The pond behind the shed at Marcy Airfield NY.

this one is a bit disconcerting because I flipped it so the trees are up right and the leaves on the pond are upside down (top leaves look closer than bottom leaves). this works in 2D but I am not sure I like here.

Not 3D but I nailed this one. It’s a dragon fly from Marcy Airfield in near Keene New York where my wife and I are selling her beadwork jewelry on Sundays at the Keene Farmer’s Market. This one makes an awesome wall paper.

A nice picture at Point Au Roche State Park on Christmas Eve day 2013. I like the way the 3D works with the docks and tree lines. (Cross eye view)

3D on the iPhone 5

I recently upgraded to new iPhone 5 from a cr*ppy cheap smart phone wanna be that will remain nameless. This gave me the chance to try out and then buy the 3D Camera app ($1.99). It actually works extremely well. The two main rules for non-3D cameras apply here too, 1) no movement and 2) keep level. You will also have to learn over time how to space your paired shots, where to focus and to avoid certain edge clutter and too many skinny vertical objects. The learning curve will be greatly reduced with the instant feedback you get with this app.

This app also has a feature to make gif wobbles. I am still learning these wobbly Gif rules. Here are some 3D’s made with this app from a recent trip to the Montreal Museum of Fine Art straight off my iphone with no touching up. I have a bunch more made with my other camera and stereomaker that I am processing and should be up soon.These stereograms work the usual way, cross your eyes and focus on the middle image and vary your distance from the screen (make the one middle dot). Scroll down for some interesting wobbles. I couldn’t resist the Venus of Montreal!

A Flutter By!!
I did a wobble of one of my wife,s butterflies (see wizardislanddesigns.com). For this one I used StereoPhoto Maker and resized with Gimp.  Anabuilder is sort of past it now and will not even run on a Mac anymore. 
This beaded stuff has me thinking … . . more to come.

Ice and Death after Nemo

We went snow shoeing at Point Au Roche State Park in upper New York on Lake Champlain on the Sunday after Nemo hit. The storm blew piles of lake ice onto the shore. We also found one unfortunate casualty, a deer, that appears to have frozen to death during the storm. I thought it was nice that it turned into a natural bird feeder, but Karen was grossed out. It is kind of gory so be warned. All of these are set up for cross eyed 3D (cross your eyes and try to focus on the middle image as you vary the distance you are from the screen). The last one is particularly cool in my opinion but challenging to get the effect.
