I was very kindly given a set of six stereoviews of Stamford, Lincolnshire, England. As soon as I saw them I felt inspired to research and retrace the photographer's footsteps, setting off on a mission in the rain very early the following day, despite not exactly being on Stamford's doorstep or familiar with the town.

Kosmo Foto recently had a Kickstarter campaign for their Agent Shadow 400 ASA black and white 35mm film and I was lucky enough to be able to test some before it is released. I decided to use my current favourite 35mm stereo camera, a Belplasca, and share the results.

To celebrate two years of The Stereoscopy Blog we're going to have a play with StereoPhoto Maker and make a panning stereoview video; these work really well on wide landscape stereoviews and are ideal for use on smartphones and social media. I'm writing it step-by-step and as there are so many steps involved you may want to bring a picnic/sleeping blanket for this one!
Everyone experiences, at least once in their professional life, some memorable occasion, some momentous event that changes, helps or furthers their career. For the amateur stereo photographer Mr. Spencer in our story, this red-letter day took place on May 10th 1897.
