rediscover Damoy.
I'm excited to welcome to the Stereoscopy Blog John Furlong. In his first post, he explains how he has used a Polaroid passport camera to take stereoviews with 120 and expired instant film.
I thought I'd make a post about the different ways to make stereoviews with a single lens. You don't need specialist equipment to take 3D photos, you can use almost any camera!
I thought I'd put together a list of quick pointers for taking better stereos. It's not exhaustive, but hopefully it's enough to get you started.
I'm pleased to welcome back to the Stereoscopy Blog Norwegian photographer and artist Ida Marie. In this post she will share with you her experiences of processing the first film from her Sputnik camera. Thank you so much Ida Marie, I'm sure you will inspire people to dust-off or discover analogue stereo cameras and enjoy some darkroom adventures!
I'm so happy to welcome to The Stereoscopy Blog my friend Thomas Asch. In his first blog post he gives an illustrated field review of the GoPro Dual HERO System, an affordable stereo camera rig.
As a little way to celebrate the festive season I'm sharing some glass Verascope slides from the 1910s.
