VSC Meeting, June 2021
Sunday, June 6th 2021 at 2:00 pm EDT / 18:00 GMT / 8:00 pm CEST
We have some fun and informative presentations in store for you! Come hang with your fellow 3D enthusiasts for a little while and enjoy some wonderful iPhone stereo photography, 3D slicing and View-Master nostalgia.
Stereo Photographer Spotlight
Stereos with an iPhone
All of my photos are taken and processed with an iPhone and various apps. I’ve tried to take a wide range of photos including landscapes, closeups, and abstract objects, however I especially enjoy stereo photos of clouds, and large structures, such as bridges and power pylons. I normally employ the side step or “cha cha” method, but with some strict guidelines to get a balanced photo. For landscape photos, I use the burst feature on the iPhone while moving at high speeds. This method creates a flat background and a miniature look to the photo and eliminates much of the unwanted movement between shots, hence fewer rivalries.
Stereo Photography Tutorial
3D Slices & Shapes
Learn how to sp(l)ice up your stereos with some artful 3D shapes in this headache-free tutorial! All you need is a stereophoto and a graphics program with layers, such as the free online Photopea. For example, with this stereo self-portrait, I am attempting to viscerally convey how my new reading glasses (my first ever) make my head feel!
Stereoscopic History & Collecting
Collecting View-Master: Nostalgia, Semiotics & Weird Stuff
From the 1940s until the early 2000s, View-Master was the way in which most Americans — and many people around the world — were introduced to 3D images. Collector Rebecca Kilbreath will provide a brief overview of View-Master, share 2D images pulled from her extensive collection of reels, and dive into key areas of View-Master content and collecting. It’ll be a mix of nostalgia, semiotics and weird stuff.
