Using Two Nikon D90s to Shoot 3D Portraits
May 26, 2010
By Dan Havlik, PDN's Technology Specialist
Entitled "Stereo Portrait Project," the show is the work of visual artists Alex Fry and Jamie Nimmo who mounted two D90s closely together on a custom wooden camera rig to emulate the distance of a pair of human eyes.
They shot the portraits using three synced SB900 Speedlight flashes and then sorted the pairs of photos in Apple Aperture.
The shots were exported to Nuke, a compositing software, where final tweaks were performed before they were combined into Anagylphic 3D images. (Yes, that means you have to wear those funky two-color glasses to get the 3D effect when viewing these portraits.)
Along with the show, which will run at the Oh Really Gallery in Sydney until June 8th, the artists have produced 25 books of the portraits on Blurb.
