3D Photography

Introduction: 3D Photography

Ever wanted to take your own 3D pictures, (like the ones from the old comic books)? Now you can. With some free software, red/blue 3D glasses, (or the polarized kind), and a camera, you too can make your own 3D pictures!

Step 1: Step One: Gather Items

Required

Software (FREE!!) http://www.stereoeye.jp/software/index_e.html
Camera (any digital camera will do fine)
Red/Blue 3D Glasses (chances are you have a pair already)

Optional (But highly recommended)

Tripod
Measuring Tape

Step 2: Step Two: Capture Your Image(s)

3D photography is really a composition of 2 images. Youll be taking two SEPARATE images, one for view the left eye views, and a second for the right eyes view.

Step 3: Step Three: Overlay the 2 Images

Using the software, upload your LEFT and RIGHT images onto the program. Select the appropriate colors: (Red/Cyan) for regular red/blue 3D glasses. Then click "Make 3D image".

When youre happy with your picture, save and youre done! Now you can print, email, whatever you want.

    yo, so the distance you'll want to move the camera between shots is 1/30th the distance of the object you're shooting. ie, if your object is 30 feet away, take one shot, and then move the camera 1 foot left (or right) and take the second.

    yes, you can def use 2 cameras and mount them together to take the two pictures at the same time.

    film is also an option, if you know how to double expose the film

    I'm korean!

     I actually film video and shoot in stereoscopic photography formats. using a rig comprising of two camera exactly 63 centimeters apart ( avg. depth at witch 3D images can be seen 65 cen. for males and 64cen. for females.) and Pateneted the answer to your question "can the image really be seen in 3D? yes it can but your glasses must have the appropriate colors. cyan and magenta are the most common. as seen above. but you must have two images ( stereoscopic)  to acheive this effect. if you just use one. its just for show. and would be pretty embarrassing if you tried to show it off and it didnt work.

    so if I understood, the picture you end up with could really be seen in 3D with glass ? or its only fake but looks like?
