Thanks Giving – A little late

Well been really busy over the past few weeks. Not had time to take any picture, only a couple on Thanks Giving. Did learn a good lesson when taking pictures of the kids visiting Santa. Don’t try to take 3D picture while juggling 2 camera, just does not work, you need to concentrate more when your taking 3D photos, the composition, distance from subject. Its really not a game of point and shoot. Anyway, take a look at the photo below of our Thanks Giving turkey. BTW it tasted good.

Finepix Real 3D W3 Macro Feature

Took a few pictures while playing with my daughter (Shannon) building towers with her building blocks. I took a couple with the macro feature, and here is one of them. I think it looks pretty good, especially for being taken closeup.

The blue and yellow color came OK, but just a little ghosting.

Dallas Arboretum

Had a great trip to the Dallas Arboretum to see the Pumpkin displays, the 2 girls had alot of fun running around and looking at all the pumpkins. This time I converted my photo to Black and White anaglyphs using my favorite converter (Stereophoto maker).

Looking for a better way to display my images on my website. Not sure if Andy’s method will work with my Joomla site, but I think I might give it a try. Anyone any ideas ??

Red in your photo, not so good

Well I took a bunch of photos at the play area with the kids yesterday, and learnt a valuable lesson. Red in you photo does not do well in an anaglyph. Take a look at the first photo, the slide is made from red plastic, and it does not look good in the anaglyph. But the second picture on the tire swing looks great (No red).

My Favorite 3D photo I have taken so far

I took this latest picture of my daughter in the sand pit at the sub-division swimming pool. Which seems to be her favorite place right now. I think I was really lucky with this one, the distance was just right, nothing interfering in the foreground and nothing too complex in the background. I created the anagyph from the .MPO file from my W3 in StereoPhoto Maker using the Dubois (Red/Cyan) stereo output option. This seems to mute the colors a little and stop the glare from any color conflicts.

Let me know what you think. If you have any suggestions to improve the shot, or how I create the anaglyph please let me know. When I take more images I will post here and on my website –

1st attempts with my Finepix W3

Just recently bought a Finepix Real 3D W3, and I thought I would share a few of my 1st attempts, I think with a little practice you can take some really good 3D images. I’m currently converting them to anaglyphs, not sure this is the best way to view. You can find more of my photos at

It’s personal

OK, why I like this one. It hasn’t actually got that much depth. How could it? It’s just a shot of the ground, a few stones and a discarded broken water bottle. But stand back from the screen and the depth of the water bottle’s clear. The hard ground and stones reveal their smaller depth too.

It’s personal too…

I love to run. Cyprus is the hottest place I’ve ever run. I took my camera with me on this run and stopped at the point of this discarded water bottle. I cannot describe how hot it was and for that moment I imagined I’d run too far and that I needed water. What would it be like to see this discarded broken water bottle? To me the shot is lovely because my feet and trainers are not in the shot but are revealed only by the shadow.
