You Have Most Likely Made 3D Photos

Updated on October 8, 2012

In a previous article, the one whose link follows this hub, I mentioned the fact that people often take 3D photos without realizing it. That's how easy it is to create 3D work. One example of this phenomenon is found in this link:

You will notice that there is more than one photo of some scenes. I decided to take a look at those duplicated photos to see if any were 3D candidates. One was a copy, and another was taken without moving. But the third double scene was a 3D pair, where the photographer moved a little to the side before taking the second picture. That's all that is needed to make a 3D pair. That pair is the one shown here.

Before we continue, A NOTE: I asked the author if he wanted me to show him how he made 3D photos. He gave me permission to do so, and the only way I know of to get the results to him is to create a hub to showcase it. I therefore must stress that these photos are his work, and I ask that you do not copy them nor attribute them to me.

Continuing on: The first photo pair is designed to be viewed by diverging your eyes. This comes naturally to some people as they attempt to "cross" their eyes. This type of person actually diverges them when they think they are crossing them. If you "diverge" your eyes, and you don't see a 3D image, then you've crossed them, and you need to print the picture (with Claptona's permission), cut them apart, reverse their order then cross your eyes as you look at the two photos.

The second set of photos is designed to be printed (with Claptona's permission), and pasted and viewed in the way demonstrated in the hub following this article (see the text surrounding Fig. 1)

If you haven't learned, yet, how to diverge your eyes (like they teach you with the Magic Eye images), then follow the link below, specifically in the third paragraph under Fig. 1:

The pair of photos at the top of this article can be viewed by diverging your eyes while looking directly at the screen. If the photos are too far apart, you can go to VIEW/80% to make the image a little smaller. Then, by putting your eyes next to the screen (while relaxing them) you slowly move backwards until the pictures come into focus. That's when you'll see the stereoptic effects. In other words, you'll see the scene in 3D.

If you have your own set of "one-more-shot" photos, and you wish to see if they make good 3D photos, go ahead and give them a try. If you have trouble, just write me, and I'll give you more help on the subject.

If you have made videos while moving in a car or in an airplane, you can take any two adjacent frames (or near-neighboring frames) and create a 3-D scene. Right there is a treasure-trove of 3-D pictures to enjoy.

If you sell any of your new 3-D scenes, or find a way to make money in this system, I would appreciate being asked for legal rights and a piece of the pie.

      Took me a moment to understand what you meant, and then I remembered seeing a tv program that took photos in a circle a milli second after the first one, and slightly at a different angle, then I got it! lol!
