Have you ever heard of stereoscopic 3D images? It’s the old school way of making flat photographs look like they’re not. I mean really old school. In stereoscopic photography, two similar photographs are taken from slightly different positions. kind of like how we have two eyeballs and they both see a similar, but slightly different image. This was nature’s way of getting around the whole 3D glasses thing that gives everyone a headache. It’s also why you’d have trouble figuring out how far away that next knuckle shot to the face was if the first one knocked one of your eyes out.
A stereoscopic image becomes 3D when you take both images and merge them by crossing your eyes. This page, which includes a bulleted list, is probably a better explanation on tricking your brain into making it work. Also, if you happened to lose an eye in a bar-fight, or a severe underestimation of a toddler’s dexterity with a fork, your out of luck.
Here are a few images I produced while staying at my Sister and Brother-in-Law’s farm in BF, Virginia.
