Smartphone Syncing — The Best of Two Worlds

Smartphone Syncing — The Best of Two Worlds

Crowd­ed places, ani­mals, wind or water — move­ment in gen­er­al is a No-Go if you’re tak­ing stereo pho­tos with your smart­phone. These are only some rea­sons why I start­ed work­ing on a solu­tion for sync­ing two smart­phones. After almost a year, I have a ful­ly func­tion­al set­up with two iPhones.

Short Stop in Barcelona

Short Stop in Barcelona

I always want­ed to vis­it Barcelona. So, dur­ing my vis­it at Foti­cos Col­lec­tion I took the chance to spend half a day in Barcelona on my way from Ger­many to Zaragoza and back. Because I only had a few hours I had to choose instead of just walk­ing around. I basi­cal­ly vis­it­ed the famous Sagra­da Família cathe­dral and La Ram­bla. All of these pho­tos were tak­en with two synced iPhones 11 Pro.

A trip through Spain in 3D

My Stereoview Box Set Collection and 3D Photography

My Stereoview Box Set Collection and 3D Photography

My stereopho­tog­ra­phy and stere­oview col­lec­tion are two sides of the same coin for me and have a com­mon ori­gin sto­ry. Trav­el back with me to May 2014 — Lon­don. A chance encounter on a canal boat. A ques­tion asked. An answer giv­en. My life… transformed.
