I suspect it is one of those things you need to start training for when your eyes are younger and more flexible.

You will find a less "tongue in cheek" explanation if you scroll down in this article. http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-S...c-Photography/

Many thanks Peter for the explanation. I doubt if I'll be trying it more than once

Regards,

John

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

This week, someone in another forum saw my stereos, looked up "crosseye stereo", tried it and got it to work first time.

The best way is to place a forefinger vertically between the tip of you nose and your eyebrows and then to follow it out with your eyes (defocused to distance) towards the space between the two images.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Cobra Lily Darlingtonia californica

This is a small plant which I purchased this week. They have a reputation of being difficult to keep alive so I have not delayed photographing it. The species is not a "lily" but a relative of Sarracenia and is also an insectivorous bog plant.

This was in overcast daylight but the shiny surface still gave problems.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/30 at f10.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

A Squatter in an Orchid Pot

I had a Calanthe orchid which I photographed and uploaded some images

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1360685/0?

Someone said that the images indicated that the plant had a virus. Well, it did die and there has been no sign of life in the pot until recently. I was all the more surprised to see vigorous growth of very lily-like foliage. The single stem grew taller and taller and then produced flower buds.

I photographed the first flower to open and then three together, the first one a bit past its best. I used 1/50 second at f11 and was a little surprised that the gusty wind in the second session did not cause motion blur. I had to wait for the stem to pause it movement and remain vertical briefly, especially for (crosseye) stereo pairs.

I have no idea how this plant came to be in the pot. Anyway, it is most welcome and the perfume is glorious.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, daylight, hand-held.

First outing today with the 12-100 Pro, mostly close up stuff. Taken at Westbury Court Garden just outside Gloucester. First impression of the lens is good, although it is rather heavy.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Start rant. The Orange Day-lily is an Asian species introduced to North America. More commonly known as a Tiger Lilly around this part of Ontario. It's an invasive species that can be so common some people mistake it for a native species. I visited a local nature reserve yesterday where these were growing out of control in places. Maybe it's time it was made a notifiable species to try and eradicate it from the wild. /rant

Weingartia platygona syn Rebutia neocummigii

Just some pretty flower pictures and an excuse for a crosseye stereo. Shot in slight shade on a bright, sunny day.

EM-1 (aperture priority), Oshiro 2:1 60mm, probably f8 (f11 for stereo) hand-held,

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Ripening Bryony Bryonia dioica Berries

This is the same plant that the Bryony ladybird feeds on, although I has not done the feww seconds of flight to invade this second plant.

I was photographing some insects nearby when the colours of the ripening berries drew my attention. I thought this group was rather pleasing. Just a reminder: all parts of the plant are very poisonous to us, to cattle and probably to other mammals.

EM-1, Oshiro 2:1 60mm macro, 1/200 sec ISO 250, hand-held.

The stereo is crosseye.

Mullein Bits in Stereo

There is an abstract flavour to this flower. I like the feathery anthers but getting several in focus together was very difficult and they have a very strange texture around the tips. The stereo is crosseye. For me, the stereo works much better than the single frame, which I have omitted.

EM-1, Oshiro 2:1 60mm macro, twin flash, hand-held.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Alien in the Woodpile

Earlier this month I found a sturdy, whitish outgrowth from a long-dead log of wood. I photographed it (first two images) but it ceased growth and shrivelled. I did not know what it was.

Some days later, I found another example, this time at a more-advanced growth stage.It was clearly an Inkcap mushroom, as it is growing on wood, probably the Glistening Inkcap Coprinellus micaceus. It was a bit damaged where it had grown in contact with an adjacent log but this showed inner structures.

The stereo is crosseye.

EM-1, Oshiro 2:1 60mm macro, twin TTL flash, hand-held.
