What kind of entertainment would you have as a Soviet kid growing up in the 1980s? A couple of dolls, clothes; metallic constructor sets, the vinyl recordings of children’s stories; some cassettes with popular Russian songs, and a bunch of filmstrips. These things were in almost everyone’s possession – at least, that’s how I remember my friend’s toys. However, I had something very special – a set of stereo cards, along with a simple stereoscope that looked like binoculars.

This tutorial is based on my personal workflow for creating side-by-side stereos and includes several apps for taking, aligning, combining, and post-processing stereophotos. From shot to post, all files stay entirely on the smartphone. Depending on the occasion I slightly modify my workflow by adding, replacing, or skipping particular steps. But on average the process really comes down to 3 minutes to get a finished side-by-side stereophoto.
This gallery is a small representation of the different landscapes on Vancouver Island (Canada). You probably won’t recognize any of these locations unless you’re an islander like me, but I’m proud to live in a place with such varied natural beauty! Come visit some time!
Hey, 3D friends! Please join us for our first anniversary this coming Sunday, August 8th. We’ll share a fun, short 6‑scene 3D drama created by Thomas Asch and inspired by “A Rake’s Progress” by William Hogarth. Then we’ll open it up to all of you, our community members, to share a treasured 3D item or photo you’re excited about during our popular Show & Tell segment. Can’t wait to see your faces and your cool stuff this coming Sunday at 2:00 pm EDT / 19:00 GMT / 8:00 pm CET. Our meetings are always free — just register if you haven’t already.
