On this site you find some mod­ern stereopho­tos of var­i­ous mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty. I’m real­ly hap­py to have got­ten per­mis­sion to show them here. If pos­si­ble I’ve added a link to their own web­site or social media and I high­ly rec­om­mend to pay them a vis­it. Among them are also some stere­os I’ve tak­en myself. Unless oth­er­wise stat­ed all images are pro­vid­ed for par­al­lel viewing.

If you want to know more about how to view these images, take a look at View­ing meth­ods. For any­one who feels more com­fort­able by using a view­er the LSC Lite OWL is a good choice for view­ing par­al­lel stere­os on screen.

Prob­a­bly you’ll need to adjust the image size for a bet­ter view­ing expe­ri­ence. The short­cuts crtl + [+] and crtl + [-] work for most browsers. Crtl + 0 brings every­thing back to it’s orig­i­nal size. If you have a Mac use cmd instead of ctrl in these shortcuts.

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. But with base­lines this large (rang­ing between 5~100 Metres), there are mul­ti­ple things (clouds, peo­ple and mov­ing shad­ows, cast by clouds, or even the earth’s rota­tion) which make this type of stereo-pho­­tog­ra­­phy chal­leng­ing. But with some prac­tice a pho­tog­ra­ph­er can devel­op meth­ods to counter these phe­nom­e­na, and once you do, the results speak for themselves.

I start­ed tak­ing my own stereo­scop­ic images in mid-2020 when I first dis­cov­ered that free-view­ing stereo­scop­ic images is pos­si­ble. Since then, with every pho­to I take I always find an oppor­tu­ni­ty to take a sec­ond pho­to from a dif­fer­ent angle to cre­ate a stereo. While hik­ing I dis­cov­ered that increas­ing the dis­tance between the two images makes it pos­si­ble to see depth even in dis­tant objects like moun­tains, which oth­er­wise would have appeared flat. I use my Smart­phone Cam­era (Pix­el 4a) to take stere­os of just about any­thing, but my pre­ferred stereo sub­jects are moun­tains and land­scapes.

iPhone Closeups

Any­one who wants to take close­up stereo pho­tos has to deal with the fol­low­ing dilem­ma. Using a twin cam­era set­up sets a min­i­mum base­line that is still too large to achieve the right depth. Switch­ing to sequen­tial stereo pho­tos elim­i­nates this prob­lem but excludes pho­tos of mov­ing objects.

But sev­er­al apps like i3DMovieCam by the Japan­ese devel­op­er Masu­ji Suto make use of the pos­si­bil­i­ty to con­trol two of the back cam­eras of an iPhone simul­ta­ne­ous­ly. This also results in a fixed base­line, which is too small for stan­dard stereo pho­tos — but it’s exact­ly what we need for close­ups. Of course, you have to pay atten­tion to sev­er­al tech­ni­cal and artis­tic fac­tors (par­tial­ly described in Stereo pho­tog­ra­phy to go) but it opens up the world of small ani­mals, insects and mov­ing objects to every­day stereo photography.

Vancouver Island Secrets

The 6 stere­os you see here form a small rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the dif­fer­ent land­scapes on Van­cou­ver Island (Cana­da).  The first is Kin­sol Tres­tle, fin­ished after the con­clu­sion of WWI, which is one of the tallest wood­en rail­way bridges in the world.  Oth­er views include sail­boats docked near the Oak Bay Mari­na, the lit­tle sum­mer pools of the Kok­si­lah Riv­er, snow-cov­­ered trees atop the peak of Mount Wash­ing­ton, a selec­tion of bright trees in Mys­tic Vale near my house, and a sun­set snap of the south­ern beach of McNeill Bay.  You prob­a­bly won’t rec­og­nize any of these loca­tions unless you’re an islander like me, but I’m proud to live in a place with such var­ied nat­ur­al beau­ty!  Come vis­it some time!

My stereo-hob­­by is quick­ly approach­ing its 3rd birth­day, prov­ing once again how time flies!  I start­ed tak­ing stereo pho­tos when I was liv­ing in Ham­burg, Ger­many, and need­ed a per­son­al inter­est to pass the time.  Like many peo­ple I first encoun­tered the stereo process thanks to Dr. Bri­an May, and since then I’ve met many won­der­ful pho­tog­ra­phers and artists! I main­ly enjoy hyper­stere­os and pho­tos that can demon­strate the grandios­i­ty of my sub­jects.  Hav­ing returned to Cana­da, my main focus has been the nat­ur­al beau­ty and colour that sur­rounds me every day.  Any time I’m on a hike or camp­ing excur­sion I’m sure to snap a few pic­tures! It’s amaz­ing how much you can do with a smart­phone.  My only equip­ment cur­rent­ly is my trusty, old, cracked Sam­sung Note 8… the cam­era is great and that’s all that mat­ters!  Sequen­tial pho­tos do have a lim­it, but there’s enough for me to work with for now!


Bugging Out!

I have always been fas­ci­nat­ed by ani­mals and since I’m able to take macro pho­tos, insects have become my favorite stereo subjects.

I did not become inter­est­ed in pho­tog­ra­phy until I read ‘Queen in 3D’ by Dr. Bri­an Harold May in 2019. That’s when I began to take stere­os pho­tos on my own. With my smart­phone (Huawei P30 Pro), I start­ed to take macro stere­os of ani­mals (espe­cial­ly insects) and flow­ers. My equip­ment is my smart­phone, a self made cata­diop­tric rig and my Fuji­film Finepix Real 3D W1. I pri­mar­i­ly use my smart­phone to take stere­os, even though it takes a bit longer to take pho­tos of insects. I have a lot of fun tak­ing stereo pho­tos and I’m always look­ing for new oppor­tu­ni­ties.

Space handpainting

The fol­low­ing six images show some of my ’space hand­paint­ings’ that were cre­at­ed using the 3D paint­ing app Blender. I used to export them as a video and let the vis­i­tor ‘fly’ through my lit­tle paint­ed worlds. More recent­ly I’ve tried export­ing them as stereo­scop­ic pairs to enable vis­i­tors to watch them in real 3D. These are the first results.

I learned Com­put­er Ani­ma­tion at col­lege and start­ed my career work­ing for the film indus­try in Los Ange­les. I worked sev­er­al big shows and then moved to New Zealand for for the Lord of Rings com­pa­ny, and worked on films such as King Kong, Avatar, Plan­et of Apes and more. I was in the lighting/rendering depart­ment to make com­put­er gen­er­at­ed images look real — to fit in with real pho­tog­ra­phy. 
Now I am a free­lance artist and run­ning a tutor­ing busi­ness. I spend a lot of time for mak­ing real­is­tic images, but now I am more into illus­tra­tion images. I use Blender soft­ware to cre­ate 3D illus­tra­tions. My style is sim­ple, I believe emp­ty space encour­ages people’s imag­i­na­tions.
