DSC02409 3ds2n mini Ice Cave in 3D :)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

If you like to see this scene in dazzling 3D, please cross your eyes until left and right images overlap in the center. The center area should appear in 3D. You can also copy the entire image and paste it to Stereo Photo Maker for full screen viewing with zoom and pan ability or changing the 3D viewing technique. This image pair from a lava cave or the purple lotus flower is good for beginners due to their simplicity.

As you may have noticed, these images are simply taken with some offset distance between them with a regular digital camera. Therefore it is also possible for you to use your regular camera to start making your own stereoscopic 3D photographs with the mentioned software and share.

Wishing you best of luck for your success on this very simple to make yet amazingly rewarding technique.

So nice! very beutiful. I'm passionated for 3D this is a real way to see the world. I'm a beginner of the 3D picture, and have made my photos with a common camera having taken twoo pictures lightly differents. This comment is from Rio Grande do Sul- Brazil

Dear Prof. Piovesean, [ I presume :) ]

Thank you very much for kind comments to my 3D pictures.

I am using single camera and taking two images with some distance between them as well. It is extremely easy and results are very often "mind blowing" and much higher quality than other commonly known methods that require additional tools to view 3D. I am very happy to see that you're as passionate as I am about sharing the 3D pictures from our planet.

Best wishes from Chicago :)

Whoah! THAT is amazing! Did you get your foot wet? I've got the bug now too and have tried a few if you care to look!

Volkan Yuksel on September 12, 2007

Thanks again for your comment VKeith. Yes I have seen your work. From what I see, you can experiment with larger shift distances to make the "depth" effect more pronounced.

Pass the bug around :) Best wishes from Izmir

How do we see the 3D effect without a viewer such as a stereo opticon?

Volkan Yuksel on January 10, 2009

Hello Tom, there is a discussion about 3D in the forum section which I hope would be helpful. But basically you need to cross your eyes until you'd see 3 images. If you can do this you'll perceive the one in the center as 3D. Good luck and best wishes from Izmir. Volkan

Thank, Volkan. I thought it worked like you explain. I almost got the effect but I did it with a rather sloppily cut card and I'm not sure my viewing distance was correct. Now that I know in general how it works, I'll try it again.

Volkan Yuksel on January 14, 2009

Well Tom, I am very happy that you are one of the rare individuals who can see 3D strait from the computer screen. As you see, possibilities are endless, Enjoy :)

Cheers from Izmir, Volkan
