As you read yesterday, 3D has a pretty rich history in our culture.
All of the ways to achieve it in print are based in the realm of shooting film.
Or are they?
I bought one, put it onto a Nikon D70 and it is incredible! A fixed lens with minor adjustments available (2 Fstops), it really works.
Using manual settings to get the right exposure, and of course my favorite 4×6 printer to quickly print out the dual images on one right sized print,
the Epson PictureMate Deluxe
I have been a 3D shooting fool!
Constantly looking for the right dimensional opportunity, this fast and relatively easy way to shoot and print 4×6 3D photos has been a blast.
When you purchase this “lens in a cap”as they call it, you also get a simple viewer, but the images will work in any number of Stereoscope units.
You see, there is a certain joy to exploration with something that is just fun. And the prospect of achieving a unique special image from this is…well…bonus!
And the fact that these 3D images can really only be seen one person at a time to full effect brings a more initimate concentrated viewing.
Nothing heavy, no global message. Cool to look at.
So check out the site. The lens is approx $100. USD. Nice folks there if you have questions.
We’ll get into more of the upcoming things this fall thorugh the week.
