How to Take 3D Photographs
Hey guys! I’m going to show you how to do three-dimensional photographs where you cross your eyes and everything looks three-dimensional, so you call it stereoscopic images. So, what you're going to need is a tripod and a camera, any camera is fine. Put your camera in manual mode and fiddle around with the exposure and the aperture until you get the correct exposure. And then once you got that done, you're going to focus on the object that you want to focus on and then you're going to put it to manual focus so that once you move the camera, it wont try to refocus a different point.
So, you're going to take one picture and then you're going to move your camera and your tripod. You’re just going to shift it over to the left and make sure that that camera’s pointing the exact same way that it was before. So, all you're doing is just shifting it on an access and not moving anything else. And what you do is take your next picture and then you go to the computer.
So now that we have the images on our computer, we’re going in Photoshop. We’re going to click File, Scripts and then Load Files into Stack. This is loading, okay. You’ll get this dialog box, so you’ll click Browse and then you will select the images that you have, the two that you took. So, mine are 6147, the last two. And you don’t need to worry about those, just click OK. And now, what this is going to do is just put both of the pictures inside of one document.
So, there they are, both of them. And this one, the tree is to go left more, this top layer. The tree was more to the left of the frame. So, what I’m going to do is I’m going to click Image, Canvas Size. I’m going to click Percent and then I’m going to make that 200%. I’m going to click this little arrow and what that just did is it made empty space right here, so I can drag and drop this image of the tree and move it over. Now, like I said before, this tree is more to the left of the frame. So, it needs to be on the left side in order to make this work. If you reverse them then the point of view is going to be reversed.
So now, you can click on Tab and then F twice to get it into full screen and now you can cross your eyes and see what it looks like. So, if you just did that, it came out really nicely. But if you're at your own computer, you might want to zoom out a little bit and save it like this because it’s hard to cross your eyes and look at it when isn’t in full screen.
I’m going to show you one more trick and what this trick does is it moves the object closer or further away, or certain areas of your subject. And you’ll see what it looks like after I’ve done showing you. So, we’re going to go up to Filter and click Liquify. And now, it will load and now what we’re going to do is we’re going to make this area of the tree look like it’s further away from us. And then we’re going to make this area of the tree look like it’s closer. So, what we’re going to do is we’re going to shift these pixels to the left and just kind of pop it out a little bit like that and then move these ones to the right. So now, it’s going to look bent when we look at it with our eyes crossed. So, let’s do that right now.
Yup, it looks pretty good. This part right here is sticking up towards us. It looks like it’s coming towards us and this part right here, it looks like its bent and it’s going further away from us. So, that’s the 3D Photography Tutorial. Have a nice day.
