VSC Meeting, January 2023

Sunday, January 8th 2023, 2pm EST / 8pm CET

Hap­py New Year! For the first meet­ing of 2023 we will have one pre­sen­ta­tion and plen­ty of time for our community.

Katya will show us some extra­or­di­nary slides pro­duced in the Sovi­et Bloc dur­ing the 1970s. 

We will also have a Show & Tell sec­tion in which every­one is invit­ed to share a trea­sured 3D item or pho­to they’re excit­ed about. So don’t for­get to bring some­thing with you — noth­ing is too ordi­nary to share it with us!

For the last part of our meet­ing we will take some time to intro­duce some­one from our community.

We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing you on Sunday!

(If you can’t make it, we want to let you know the top­ic of our next Stereo Chal­lenge. It’s HOMETOWN. As always, you can sub­mit up to two images to contact@vsc3d.com.)


A Magic Land Through a Stereoscope: My Stereomat Collection

Katya Nek­lyu­do­va

When I was a kid I had a set of stereo slides, and they were among my most trea­sured pos­ses­sions. Each card con­tained six stereo pairs fea­tur­ing a sto­ry; you had to start from the bot­tom and grad­u­al­ly go up. Pro­duced by Stere­o­mat in the 1970s, this type of reel is main­ly unknown to peo­ple that grew up out­side of the Sovi­et Bloc. A few years ago, when revis­it­ing my slides, I was amazed by the out­stand­ing lev­el of stereo mas­tery of these images, their inven­tive­ness, and their pro­found under­stand­ing of the sense of depth. I am pleased to present some of the extra­or­di­nary 3D slides from my collection.


Show & Tell

fea­tur­ing you!

Dur­ing our Show & Tell, every­one can show a per­son­al 3D item. This can be a trea­sure of your col­lec­tion, a stereo pho­to, or any­thing 3D relat­ed. We can’t wait to see you and your cool stuff! You don’t need to tell us in advance if or what you want to show, just come along!


In-Depth Socializing

fea­tur­ing you!

The advan­tage of a vir­tu­al com­mu­ni­ty is that we can gath­er online, no mat­ter where we’re from. But we don’t have the chance to social­ize in per­son. That’s why we have a sec­tion called „In-Depth Social­iz­ing“ to get to know each oth­er a bit bet­ter.
Any­body who feels up to it is invit­ed to intro­duce them­selves: When and how did you encounter stere­oscopy? What are you most inter­est­ed in? Tak­ing pho­tos, col­lect­ing or dis­cov­er­ing new 3D trends? But also: What do you do besides stere­oscopy? Who is the per­son behind the stereo cam­era?
We’ll pre­pare a few easy ice break­ers to start with and are look­ing for­ward to your stories.
