Stereoscopic Images – Miracles of the Imaging

People have mastered two-dimensional imaging techniques, such as drawing, lithography, photography, and others centuries ago, but they have always aimed at mastering the art of recreating three-dimensional images on flat surfaces. This may seem to be a miracle, an illusion; however, in 1838 Sir Charles Wheatstone made the first step toward the materialization of the miracle, when he created the first stereogram images and a device, called stereoscope, enabling people see a picture with the depth and perspective while looking at the pair of seemingly usual flat images. Today, we want to showcase a gallery of stereoscopic images, representing the so-called wiggle stereoscopy – a simple yet interesting method of creating 3D effect.

Wiggle stereoscopy has got its name for the “shaking” nature of the picture, when two images, captured from two slightly different angles, are interchanged at a particular rate. This effect is easy to recreate on the PC, using Flash or animated gif. Though wiggle stereoscopy is sometimes criticized for its simplicity and incomplete 3D effect, the advantages of this method are obvious – you do not have to get yourself a specific 3D glasses or master a pretty challenging crossed-eye technique – a stereoscopic effect is achieved just with the help of two images wiggling in front of your eyes. We have included both color and B&W stereoscopic images into this gallery, so that you could evaluate the effect in different situations. Of course, stereoscopic photography is not a mainstream in the art of photography, but as the evidence of boundless capabilities of photography and imaging techniques – this is a powerful tool…

After trying myself in multiple spheres, I have decided that the bigger part of my soul clearly votes for the humanitarian sciences and art. Thus, following the call of my soul and mind I received the University education and now I am fully involved in multiple web activities. I am deeply interested in the novel web technologies, design, content development and management, optimization and marketing.
