This is StereoManila

Like 3D photography? My other photo blog is devoted to film and digital 3D photography. Do check it out.

I found this yesterday in a local sale bin. Though I’m no fan of American history, this was too good to pass up.

The shots in this book are presented n red-cyan anaglyph, converted by the authors from the original stereo pairs to different result. Most of the shots render beautifully when seen through 3D glasses, with a few bad apples that may cause dizziness and migraine.

Went to Boracay over the weekend to attend a wedding. I took this as an opportunity to bring along my trusty Nishika N9000 lenticular 3D camera. Here are a few shots from the beach, both in stereogram and wigglegram. (red-cyan anaglyphs to follow)

By the way, in case you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been updating as promised, I’ve been busy on other things, namely:

  • the day job
  • a new magazine project
  • yet another new magazine project
  • my new photography blog

Street Lamp from StereoManila

The new blog is called This is StereoManila, which you can access via the link or, if you’re so inclined, via http://www.stereomanila.com, whatever floats your boat. This is where I’ll be placing all my 3D stereo photographs, which will mostly be shot in digital using the Loreo lens I bought a while back. If you’re into 3D photography and stereoviews, then do follow the blog via Tumblr.


There are certain books which you just have to have. For some, this could be a dog-eared and doodled-upon copy of Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham or a neon-highlighted family Bible or (barf) a hardbound special limited edition of Twilight.

For enthusiasts of 3D or stereo photography – and I count myself among that ilk – there is A Village Lost and Found, written by Brian May and Elena Vidal. Describing itself as “An annotated tour of the 1850s series of stereoscopic photographs ‘Scenes in our Village’ by T.R. Williams,” the book is exactly what it says it is. A collection of stereo images from the dawn of photography is presented here, painstakingly curated and dissected by May and Vidal in a lavish 240 page volume. (more…)

So last Sunday I took a walk around the Tahanan Village park to test the Loreo 3D lens. It was a pleasant late afternoon, a bit of a nip in the air with the sun already low in the sky.

The usual groups of parkgoers were there, the Korean football players, the ultimate frisbee fanatics, the dog walkers and the au pairs with their wards, lots of different folks, doing the many different things you can do in a park.

Here are a few shots in both anaglyph and stereo pair formats. To view the anaglyphs in 3D, you will, of course, need red-cyan 3D glasses. For the stereo pairs, you will need a special viewer, or, you can try to free-view them, a la Magic Eye posters.

As promised, here are the photos from my Loreo 3D Lens in a Cap unboxing. Descriptions to accompany the photos.

A clean white box, nondescript. but packed inside with stereo goodness. The lens comes with a pair of lens caps and a carrying pouch.
