A new toy!

After I had sold my 5D and spent almost a year, relying only on the iPhone’s 6 and 5C camera.. I thought of getting a Fujifilm and give it a try!

Can you think of a better combination?

So, I’ll start using it and testing it.. so far so good, I LOVE IT! Small size, very light and the battery is good too!

So, let’s hope I’d experiement the camera more.. and perhaps, post some useful tips too.

Happy shooting! :)

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! :)
