Hairy Dog 3D

Hairy Dog 3D

I did a little experimental photography with my puppy dog. I shot two photos of the same subject (that would be Hairy dog) but from two slightly askew positions. Once the images were loaded on my computer I opened them in Photoshop. I copied the second photo and pasted it as a new layer on the first photo. Next I needed to align the images. Using the transparency slider, I adjusted the second photo (top layer) until I could see the bottom photo showing through.

Now I could shift the top photo until the center of the two images were fairly close. Then I cropped the image so it fit closer to my subject and tossed out the now mismatched edges.

To create the animation I switched over to ImageReady and created two frames. The first frame showing the bottom layer and the second frame showing the top layer. I played with the frame delay until I found a combination I liked. In this example, 0.1sec for the first and 0.2sec for the second. Finally, I saved the image as an animated gif.

And now I have a nice 3D image of Hairy dog!

I LOVE it! We have the cutest dog in the world. The animation is especially great because of the eyes. Makes me want to reach out and hug and squeeze him!

Is Hairy Dog going to Helleyer this weekend? Maybe the Wild Dingo will be there. She likes boy dogs!

That is so great. I've always been a fan of 3-D (movies, viewmaster, etc.) I recently read an article in the New Yorker about perception. One of the things it said is that the Parallex view, i.e., one moving image instead of binocoular vision, is an effective way for a one-eyed person to percieve depth.
I recommend you send this image to Oliver Sachs.
