VSC Meeting, March 2023

Sunday, March 12th at 3:00 pm EDT / 8:00 pm CET

We’re hap­py to have David Stark­man pre­sent­ing one item of his huge col­lec­tion: An Ives Kro­moskop, which was the device used to achieve this super­im­pos­tion and col­oriz­ing of the three black and white stereo­scop­ic glass plates com­pris­ing the “Kro­mo­gram”. 

Also, David Kuntz and Vanes­sa Grein will talk about their col­lab­o­ra­tion, describe some of their work­ing meth­ods, and of course, share many of their images which include their sig­na­ture neb­u­la scenes and many oth­er types of mul­ti-image composites.

Join us next Sunday!


The Ives Stereo Kromskop — one of the earliest color stereo processes

David Stark­man

Patent­ed Decem­ber 18, 1894, the Ives Krom­skop was one of the ear­li­est stys­tems for pre­sent­ing col­or pho­to­graph­ic images.

In this talk, I will show a Stereo Ives Kro­moskop. Dia­grams will illus­trate the inter­nal work­ings of the view­er, and col­or images using mod­ern tech­niques to com­bine the three images to cre­ate col­or will be shown.

Vanes­sa Grein and David Kuntz

The Tex Tread­well Award at 3D-Con 2022 went to a joint entry from Vanes­sa Grein and David Kuntz. This is the first time in NSA his­to­ry a col­lab­o­ra­tive stere­o­card set has won, and work of this kind is rel­a­tive­ly unique in the 3D world. But, over the past two years, Vanes­sa and David have pro­duced dozens of images togeth­er. Their out­put includes their sig­na­ture neb­u­la scenes and many oth­er types of mul­ti-image com­pos­ites. In this pre­sen­ta­tion, Vanes­sa and David will describe some of their work­ing meth­ods and process, and of course, share many of their images.


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. Each time, we inter­view one or two of our com­mu­ni­ty members.
