The recorded lecture we hired from the PAGB that was shown on 15th February was entitled 'Photography and Art'. Presented by Adrian Lines MPAGB FBPE EFIAP ARPS, it demonstrated his take on altered reality.
On 8th February, our 3D Extravaganza Training evening started with Graeme Mitchell setting out the history of 3D imaging stretching back to the mid-1800s. Apparently an evening round the fire with the stereoscope was the late Victorians' equivalent of television.
That technique was based on taking pairs of images and viewing them side-by-side through a stereoscope. Methods developed over the years and the anaglyph method with two superimposed tinted images being viewed through tinted glasses is the current favourite. This involves taking two images from camera positions spaced horizontally equivalent to the space between human eyes.
