Lunchbreak experiment: A little trick called a stereoscopic image.
I first discovered this idea here, and I must admit the result isn’t perfect. (I think there’s too much distance between photos and they aren’t well aligned.)
Still….it kind of works, doesn’t it?
Note to photographers: The trick is to create two images which are side-by-side with identical framing. (ex: The Eskimo Inn sign is at the centre of the frame but the tripod was moved a foot sideways.) The back and forth motion leads to a sense of depth perception.
Expect to see a few more of these now and then in the new section called “video and motion.”
LATER NOTE: Can we agree than the middle image is the best one? Which do you think is most effective?
