3D anaglyph movie- Graceland Graveyard, Chicago

30 Apr

This video was video taped with two identical Canon Power Shot A710’s. A home made slide mount/rail was used with a lens camera separation distance of 10″. The video was processed using the following freeware: “any video converter”, “super build.23” and “stereo movie maker”. Pinnacle “Studio 10” was used to edit the final movie. To properly view this presentation, you need to use special 3D glasses with the left eye (red) , the right eye (cyan) color. You can get free paper glasses at:

A few examples of my Anaglyph photos which I took using an ordinary Cyber-shot Sony digital camera without any special 3D lens attachments. I employed the “cha cha” method of taking a photo, and then just moving slightly left or right and then taking the photo again. Later you combine the two images with a freeware program like as “stphmkre.exe”, or any other such program, for the blended 3D anaglyph. That’s all there is to it. Have fun! PS – You will need Red/Blue Anaglyph Glasses to properly view these. You can find them on the internet for under a dollar a pair. You can also sometimes purchase them at your local comic book or toy store.

7 April, 2010 – Constructing the Composition: Angkor Wat

29 Apr

Our new columnist, Art Wolfe, provides us today with an essay titled Constructing The Composition: Angor Wat.


The Apple iPad arrived this weekend along with the Easter Bunny and chocolate eggs. Rabbits and eggs are pagan fertility symbols that have somehow become intertwined with the Christian holiday, but there was something of an appropriate irony in Apple choosing this particular weekend to launch the iPad, since it is in many ways a harbinger of things to come.

I’ve been becoming familiar with mine for the past few days and continue to believe that it’s going to be a game-changer, especially for professional photographers, because of what it implies for the publishing industry. Print media will never be the same again.

There are also some new iPad specific apps that are either paticularly cool, or that may appeal to nature and landscape photographers, and one of these that I quite enjoy is Emerald Observatory.

Whether you’re an astronomy buff, a time freak, or a photographer looking for information about sunrise and sunset times, as well as the moon’s phase and position, Emerald Observatory will be the best .99 cents that you’ll spend this week.

If you ever wanted to know what it’s like to have a lot of angry zombies trying to grab hold of your supple flesh, now is your chance! This is Valve’s Left4Dead in stereoscopic 3D. While equally playable on NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision and iZ3D driver solutions, this video was captured using DDD Tridef Ignition stereoscopic 3D drivers with the PC version of the game. Stereoscopic 3D is the same tech used in 3D movie theaters, but now in the home with gaming!

an ode to the normals

29 Apr

Ah, the humble normal lens… in a day and age where all the glory goes to the 70-200/2.8s and the ultrawides, it is easy to overlook the humble elegance of the unassuming normal.  Traditionally the 50mm in 35mm terms, but may vary depending on format.

The normal is small, light, fast, sharp and versatile.

It does portraits, it does landscapes, it does street, event, low light…

Need to get in closer? take a step forward.  Need to get  wider? take a step back.   Unlike many other focal lengths the normal is almost chameleon-like in it’s ability to adapt itself to different situations, rendering tightly framed shots as well as “wider” with equal aplomb.  (yes I know the actual focal length and field of view don’t change, I refer only to it’s apparent versatility in framing).

In fact, I would estimate probably 75% of my shots overall are taken with a normal lens (50mm on my Nikon, 20mm on my gf1, 75mm on my Mamiya).

The normal lens has a long and influential life in the history of photography.  Many of the seminal images of the 20th century were made with the 50mm.

There is a kind of “Zen Like” simplicity to shooting with a normal as well – maybe it has something to do with the fact that it approximates the normal human field of view, but previsualizing the shot becomes almost unconscious.  As if one of the barriers between concept and image just falls away…

And then there’s the beautiful, beautiful depth of field.  Opening up to f/1.4 (or more!) just creates a whole new world of depth of field effects.

Of course the normal is not a *replacement* for your zoom – especially a telephoto or ultrawide, but if you’re a zoom shooter primarily, give it a shot – spend a couple of weeks with just a normal on your camera.  You might just find it addictive…
