I discovered that I could create stereographic worlds using POLAROID SX-70 cameras in the 1984. Some were standard 3D images (like the STREET LIFE Series), but by staging unusual objects and materials found in the aging industrial area of lower Manhattan, various tableaus were created and slowly evolved in my studio. With the Polaroid SX-70 cameras, I recorded the various developments steroeoptically, creating over 50 tableau’s in a 3 year period.
I have been trying to capture the beauty of Scotland (my home country) and Wales (where I live now) in 3D. These landscapes proved a great way to learn how to make the most of the depth from single-lens cha-chas and with the limited baseline of the Fuji Finepix 3D W3. Of course, much credit must also go to my dog Punky, who provided a great focal point for many of my W3 landscapes.
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.
The canals of Bruges have connected the city to the sea for centuries. International merchants guaranteed wealth and prosperity. Bruges soon became one of the largest Hanse cities. Until today, the medieval buildings and structures of the 15th century remained mainly intact. UNESCO designated the entire city centre as a World Heritage site in 2000.
On my trip to Madeira, I took many stereo snapshots. The beautiful mountainous landscapes we walked through were well-suited for stereography. The snapshots presented here were taken with my two GoPro Hero8 Blacks and the GoPro Smart Remote. Using this setup, I could synchronize the cameras and adjust the stereo base.
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!
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.
