[stereograms] not your typical Sydney tourist photos

  1. Or I would suggest that *instead* of the old concrete-bag method, just
    use a piece of rope tied to the tripod base, and held taught beneath
    your foot... Gee, those film guys sure like to do things the hard
    (O: (in case the reader is comedically challenged..)

    Cool shots, Troy!

    :) Thanks Mark. Probably not the best photos by themselves, I
    know. But add in the 3D effect and I think they're worth it.

    It surprises me every time how much clearer and sharper the combined image
    seems to be than the two originals. Inspired by yourself, I had a go using
    just an old 2Mp P&S and the results were quite remarkable. I just took the
    first shot of the pairs with my weight on my left foot and then shifted to
    my right foot for the second. It worked a treat, although my subject matter
    was just crap snaps around the garden. I'll have to play a bit more with a
    slightly better camera and subject.

    These are really well done.
    What is the technique?

  6. You are a prize wanker if that's all you can come up with.

    Top post or bottom post does it really matter?
    What are you gonna do to Bob, kill him if he fails to comply with your
    obsessive compulsive wishes?

    :) What I need to do is wait until
    the kid is older, big and strong enough
    to carry the concrete himself!
    Then I can relax and yell instructions while
    straining my thumb opening the beer can...

    Thanks mate.
    For shooting them? I just take one shot, then move myself to the
    right about eye distance (100mm or so) and take another shot. No
    tripods or anything. Not an exact science IMO. :)

    Bring them on...
    Really liked the tower one. The trussed frame gives it much depth.
    Oh, and that one.
    As with some of mine, probably not the best shot by itself, but
    in stereo much more interest added.
    Simple, yet effective. Do you trigger them at the same time?
    Mounted on tripod?
    Not for me :) Thanks for sharing.

    Twin-index-finger method.

    Used up the tripod mounts! (hehe)

    Stereo Photo Maker <http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/stphmkr/> will do that
    if you're on Windows or Mac. You can load an existing stereo image
    and then zoom in and pan around.

    It also allows conversion between different types of stereo image.

    Thanks for the link. The interface will take some getting used
    to, but it looks like it'll be worth the effort.
