Deep Clouds

Deep Clouds

The fol­low­ing col­lec­tion is a small sam­ple of my favorite cloud stereo pho­tos from the last few years while fly­ing over Europe and the South­west­ern por­tion of the Unit­ed States.

The Brewster Stereoscope – its improvements and variations

The Brewster Stereoscope – its improvements and variations

The Brew­ster stere­o­scope was with­out doubt the sin­gu­lar most pop­u­lar design of stere­o­scope from 1851 until the 1930’s when new for­mats took over and dur­ing this time its basic design changed very lit­tle. Though, there soon was a broad vari­ety of improve­ments and elab­o­rate decorations.

Check out the fab­u­lous­ly crys­tal-clear ver­sion of Diego’s infor­ma­tive stereo pho­tog­ra­phy pre­sen­ta­tion of our last meet­ing! There were band­width issues dur­ing his pre­sen­ta­tion but now you can see all his 3D imagery clear­ly. And if you missed Dominik’s pin­hole stereo cam­era pro­duc­tion tuto­r­i­al or Pascal’s Tax­iphote talk, please check out those, too — great stuff!

How To Free View Stereoscopic Pairs

How To Free View Stereoscopic Pairs

The tech­nique how to free view varies a bit from per­son to per­son, and it is sim­ply dif­fi­cult to explain in words. Last but not least, free view­ing has some advan­tages, but is not nec­es­sary if you have a view­er. But with a lit­tle prac­tice you will expe­ri­ence a whole new dimen­sion of photography!

The Spirit of Nature

The Spirit of Nature

Carleen’s pho­tog­ra­phy reflects her ongo­ing pas­sion for nature, and the solid­i­ty and reas­sur­ance nature brings. See six of her most calm­ing and peace­ful stereo pho­tos here.

A stereo tour through Bremen

A stereo tour through Bremen

Bre­men is one of the 5 most pop­u­lar cities in Ger­many, prob­a­bly also because of their mar­itime his­to­ry and flair. I would like to take you on a lit­tle stereo tour to vis­it some of my favourite places. 

Le Taxiphote — the most famous French stereo viewer

Le Taxiphote — the most famous French stereo viewer

The Veras­cope and the Tax­iphote are two halves of an unbe­liev­able stereo devel­op­ment effort that went on for 40 years essen­tial­ly with­out any changes. The Tax­iphote was export­ed to and patent­ed in many coun­tries. All this serves as an exam­ple of how attrac­tive stere­oscopy was at that time, and also con­firms the qual­i­ty of the Tax­iphotes as a tech­ni­cal device. We can only guess at the pres­tige of hav­ing a Tax­iphote at that time.
