iPhone Closeups

iPhone Closeups

Any­one who wants to take close­up stereo pho­tos has to deal with the sev­er­al prob­lems. But apps like i3DMovieCam bring simul­ta­ne­ous stereo pho­tog­ra­phy to your iPhone. This opens up the world of small ani­mals, insects and mov­ing objects to every­day stereo photography.

A Restorer’s Journey

A Restorer’s Journey

Some­times you will get a glimpse of the indi­vid­ual his­to­ry of your trea­sure and know where it was stored, wether it was looked after or long for­got­ten, if the own­er was well sit­u­at­ed or not, etc. For me, these sto­ries are invalu­able. As a pas­sion­ate restor­er, I espe­cial­ly appre­ci­ate view­ers that have remained untouched since their last use. I care­ful­ly remove the dust of decades to reveal the orig­i­nal beau­ty of a stere­o­scope. Being the first one to do so feels almost like get­ting in touch with those who bought it a cen­tu­ry ago. I want to take you to one of those journeys.
