Stereo Photography - Like Actually Being There

This typically involves using two photographs that differ only slightly from one another and place them side by side with each eye focusing on one photograph. Photographs like this can be used to depict beautiful scenery in a way that traditional photographs simply can not. Photographs of Vancouver, the recent Olympic Games host city, are much more detailed and lush when viewed using stereo photography.

These types of devices utilized transparency viewers to present each eye with a slightly different image that once backlit gives the illusion of three dimensions. While the effect is similar, modern technology has taken this approach to new heights when it comes to stunning photographs.

Stereoscopy might not be the most common type of photography out there, but it does deliver a level of viewing satisfaction that is hard to express until you have seen it with your own eyes. In the past stereo images were a novelty and little more.

It will be hard to look at traditional photographs after viewing stereoscopic images. It should come as no surprise that photography is in path of some massive shift when it comes to the way that we will view something as timeless as photographs.
