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.
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.
We welcome back to the Blog, especially for Stereoscopy Day, photo historian Dr. Peter Blair. In this article he discusses a great passion of many 3-D photographers and collectors: going back to locations in Victorian stereoviews. He not only recreates the images over a century later, but he explores the understanding and appreciation of them.
I'm so pleased to welcome to the Blog my friend Andrew Lauren, from the US. I've often admired Andrew's stereoviews, which he's taken with one of his stereo rig setups, and eventually asked him if he'd like to write a post to explain the setup. Here it is, especially to celebrate Stereoscopy Day! Thank you so much Andrew!
I'm honoured to welcome to the Stereoscopy Blog my friend and US interdisciplinary lens-based artist Colleen Woolpert, especially for Stereoscopy Day! She explains how she got into stereoscopy and introduces her work.
Photo Historian Denis Pellerin returns to follow up a previous Blog post after discovering more images by the same photographer in Dury, France. This time, Denis actually takes us to northern France and brings the history of the village to the modern-day inhabitants, making new discoveries with their help.
In this post you'll find stereoviews taken by different stereo cameras /stereo rigs/ sequential stereo setups I've tried, with a brief description of the pros and cons of each. Happy Stereoscopy Day!
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.
