VSC Meeting, December 2022
Sunday, December 11th at 2:00 pm EST / 8:00 pm CET
Join our Christmas meeting on December 11! We will celebrate modern stereoscopy together in several ways.
First, we will have Klara Wang presenting about 2D to 3D conversions. She will show us some examples of this popular trend and demonstrate her standard workflow.
Then we will look once again at your amazing stereo photos that you have submitted for our fourth stereo challenge.
Finally, it’s raffle time… more details below!
We’re looking forward to seeing you next Sunday. Don’t forget some gingerbread and your Santa hat!
Converting 2D to 3D using LeiaPix + StereoPhoto Maker
A few months into my stereo journey, I started to discover that there exist stereos which were not taken on the spot, but rather converted from originally mono pics. The fact that it was possible to transform any standard pic into 3D instantly fascinated me, and I was more than keen to try it out myself. Through the help of several stereo pals on Instagram and lots of experimentation, I was finally able to default on a method that I felt the most comfortable with, which is what I’ll be demonstrating in my presentation.
Ever since I discovered this new way of creating stereos, I have been hooked ever since. There are too many pics in existence that would be amazing to view in 3D, but were obviously not taken as stereos at the time. Hence, I think the technology that we have today which allows us to do this conversion process is truly monumental to stereoscopy and photography enthusiasts alike.
Community Slide Show
For our last challenge of 2022 we’ve chosen the topic LEAF. You can submit up to two stereo images (parallel view) by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission Deadline is December 9!
If you have only participated in one of our Stereo Challenges so far, you should definitely submit one or two Leaf Stereo Photos. That’s because everyone who took part in at least two challenges will be part of our Christmas Raffle.
