Stereoscopic Trip to Asunción

Stereoscopic Trip to Asunción

This gallery show­cas­es some stere­os I took in the cap­i­tal city of Paraguay: Asun­ción. Stere­oscopy offers a whole new per­spec­tive to look at our sur­round­ings, in depth and in detail. These were tak­en with a smart­phone using the burst mode fea­ture to take sequen­tial Left and Right images. I hope you enjoy this lit­tle tour pf my hometown!

VSC Meeting, February 2022

Come join our sec­ond meet­ing in 2022! We will cov­er a broad vari­ety of top­ics: vin­tage stere­oview box sets, mod­ern stereo pho­tos from Paraguay and first-hand infor­ma­tion about the world’s biggest stereo event. Isn’t it just awe­some how mul­ti-facetted stere­oscopy is?

We will fea­ture Felix Schlicht from Ger­many in a Pho­tog­ra­ph­er spot­light and then have a com­mu­ni­ty slide show. There­fore we ask you to send us up to 6 of your stereo pho­tos. Read the post for more details. Join us on Sun­day, Jan­u­ary 9th at 2:00 pm EDT / 18:00 GMT / 8:00 pm CEST

A view behind the curtain of StereoPhoto Maker

StereoPho­to Mak­er, a soft­ware devel­oped by the Japan­ese stereo pho­tog­ra­ph­er Masu­ji Suto, made things a lot eas­i­er for dig­i­tal stereo pho­tog­ra­phy. Believe it or not, he is not a pro­fes­sion­al soft­ware devel­op­er! Like most of us, Masu­ji is just pas­sion­ate about stere­oscopy and is hap­py to help the com­mu­ni­ty with his soft­ware devel­op­ing skills. Curi­ous about him? We met him for an interview.

A Trip to the Underworld

A Trip to the Underworld

Ladies and Gen­tle­men, please fas­ten your seat­belts because we are going to embark on a trip to the Under­world! This is a series of “Mod­ern Dia­b­leries” inspired by the orig­i­nal French Tis­sue stereo cards.
While most of the time the orig­i­nal Dia­b­leries were intend­ed to be scary, my approach and inter­pre­ta­tion on such Dev­il­ments is most­ly cheer­ful and entertaining.

The Depth of High Mountains

The Depth of High Mountains

Hik­ing offers many oppor­tu­ni­ties for land­scape stereo-pho­tog­ra­phy. Due to the diverse scale of the objects, from small, beau­ti­ful flow­ers, to trees, to entire moun­tain regions it is pos­si­ble to take a large vari­ety of stereo-pho­tos. My favourite stere­os are the hyper­stere­os of mountains.

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.
