Did you save those 3d glasses after seeing Avatar? If so, here’s another chance to use them. Check out the difference between the regular (bottom) and 3D (top) pictures. http://koudis.com/blog/index.php andhttp://www.workbook.com/portfolios/koudis
I love shooting in 3D – as you probably like to call it. The correct terminology is stereoscopic anaglyph, thank you very much, but let’s just call it 3D. It’s just so much more fun that way.
Last week I had to shoot an album cover for an artist that I can’t name. That’s how it works with celebs. Basically, I’m “embargoed” until the record label says I can show any work. I’ll show you that stuff soon enough. But for now, my point is this – I shot an album cover in 3D. I used two synchronized Canon 5D Mark2’s on a special rig that I designed, to capture simultaneous left and right exposures. It really looks great. But you can’t see it.
But here’s something you can see. And I think this is even better. I’ve just converted a 2D image into 3D. I’ve taken a flat 2D photo I shot of Mike White, and converted it to honest to goodness 3D! Seriously, This was just a normal 2D photo until my conversion. This was not done in simple photoshop layers, dear Watson. This is a full-blown stereoscopic conversion. I imported the image into modo401, sculpted it to get the relief of the head, then re-photographed (rendered) it virtually with two offset cameras. Go get your red/cyan glasses and look at that nose!
