Ready for a journey into deep space? Space and galaxies have always fascinated me, so when the book Cosmic Clouds 3D by David Eicher and Brian May was released in 2020, I got the idea of converting my traditional space paintings into 3D by using a depthmap. But I realised that the result was far from satisfying. So I switched from canvas to digital artwork, which has the advantage of being easier to convert into a stereoscopic drawing than a traditional one.
Ready for a journey into deep space? Then why not create your own universe by drawing it? Space and galaxies have always fascinated me and when I started painting some years ago I created several galaxies in the classical way — in 2D on canvas. A little later, I got the idea of converting my paintings into 3D. Finally, I switched from canvas to digital artwork.
The work being displayed in this gallery I call double exposure stereoscopic images. I start with a stereoscopic image in side by side “parallel view” format and process the images for the left and the right eye separately. I use an image editor to produce …
I present you a series of modern stereo cards, inspired by the Victorian way of depicting reality: Stereoscopic photography. I’ve been inspired and fascinated by the atmosphere of old stereoscopic cards, which were, in their time, the most realistic way to immortalize and then relive the memories driven by the sight of a particular scene. I show you how to create your own modern stereo card in 10 minutes!
Michael Burr was one of the most prolific photographers of staged genre stereoviews in the Victorian era. Like most photographers Burr had his favourite models who make regular appearances in his tableaux. One of them, and perhaps the most relevant to readers of this article, appeared as the wife of a stereograph enthusiast who, while her husband is occupied in scrutinising the latest offerings from the travelling stereo salesman, takes the opportunity to flirt with the top-hatted purveyor of 3D delights.
Once becoming a diver in 2004, it was only a matter of time before I took my love of stereo photography beneath the waves. When diving, you are never sure exactly what you will find, but inevitably something wonderful appears before you. Don’t miss these stunning underwater 3D photos!
What to do in 2020, these difficult times for passionate collectors? Read about Thomas Asch’s newest acquisition, get some historical background information and look at the different kinds of stereoscopic Tissues.
Unlike painting, in sculpture, the perception of spatial depth may be the most important thing to consider. The relationship of each of the elements distributed in the space is the real challenge to take into account in creating sculpture. In the vast majority of cases, color is dispensed with to focus attention on three-dimensional shapes. In a traditional two-dimensional photograph of a sculpture that perception of depth is lost, and therefore two-dimensional photography is a very ineffective means to represent the spatial awareness of a sculpture.
