Intro to 3D Photography

3D (or Stereo) photography is about as old as the medium of photography itself. Basically, it involves taking two photographs of a scene, with some horizontal displacement between the two photographs (usually equal to the distance between your two eyes). If some means can be used to ensure that the left image is directed to the left eye, and the right image to the right eye, then each eye is presented with images very much as if you were at the scene personally. This creates a sensation in which the brain perceives depth.

Probably the most familiar 3D experience is the View-Master many of us played with as children.
