A recent unearthing of one of the earliest images of a family visiting Stonehenge, in stereoscopic 3-D, has lead to the rediscovery of an eminent family of photographers and artists from Salisbury. We explore the history of Henry Brooks, his photographic studio and his family.
I thought it'd be nice to share my small collection of glass positives taken in the Alps in the early 1900s, with a Jules Richard Verascope camera.
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.
The article 'What is Stereoscopy and Why is it Important to Photography Today?' is now available.
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.
The National Stereoscopic Association has announced that this year's Virtual 3D-Con 2021 will take place on the 12th - 15th August.
A written guide about how to get started in stereo film photography, from choosing your camera and film to processing your results. Stereoscopic analogue 3D heaven ❤
Rachel Nordstrom from the University of St Andrews, Scotland, Victor Flores, from Universidade Lusófona de Humanidades e Tecnologias, Lisbon, Portugal, Denis Pellerin and Rebecca Sharpe, from the London Stereoscopic Archive, England, have once again joined forces to organise this free online Zoom event which is meant to be a celebration of Stereoscopic 3D. They have invited photo historians, researchers, artists, curators, collectors and innovators to talk about their passion to explore various aspects of stereoscopy.
I set about scanning and digitally cleaning a little collection of unknown glass negative stereoviews, with a nice surprise!!
