Austrian photographer Markus Hofstätter has published plenty of interesting wet plate projects. In his latest project, he brings together large format wet plates and stereo 3D photos. This was Markus’ most time-consuming project so far. It took him working six months to finish it, the first three just modifying his camera so it can take stereographic images. But judging from the results – it was well worth it.
3D GIFs used to be rare finds back when Tumblr was still relevant. But ever since Mura Masa used 3D photos in his 2016 What If I Go? music video, they were suddenly everywhere. The technique is so popular now that people even call it the “Mura Masa” effect. The secret behind these hypnotic images is the Nishika N8000 stereo camera. It has four lenses that shoot the same scene all at the same time to create the 3D magic. In their latest video, Mango Street’s Daniel and Rachel wanted to see if they can recreate the effect digitally. So will analog trump digital in their little experiment? Let’s take a look and see which medium wins.
