Stereographic Paintings/Photographs
« on: April 27, 2010, 03:00:04 PM »

After doing research for my final project in my Digital Photography course, I found some very interesting paintings on DeviantArt.  Stereography is a type of imaging that allows for 3D viewing.  There are two images, one for each eye, so that when you cross your eyes, a third image is made and appears 3D.  If you want to do more research on Stereography, be my guest. :)

Anyways, on to what I was getting at.  I found an artist on DeviantArt (artbytheo) and his paintings caught my eye. (No pun intended).

Here they are.

**If you can't cross your eyes and view in focus, cut out a dimensional square from a piece of paper.  Cross your eyes and then view through the square until the outside two images have disappeared and only the 3D image remains.**

That is amazing! Sure hurts to cross my eyes so severely, but it's worth it. What a great effect.

Here are a few tests I did before starting my actual final project.

They worked, nice job. I like the bottom one, the effect works out great with the seating.

So what's your project going to consist of?

Still undecided. Could be landscape, portraits, or still life. I can't really do action shots since I don't have a real stereoscopic camera. I have to use a single lens and then shift slightly for the second image, whereas the stereoscopic camera has two mounted lenses.

But if I get a fair amount of people for portraits, that'll be my project.

Two mounted lenses? Wow, I have to see this thing, haha.

I hear you about the action shot dilemma. The idea is to have two slightly different angles of the same exact image, right? What if you got two different camera's, put them next to each other, and took a shot at the same time. You could even place them on the setting that takes a string of like 10 pictures in a row for each camera, to increase your odds of success. Just an idea, I've no idea how well that would actually work.

Those paintings are amazing. I remember owning a Disney Adventures Duck Tales comic which used 3D via red/blue glasses. The drawings had no color, only outlines, but it was enough to suggest 3D forms. It was pretty neat.

I've always been intrigued by the idea of doing this in 2D animation (not with CGI), but nobody has really made a serious attempt at it.

Actually, the only attempt I've seen is Plan 9  from Underpants.

Any way to view these if you can't cross your eyes at all?

Well, there are devices called stereoscopic viewers, which I will be making in order to successfully hold my BFA show for photography.  But, there is no way to free-view these unless you have the device or cross your eyes. Sorry, mate. :/
