Try making a 3D photo!
May 28, 2009

Dear Stay Focussed reader!

Welcome to the newsletter.

I hope this finds you well.

There's a whiff of summer in the air here at the moment. More precisely there's the whiff of charcoal burning, accompanied by the aroma of burning sausages!

This all indicates summer is just around the corner, and that means days out.

Recently I dragged the family to Eastbourne (Sussex, UK) to soak up some rays, and naturally took the camera along too.

I was looking for some photo opportunities and then, on Eastbourne pier, I found what I was looking for.

Looking directly back along the pier made for an interesting shot, but I wanted something more. So I turned to 3D!

Take a look at the photos below.
3D stereoscopic image of Eastbourne, Sussex

At first glance this looks like two identical photos, but it's not.

When I took this I deliberately took two photos - one 'through' my left eye, and one 'through' my right eye.

They were then swapped over (so the 'left' photo is on the right side above).

All that's required to see a fantastic 3D effect is a little know-how, and some practice!

Take a look at this 3D stereoscopic photography page for details on how to view this picture in 3D.

And if you already know how to view stereoscopic photographs, take a look at my 3D stereoscopic photography gallery.

Pearls from the submissions . . .

As you know I get quite a lot of submissions to the site each month. I though it would be nice to include just a few of the best in my newsletter:
And if you get a photo that you would like to share, there's info here on how to submit photos to the site.


My aim is to share, and this newsletter with as many people around the world as possible- helping the whole world take better photos!

If you know of someone who would be interested in receiving this newsletter, please forward this email onto them, and ask them to click here, or send them this link:

Thanks for your help!
