DSC029873dn Thanks to Wei & Dan for this Chicago NIRX-3D - 6/16/07 - W view

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

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.

Hey Volkan, have you noticed that, in generally (not always) the stereo pictures get a lot more views (at least in recent postings) that the normal photos? Do you think it reflects the number of people that can percieve 3D? or a lot of people think it is a single shot with two diferent objects side by side and decide to have a closer look because it's just odd? I wonder...

Volkan Yuksel on June 20, 2007

Vasco, hopefully viewers are finding 3D pictures more exciting than 2D ones :) Take care, Volkan

Vasco Pires on June 20, 2007

Yes, I think I already understand that, the point that I'm trying to make is: Why? do they see in 3D? if not, why do they like them more? what's the fun in having two almost similar photos side by side? Wha'ts the point? That's what I'm trying to comprehend here. I'm missing something here....

Olivier Souliman on June 21, 2007

Hi Vasco, I think your first explanation is the right one ("What's this strange kind of shot ? Well, I want to look at this closer !"). But of course I'm not sure and I'd prefer something like "Wow ! 3D is really great !!!" But where is truth ?

Hope my english is not too bad and you and Volkan and Other can understand my meaning ...

Take care,


Vasco Pires on June 21, 2007

Well Olivier I guess so... I'd also prefer people to see the 3D effect rather than a strange shot but... maybe when Forum is up again I'll start some poll to see how many people can percieve them. Your English is better than mine! :)


Volkan Yuksel on June 21, 2007

Dear Olivier and Vasco, as you know these pictures are not in GE or in popular tabs yet, we never know whether if all will get there. Therefore since they are not so publicly available for random visitors, current viewers must already know us trough some sort of bookmarking or they are finding these pictures from tag search system. My close friend Umit Tuncay indicated to me that every time I upload pictures, he gets a message. I hope this helps...

I think our 3D post in the forum was really helping people to keep them interested until they could see it for themselves in 3D. And our international team was growing. I miss our days with the forum, but If you folks realized we are ~120degrees apart from each other around the globe. That means us remaining 3 X-3D musketeers, still have coverage for the entire globe :) One for all, all for one :) I am sure Tim and Chip is busy doing tons of 3D too.

Enough for wishful thinking, take care friends, Volkan

Olivier Souliman on June 23, 2007

Hi Vasco ! I think we'll never agree about our respective capacities in english !!! I'm really sure that yours are better than mine ... The best way for me is french !!! I'm really enjoying your shots (I just saw your black cat in a white sink : what a great idea !!! That's what I don't have! It makes the difference.) Friendly,


Vasco Pires on June 23, 2007

Well I think the secret behind a good shot isn't just about the idea, I guess it's more about luck and opportunity, and of course a little framing. This cat shot was uploaded by me a few weaks ago, it caught the whole bathroom and you barely could see the cat in the thumbnail so it had just a few views. I took it down, cropped, boosted up the contrast a bit and uploaded it again. Anyway you can see it's story here

Hi, Volkan. I've been kind of on a break from 3D for a while, learning how to use my new panorama stitcher. And, though I may be a big fan of 3D, I find myself getting headaches from viewing them. I've got thousands of old stereo pairs, taken over the past few years, but very few of them are worth posting. I'll be taking new ones soon though, and I may even try Vasco's idea about 360° moving panoramas.

Wei O'Connell (tianp… on July 2, 2007

Volkan, I just posed a 3D picture. Your comment is greatly appreciated.

Really like this picture. Nicely done!

Volkan Yuksel on July 2, 2007

Dear Wei and dear friends thanks for your inputs. I am sorry I did not have much time to reply back to all your comments yet. Volkanzilla is about to take new pictures tomorrow for which he is getting ready. As always if he can take nice shots, I will share them with you in couple of days :) Best wishes to you all, Volkan

Hi Tivadar, This is not bad. But I recommend you to see this and this for Infrared 3D shots. Take care, Volkan
