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 firstname.lastname@example.org.)
A Magic Land Through a Stereoscope: My Stereomat Collection
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
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!
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.
