Stereo photography, critiquing photographs


Stereo photography, critiquing photographs

  • Date:
  • Venue: Deakin Football Club; 3 Grose St, Deakin, ACT, 2600.

The April Dig-SIG meeting will start with a short discussion on stereo photography. This will cover how to take a (hyper)stereo photograph using a single camera and how to view stereo images using the cross-eye viewing technique. I will also bring along a Nikon Stereoscope to view some stereoscopic printed photos. Stereo photography images can be readily viewed on your computer screen using the cross-eye technique.

Give the cross-eye viewing a try by looking at the following two Flickr images https://www.flickr.com/urix5/26217786465/in/pool-655209@N24/ and https://www.flickr.com/photos/relaxednow/50548143302/in/pool-655209@N24/

The remainder of the meeting will be devoted to critiquing photographs. To help improve your photography, it is important to learn how to critique your own photos and those of others. To begin with Rob Wignell and Laurie Westcott, who have experience judging/critiquing photographs, will discuss how they go about judging photographs using several photos taken from a recent exhibition they were asked to judge.
