If you happen find yourself in Sydney, Australia on May 27th, you should check out an interesting new show that features 3D portraits created with two Nikon D90 cameras.
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.)
