Maybe you’ve already shot your first ‘cha cha’ stereo photos, combined them into stereo pairs for parallel or cross viewing, or made anaglyphs. Hopefully you are enjoying this new medium. However, exploring new techniques can sometimes be overwhelming. Perhaps you have seen a stereo photo or style that you really like and would like to attempt, but are not sure how to achieve it in your own edits. Or you may want to figure out why a particular stereo-photograph isn’t very comfortable to view. Sometimes you may just be looking for additional resources to further expand your photography.
Beyond the basic concepts mentioned on the parent page, there are several aspects for specific purposes that may be taken into consideration when taking and editing stereo photos because they may be important depending on the context. But some of these apply to literally every single stereo photo you will ever take, for example the stereo window, proper alignment and the baseline.
We would love for people to enjoy stereo photography and become a permanent part of the community. We are here to offer support for all enthusiasts, especially those who are new, by providing the following two resources.
The aim of this section is to share tutorials for the above mentioned aspects that are easily accessible right here, without having to navigate through the blog. Links to all the tutorial posts will be listed here soon as they go live.
- Stereo photography to go — from start to finish in 3 minutes
- How To Free View Stereoscopic Pairs
- Getting the Right Depth in 3D Photography
- Stereo Window basics
We believe that no tutorial can replace individual feedback from people who have been taking stereo photos for a long time. We would like it make it convenient for you to discuss your images and get all the answers you want about a specific image, without having to upload them on a public forum.
Just send your stereo photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is where you can ask your specific questions or receive general feedback. Please feel to ask our support team for help with anything concerning taking and editing stereo photos. We know from personal experience that it is always helpful to get a second opinion.
We do not aim to replace any existing ways of help that are already provided throughout the community, for example peer-to-peer interaction through Instagram comments, and we know that there are other blogs that offer direct help, too. This is just meant to be an additional resource to receive feedback. By interacting with the entire panel, you can receive multiple tips and suggestions on how to troubleshoot, so you can choose which method works best for you. Get to know more about the people on the support panel, here.
