  • darksideoftherainbow October 16th, 2012 3:51 PM

    my jaw literally dropped!! i had never seen anything like that before and it is truly amazing. thank you so much for sharing these great 3D pictures!!

  • Ida October 16th, 2012 3:57 PM

    Absolutely amazing!
    Speaking of trips, does anyone have any advice on what to do or not do in Sri Langka? (Or just what to eat or say or wear, anything!) I’m going there in december with my family and I would be very happy to hear from someone who’s been there.
    Love to all you rookies out there

    • Indigoblue October 16th, 2012 5:21 PM

      I am half Sri Lankan and the tips I can give you are:
      Clothes bring stuff for the beach and invest in lots of kaftans and flowing clothes
      Be aware of all the insects there and check malaria zones and bring repellent or take medicine
      Pack loads of sun cream!!!
      Visit this website its very helpful
      The language spoken is tamil/ Hindi check the area you are going to for slang and pronunciation etc
      Please try and visit one of the beaches!!
      Hope this helps just reply back to me if you need any more tips!! :-)

        Another language is Sinhalese, but (dependent on where you are) most people can speak english!

  • periwinkle_dreams October 16th, 2012 4:12 PM

    I have no idea how to make photos 3D, but it looks absolutely magical, and these are great pictures! I love the one of the little girl and the bird :)

  • AliceS October 16th, 2012 4:20 PM

    Olivia’s work is always amazing!! The last two are my favorite ^^


  • NotReallyChristian October 16th, 2012 4:20 PM

    Yes! I was in Japan in the spring and it was just like this! I was visiting a friend in Hiroshima, but she had to work some days so I also just spent some time rolling round on bullet trains by myself. So much fun! ニ本が大すきです!

  • Morning Moon October 16th, 2012 4:20 PM

    Awesome!!!!!! I really love it!!!! <33

  • Jon October 16th, 2012 4:27 PM


    I’m trying to understand how you managed to capture moving subject matter (specifiically, water and Power Rangers) using regular stereo photography methods, and at this point in my work day, my mind cannot wrap around your technique. All I can fathom is that you either created a three-camera contraption, pulled stills from shooting a short video, or you just happen to take snapshots at lightning speed. I’m hoping for the latter. Whatever the case may be, my day is made.

    • Jon October 16th, 2012 4:42 PM

      And discarding my video still theory — considering the occasional flare, going to assume these are negative scans.

    • 062131 October 16th, 2012 8:18 PM

      There are stereoscopic cameras with more than two lenses!
      I’m assuming this is what you’re asking, I’m not sure. And I’m not sure if it really is the case! haha

  • koalabears October 16th, 2012 4:28 PM

    so amazing :O I love the one with the girl in the sea, and that one in the train and… they’re are all great! this question is probably silly, but how do you make these?

  • Yi Lin October 16th, 2012 4:31 PM

    these are amazing!! x

  • modaboutyouu October 16th, 2012 4:32 PM

  • mmorsmordree October 16th, 2012 9:16 PM

    Amazing! Just all of it. I can’t even put how much I love this into words. I’m into photography but I haven’t figured out this technique, I’ve seen it on tumblr and on other blogs but I think this is my favorite use of this technique. You guys should put up a how to.

  • bee1000 October 16th, 2012 9:17 PM

    These photos are downright envy-inducing. Wonderful work!

  • ValeCrts October 16th, 2012 10:01 PM

    This made me feel in Japan! The volumey quality of the pictures make it look like Japan is less of a faraway dreamland. Thank you for sharing this! x

  • Olivia October 17th, 2012 4:13 PM

    hi guys! these are taken with a 3D camera from the 80′s! it is called a nishika n8000. you can read more about this kind of photography here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nimslo. it’s basically taking a lenticular camera (one that makes images similar to those on a 3d bookmark or iPhone case) and digitizing it and making it into a gif rather than making a 3d print.

    • Jon October 18th, 2012 11:33 AM

      Mystery solved — muchas gracias!

  • catpower44 October 17th, 2012 5:10 PM

    Awesome photos! So pretty!

  • aliastro October 17th, 2012 6:29 PM

    Can you get the film developed anywhere and get all the files from them or is it more complicated?

    • bee1000 October 18th, 2012 12:11 PM

      Check out the Wikipedia page and you’ll see a photo of what the developed film looks like. It’s really hard to describe, but makes sense when you see it.

      The camera uses regular 35mm film so you could get it developed anywhere, but because you’re getting 4 small images every time you press the shutter instead of 1 normal image, I don’t know what the results would be if you took your film to the drug store to get developed and scanned. They might scan each little frame into its own JPG or you might get 2 frames in each JPG.

      They wouldn’t ruin anything, but generally drug store film scans are awful anyway. If you have a photo store in your town that develops film in-house, that would be your best bet (maybe even Costco). Mpix might be a good online option.

      • bee1000 October 18th, 2012 3:28 PM

        I sent an email to Mpix and they said their equipment would scan the film just like if it were from a regular camera so each JPG from them would contain 2 smaller images.

        Bottom line is you could send them your roll of film just like it were from a regular camera and get scans back. There’d be an extra cut/paste/align step when making a GIF, but nothing too arduous.

        I hope that helps!

        (I have no relationship with Mpix, by the way. I’m just a satisfied customer.)

        • aliastro October 18th, 2012 10:20 PM

          Awesome thanks! I bet the Lomography store here would do it too, they sell that 3D Holga.

  • claire_eliz October 17th, 2012 10:47 PM

    SO BEAUTIFUL! Took me away from the boring midwest for a while…loved #13!!!

  • Jen L. October 18th, 2012 10:54 AM

    I looove #17. Although my photo teacher always yells at me for shooting into the sun rather than away from it.
