How to take stereo photos with a single lens camera:  (These are simple directions).  Set up your shot, noting position of your main object in the view finder. Take 1st picture  Step sideways 4 to 6 inches and line up main object at the same level as in the previous shot.  Take 2nd picture.  Like I said, those are simple directions.  You can be more scientific about positioning, use a tripod, set up a camera slide, etc...

More hints

  • Using a film camera - Vertical shots  work best for parallel viewing when developed as a 4x6 print or smaller.
  • For x-eyed viewing, it doesn't matter whether vertical or horizontal.
  • Remember that the "right" side shot will be on the right and left on left for parallel viewing.
  • For x-eyed viewing, switch position of prints so that right print is left of the left print.
  • Digital camera and a good graphics program is all you need to make your // and X-eyed sets.
  • Parallel sets should be no wider than 8 inches at 72dpi
  • X-eyed sets can be up to screen width at 72dpi.
  • Having an object up close and off to the side of the subject, gives more depth - note tree limbs on right side in the snow picture above
