This evening’s presentation is light hearted in nature and will comprise image sequences and A/V shows. The content is varied and demonstrates a range of photographic styles and techniques used by those involved with stereoscopic 3D imaging over a period of more than 150 years.
‘Introducing Stereoscopy’ (7 minutes) – A very brief record of 3-D innovations and events that have taken place since the middle of the 19th Century, including recent digital images, presented in both 2D and 3D. Produced by Barry Aldous.
