|I can take high resolution, actual 3D images of your wedding day which are just like the 3D images you see at the movies. You will need some kind of 3D monitor or TV to be able to view them, and the 3D glasses that come with those screens. They look really amazing and quite literally add another dimension to your memories. Because of the science of 3D viewing, 3D images actually appear a little sharper than ordinary 2D images because there is twice the amount of visual information in each image.|
|How do you take them?|
All 3D images are produced in basically the same way, using two slightly different images from different angles. Our eyes always see two slightly different images and our minds put these two images together to give the illusion of depth that we take for granted on a daily basis.
Your 3D wedding images will be taken with a special double camera rig that takes two high resolution images at the same time from different angles. These images are then put together in a computer program to form a third image which can be viewed in many different ways, as you can read about below. Taking 3D images is more complex than ordinary 2D images, and literally a whole new dimension needs to be taken into account. There are mathematical formulas for the correct sense of space, and techniques for getting the correct angles and exposures that are different to ordinary photography. The skill of a professional is being able to take these new parameters into account whilst still concentrating on all the usual important things like lighting, composition, creativity, depth of field, shutter speed, etc. You dont have to worry though, as far as you are concerned, it will be just like ordinary photography to you, though perhaps slightly slower in set up time. All this simply means I start the day with 3 coffees instead of the usual two.
Of course I can't show you the amazingness of 3D over the internet just yet,
but can you imagine these images in 3D?
|So how do we view these 3D pictures?|
There are many ways to view 3D images. In the past red and blue glasses were commonly used to separate the two different images for each eye.
Today new technology is bringing high definition 3D images to our computer and television screens, even our phones. As well as a 3D capable monitor, at this stage you will need a software package and electronic 3D glasses, not like the old red and blue cardboard ones.
It is highly likely that as this new technology competes for market positions, many new systems and screens will arrive, becoming ever cheaper as is the usual way with new technology.
There are even ways to view 3D images without 3D glasses. The effect is quite impressive, though not everyone is able to do it. If you want to see if your eyes can do it without 3D glasses, click HERE and give it a go.
As well as that, technology is working on ways to develop screens and monitors that don't even require glasses. There are some examples of these already available.
|Do you take the entire wedding in 3D?|
|No, I'll just select some scenes from the day that would be suited to be viewed as 3D images.|
|Will we still have 'normal' wedding photos?|
|Yes, you will still have all the great 2D wedding photos you would normally have, the only difference is that you will also have some cool 3D images.|
|The Orchid package currently includes 20 3D images, but you can have 3D images with any package you choose. 20 3D images for $250.|
|A brief history of 3D|
Believe it or not, 3D technology has been around for 170 years. You may have seen a device called a Stereoscope in antique shops. Using one of these devices, the viewer looked through two lenses much like binoculars and viewed two photographic images on a card. The result was a true 3D image, though the quality was limited to the quality of the photographs at the time which were usually sepia or black and white.
3D imagery again became popular in the 1950's when it was all the rage in movies wearing coloured glasses.
Now a third revolution in 3D is currently underway with everything from movies to sports events to computer games, which is enabling us to view a new world of high definition 3D images on our computer screens and televisions.
