Translucent stereoscopic symmetry
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 the mirror image of the left and the right eye images, and then combine them to produce composite images for each eye. Image one is the composite of the original image for the left eye with the mirror image for the right eye. Image two is the original image for the right eye with the mirror image of the left eye’s image. I then use the 3DSteroidPro application to recombine the two composite images into a single parallel view stereoscopic image.
Using this approach not only adds an element of symmetry not present in the subject that was originally photographed, but adds an element of translucent stereoscopic symmetry to the depiction of the subject. This approach has worked quite well working with images of modern abstract sculptures, and also with architectural features like staircases.

I’ve been creating stereoscopic images for a little over 2 years. I started by doing an anaglyptic images but changed over to “parallel view” (side by side) display, as a parallel view full color visual display is more appealing for some of the subject matter that I shoot stereoscopically, especially flowers. I guess you could call me a “cha cha” stereo photographer. I take a shot with my DSLR, take a step to the left, and take the other stereoscopic shot.
I’m a retired software developer. I now devote myself exclusively to my photographic interests, which include stereoscopy, infrared photography, macro photography, street/event photography, and zoo photography.
