Stereo Photo Competition Prizes

I have a strong interest in 3D photography. In mid 2009 I joined the Golden Gate Stereoscopic Society which is a local 3D chapter of a national camera club. It's a small group of Bay Area 3D enthusiasts which holds friendly monthly judged competitions. These are my submissions that took prizes. They are not always my favorite images, plus lots of my favorites took no prizes. See my favorite non-winning submissions here.

The small image pairs below are for wall-eyed viewing. The large pairs are for cross-eyed viewing. Resize your browser to scale the large images.

1st place prize. Joe Recto, a good friend of mine learning to ground-handle a paraglider before taking to the skies. A nice introduction to the club competition for me. Thanks, Joe!

3rd place prize, May 2010. This was my girlfriend Mikayla inside a cool underground passage in the Presideo. Most of my stereo photos like this one are done with a normal camera by taking two consecutive shots from different angles. In some cases like this one, that involves asking my subjects to remain motionless between the two shots as any motion will create obvious problems.

Took a prize in April 2010 I believe. I forget which one. This is the front entryway to one of the multi-million dollar houses overlooking the Marina Green.

2nd place prize, September 2010, special category. This month's special category was called "Found/Accidental 3D" which is for any discovered imagery that was not intended to be in 3D. This pair of image captures from a panning shot in South Park episode 1206 was just the thing.
