Make Your Own 3D Camera

Have ever thought of taking 3D Photos?

It’s pretty easy, and fun to do.. also, very cheap.

What do you need?

  • Two Disposable Cameras
  • Duct Tape

Tape both Cameras like this photo:

(one of them should be upside-down)

disposable

Since the lenses are about 4 inches apart and human eyes are usually 2.5 to 3 inches apart, the 3D effect won’t be perfect. And besides, it’s a disposable camera, so treat it as a toy and just have a good time.

Tips:

  • Having subjects in the foreground and the background will show more of the 3D effect.
  • Just like any good 3D horror movie, the best shots show something coming out of the picture at you.
  • Remember that the cameras won’t focus closer than about three feet.
  • If you need to use flash, turn on the flashes for both cameras and expect things to come out a little weird.

Happy Shooting! :)

27 Exposures In Sharm el-Sheikh!

iShoot film; and I will always do. On my last trip to Italy I purchased “Kodak – Single Use Camera” that has 27 exposures and using 400 ISO film by Kodak.

Last week I went to Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt to enjoy summer and break the routine I had and relax a bit away from the city and work.

I took the “Single use camera” with me; the results are astonishing.

The colors are just amazing..

Take a Photograph..

This might just be photography explained.

Nothing pretty much; these days I’m just taking it off from Photography. Like a vacation. I have so many plans and projects that will be delayed for awhile.

Anyways, don’t stop shooting :)

[Project] Matchbox Pinhole Camera + Results

In the previous post I wrote about a tutorial (How to create Pinhole Camera from a Matchbox). Well, I created mine (IT FEELS AWESOME) and I tested it with “Kodak TMAX 400 35mm film”. I feel happy with the results! :-)

في التدوينة السابقة تم شرح طريقة عمل كاميرا بدائية بإستخدام علبة أعواد الثقاب (الكبريت). طبعاً ما قدرت أصبر، وبالويك اند طبّقت الدرس وصنعت كاميرتي البدائية بنفسي! شعور قوي الحمدلله، واستخدمت فيلم Kodak TMAX 400 للتجربه، النتائج بالأسفل.

The Camera:

After using the film, taking the film roll to the Darkroom:

Some of the Negatives (total of 51 exposures approx. 24x24mm) scanned using Canon MP140 at 600 dpi:

Some of the Final Resulted Photos – After Photoshop-ed:

A truly fun experiment, so sad I was on a hurry while shooting. I couldn’t wait any longer, so I was shooting holding the Pinhole Camera by my hand.

Most of the negatives have my fingers on/or they are shaky!
