Stereoscopic images

Postby TheHero » Sun Dec 01, 2013 3:47 am

A thread for us interested in Stereoscopic images. 3D

Parallell viewing
Cross-Eyed viewing
Free Eye viewing


I was introduced to this for the first time when I ordered the beautiful book, A Village Lost And Found (By Brian May).

Finally I realized what this was all about, quite an amazing viewing experience. The parallell-viewing "owl" that Brian constructed, and that comes with the book, is simply a brilliant tool for this.

Please share other 3D photos or discuss the topic here :)


A little introduction:

In the book A Village Lost And Found there is also lots of information on viewing techniques, how to take stereo pictures yourself etc. Very interesting stuff. In this book the photos are for parallell-viewing only, not cross-eyed technique.

The photos are old, but one of the best things with this, is that you are able to go back in time and view how things were. You get the feeling of being inside the photo.

Something else is free viewing technique:

Do you see the 3D image here ? (Look through the photo, stare through it).

Are you getting his Diableries book as well? That one looks really neat.

I'd love to have both of them, one of these days. Barnes and Noble here in Missouri doesn't have them, they'd have to be special ordered,or ordered from Amazon.

I had a chance a couple of months ago to purchase an old stereoscope and 20 cards, mostly of London. I've got the woman's business card, and am still tempted to call her to see if it's all still available.

It's all about finding the spare cash for this stuff....

Cheerleaders.
I've been stereo viewing for years and 'A Village' is a lovely book, I've got several others about London at the turn of the century. I won't be buying the 'little devil' ones, I simply just don't like them. I used to have a video (yup a real tape) of those 3D coloured images, once you'd tuned your eyes in, you could watch the video quite easily, like a 3D film. I've lost it now, and I've never seen one before or since.

You can make your own stereo pictures with a little programme called Callipygian.
Music is the only language in which you cannot say a mean or sarcastic thing.

A little more info:

Here are examples. If you already have the stereoscope "The Owl", simply hold it in front of the screen to view this in 3D:

:oha:

If you don`t want to spend money on a book, but are just interested in trying out Parallell-viewing, then it is possible to order the stereoscope designed by Brian May here:

Yep, I had a Viewmaster in the 50's.
And I remember when I was little I used to enjoy visiting a room, I think it was at our community center, that was set up to be a walk back into the victorian era, and I was captivated by looking at the cards in the stereoscope there.

I want the Diableries book, but I haven't purchased it yet.

To be honest, I only bought A Village Lost and Found originally because Dr. Bri was doing a lecture & book signing, and I would be able to go and meet him. :onfire: But after hearing him speak about it and taking us through a collection of the images, I became fascinated with it. I'd like to try and take some of my own.
