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!

3D Trends

Converting 2D to 3D using LeiaPix + StereoPhoto Maker

Klara Wang

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.

Leaf Challenge

VSC Mem­bers

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 contact@vsc3d.com. 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.


Christmas Raffle

fea­tur­ing you.… maybe…

Gimme the prize! We’ve talked so much about our chal­lenges and the raf­fle com­ing up in the Decem­ber meet­ing. And now we can final­ly show you the prizes gift­ed by Oczkostereo.eu.

Thanks a lot to Dominik Oczkows­ki for this gen­er­ous dona­tion! We real­ly appre­ci­ate it and we’re sure the win­ners will do so too! 

With this stere­o­scope you can view stereo­scop­ic images on dif­fer­ent medi­ums like ana­logue slide mounts or a smartphone.

This is a stere­o­scope for stereo cards and smart­phones. It’s made out of cardboard.

A small Lorgnette-style hand­held view­er. It lets you view stereo cards and stereo images on your smartphone.
