iv. How to Capture Quality 3D Photos

STEPS 1,2 - TAKING LEFT AND RIGHT VIEW PHOTOS:

Start out by picking a subject. People are a good place to begin because they tend to pop out in 3-D photos. Place the subject in a setting with a lot of angles and depth (not in front of a flat wall), and about 10 to 15 feet from the camera. Hold the camera steady by securing your elbows in your chest and snap the first picture (left eye view). Make sure your subject stays very still, then step just a tiny bit to the right, about the distance between your eyes or less, and take the right view picture
   
 
 TIP 1: When you slide over for the second shot, you -- and most importantly your camera -- should move in a parallel line.

TIP 2: Normally, the camera should be moved about 6cm or 2.5 inches to match the average interocular distance between human eyes. For closer objects, move the camera less between photos. For more distant objects, move it more.
 
STEP 3: ALIGN THE TWO PHOTOS (USING THE BUTTONS UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT)
You are almost done. But first the left and right eye images need to be better aligned. This step is crucial because it allows the right view picture to be shifted over while the left-view picture is still visible. Pick a point in the center of the picture to match up; for example, if a person is your subject, eye pupils are a good target. Zoom in on the target by pressing the magnifying button icon in the tool bar. Using the up, down, left and right buttons, slide the left image over until your target matches up and no longer shows any rings of color. In other words, the overall goal in this step is to limit the colored tints as much as possible.
