Stereo Success!

Well, mostly. I worked on my guitar today (in case I haven't said anything about it yet, I've been building a custom guitar in a friend-of-family's shop since about July '09), and decided that the shop would be a cool place to try and do some stereo. Lots of objects at various depths.

I don't know what I did right here, but it seems to have worked. The only place I have trouble seeing is the lower left corner area. I can see it if I re-focus on my unfinished guitar back or the bandsaw table, but I can't see the entire image in focus and in 3d all at once.

Aperture: f/4.5
Shutter Speed: 1/15
ISO: 80

I'm  pretty happy with this. One thing that I read was putting a thicker border usually helps quite a bit. Other than that, I just did my best to line up the pictures in Photoshop before setting them into different sides of the image. I'll have to see if I can find some kind of software that specifically helps make stereo photos.


  1. I probably missed it somewhere back in your blog. Is there a trick to seeing the 3d effect to your stereo photos?

  2. I explained it in my very first post on stereophotography, back in early December. Here's a link:
