Oh blimey. I’ve just seen my first 3D photo.. an ordinary selfie taken by a regular person with apparently no particular photography obsession, just some fun new toy or app.

I have zero idea how this is done and suddenly feel way behind with the news! As a passionate amateur photographer it looks a bit gimmicky to me and I’m not necessarily keen to try it out myself, but it’s still impressive and I can see it being a bit of a game changer at least for regular happy snappers who post on social media.

Thoughts, anyone?

Unless there is a stereographic image you are looking at, the only thing I can think you saw was just a photo with subject isolation. Do you have a source for this image?

It’s in a private Facebook group I’m part of so don’t think there’s any way I could share it here. Subject isolation might be a more accurate description than 3D because it was only the person who seemed to be 3D, not the background...

Just had another look and the subject only really appears 3D as you scroll up & down, not while it’s still. But it’s an interesting effect.

Sorry everyone if this is old news, I hadn’t seen it before and it was striking.

Snip or screen cut it and post that?

Perhaps this is the news you missed?

Since it is manufacturing the two perspectives of what the two eyes would have seen from a single picture, it manufactures data, and doesn't do that well. Take a look at the video and notice the cabinet edge shift. Some of the latest phones do have two cameras though, but right now they are being used to generate the narrow DOF view by merging the results of the two cameras, running at different focus points.

Yes, that article describes what I saw - thanks!

I’ve realised the 3D effect is really only apparent when you scroll around in the photo, so even if I screenshot it here it wouldn’t show properly. (It would also be against the FB group’s rules).

Anyway I recommend people check this out if they’re on that platform, or anywhere else it’s available. It’s very interesting and feels a bit like a glimpse into the future, makes me think we’ll be looking at something far more advanced in 5-10 years time..

Yes the 3D effect isn’t perfect, but it’s interesting and thought-provoking as to how quickly it’s likely to become popular.

I imagine it will develop quite fast to give more and more convincing results.

I am not sure what it does for you, other than catch your attention to the photo and nothing much more than that. It doesn't look 3D to me, just looks like a side to side video effect. After having made stereographic images and knowing how to view them, anything else advertised as 3D just doesn't do it for me.

Example, if you are able to focus beyond your screen or use the cross-eye method, this is truly 3D. But it isn't as glamorous or fun as moving pictures. :)

QUOTED IMAGE

Well fair enough, but the effect in the example I saw did definitely look 3D. It was striking and quite different to anything I’ve seen in a normal still photo.

I think the average social media user will see 3D as good fun, and 2D photos might soon seem rather boring & dated to them. I hope not, because I love our craft and don’t want to see gimmicky effects grabbing even more attention. Judging by the comments I’ve seen on FB so far for this one example, people are impressed and intrigued - and the group is quite unrelated to photography.

I wonder if wedding pros will soon be asked by social media obsessed brides for 3D pics.. -? :-P

IMO, the effect is roughly the same as those images you see at mall kiosks where they look 3d as you move around them. I think photographic art as we know it is safe for quite some time yet. :)

Years ago I was playing around with my new Canon G1 and made this 3-D image with the idea of reproducing what the eye actually sees.

IMAGE: http://community.netidea.com/teekay/temp/3DMerge.jpg
Done by shooting two images, with the green object centered, but the camera moved sideways about 12" between shots. But I don't suppose this is anything like what you are talking about, Savethemoment?

My old Kodak printer came with a 3D maker. It merges two photos taken 3 inches apart and renders them in red and blue. The resulting image can be viewed using Anaglyphic glasses.

These images are interesting, but what I saw on FB was a lot more convincing.. I’m sure you’ll be seeing examples of the same soon, whether you seek them out or not!


Teamspeed I avoid shopping malls like the proverbial plague and haven’t seen what you describe there. I do hope you’re right about the long term survival of 2D images :-)

The facebook tech of taking an image, splitting it into 2 layers and rotating each about a single vantage point has been around a while, but using 2 images. Here is an article from a decade ago. This article below produces a more realistic because it involves taking 2 pictures slight offset from one another. The facebook filter is taking a single image and try to create the same effect, but has to create material that doesn't exist in the image.

Cool. I didn’t know that.. I came straight to POTN when I saw that image because I knew someone would have good background info :-)

Now the latest smartphones and social media make this effect easily available to regular people I’m sure its popularity will spread, and that the tech will continue to improve further.
