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.
