Seeing in Three Dimensions

Learn about stereographic methods (anaglyph, lenticular, polarized, direct view) to create a visual perception of three dimensions from two dimensional images with resident astronomer Peter Lipschutz. Using the space related images, we will focus on anaglyph 3D, or the stereoscopic 3D effect using filters of different (usually chromatically opposite) colors, typically red and cyan, that brain perceives a three-dimensional scene or composition. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to process still images and video, and learn best practices to create their own 3D images.

Price: $40

Audience: Participants should have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop (or Adobe Premiere for video).

Materials: Materials provided. Please bring your own laptop with Adobe Photoshop (or Adobe Premiere for video), your stereo pair images (instructions will be shared upon registration), and a USB drive to transfer your process images for printing.

Peter Lipschutz is an amateur astronomer, photographer, and former instructor at the Hayden Planetarium. He forged an interest in 3D imaging due to the Mars Pathfinder (and later the Mars Rovers) and The Apollo Image Archives. Ultimately, he began photographing his own images and developing techniques to mosaic 3D images and create 3D video with a single camera.
