I’ve been playing around with 3D photography since the summer of 2009, using a setup of two identical Canon PowerShot A720 IS cameras synchronised with StereoData Maker and the SDM Canon USB Remote, and, since November, a FujiFilm FinePix REAL 3D W1. The technique I currently use for presenting these photos is the red-cyan anaglyph. I process my photos on a Mac, mostly using RedGreen (but occasionally also Photoshop).

I plan to experiment with other 3D photography techniques, too, in the future, both for shooting (vintage film cameras, image splitters, sliders) and for presentation (lenticular prints, 3D displays).

I also shoot video in 3D, using the same cameras. I edit the video in Final Cut Pro, and that’s also where I turn the pair of clips into red-cyan anaglyphs.

The main objective of this blog is to share my experiences as I explore the fascinating field of stereo photography. Knowing myself, my main antagonists in this quest will be procrastination and perfectionism, and I’m determined to fight them by actually posting here, as opposed to spending an eternity waiting for inspiration or working on a blog post. Hoping for a forgiving audience, I’m determined to choose the resulting poor writing and other minor and major imperfections over the much bleaker alternative of an error-free blog whose lack of imperfections would arise solely from its complete lack of content…

One Response to “About”

  1. I’m grateful for your work here. I’m working on a MacBook Pro 13″ Mid-2012 running Mac OS X 10.8.4, and using a FujiFilm 3D W3 camera. Due to Fuji’s apparently solely Windows OS focus for the accompanying software for this camera, I’ve so far been stumped in finding a reasonably usable tool to convert its resultant .MVI and .MVI files to Macintosh and Apple iOS usable forms with the assistance of my MacBook Pro. I’m not a Windows user, and not a very technically proficient Mac user, either. I do, though, have many years of experience with a variety of Mac applications, so I don’t necessarily need a single step which can do all I need after establishing my preferences, but at least finding an Automator script which takes me through a substantial portion of it would be extremely useful to me, and, I imagine, to legions of other Macintosh users.
