3D pictures are a digital generation’s answer to classical photography. People used to think that the only way to take good pictures was by taking the camera outdoors and getting a great photo every time. However, 3D technology changes all that. If you’re interested in how 3D pictures will improve your photography and see the next great example photos below, keep reading.
Probably the biggest value-add of making 3D pictures is depth mapping, which allows the camera to draw the subject out of the photo and helps to enlarge it. For example, if you were taking a photo of a child playing with a ball, you would probably want to make the background a little bit darker so that you could see the child’s head and arms clearly. This makes the 3D photo much more interesting to look at because you’re able to actually see the real subject of the image. Another example of this is when you are looking at a statue or a flower.
To take 3d pictures, you need three things: depth perception, lighting, and a tripod. In the past, photographers either had to have real cameras (which obviously cost a lot of money), or use some sort of lens (which was very expensive). Today, photographers can get extremely high quality 3d pictures with a relatively inexpensive and common (and cheap) piece of equipment called a digital camera. One reason that digital cameras have become so popular is that they eliminate the need for using expensive SLR cameras.
Another reason that digital photography is better than traditional photography is that it doesn’t require the photographer to actually move his/her body at all. Traditional photography requires a photographer to shift their body in order to get a slightly different angle. But with digital photography, you can just press a button and have a new angle created automatically for you. You’ll also notice that you are able to take more pictures because the 3d pictures work best when the subject is in motion. The more the subject moves, the better the 3d pictures will look.
Here is a 2d image tutorial showing how to take great 3d pictures even though you’re not in a studio: Get the camera ready for portrait mode by turning on the camera’s self-timer. Position yourself so that you are slightly above the object you would like to photograph so that everything will be focused on your subject. Then take the centermost picture out of your series of shots. Position your camera on the ground and look upwards slightly to see if your object is in focus.
The next 2d step in this article is to create a sequence of 3d pictures by taking a series of stereograms. The first picture in this sequence should be of your face. Position your camera on a horizontal position to make it easier to see the details of your face. Move it in a zigzag motion to make the image look as if it is being blown up. Stop once you’ve gotten every single detail in focus. These 3d pictures are called stereograms.
