A 2 Dimensional World Shot Through 3 Dimensional Glasses


What happens when 3D glasses are put between the shutter and your film? Dark, rich purples, light oranges, dark shadows, and so many more unpredictable, beautiful effects.

Before I get to sharing how I did it, I’ll let the pictures talk first. Continue on after the break to read a “How to” on what you need and how to do this. As you can see, the results are extremely varied and unpredictable. Just like how Lomography should be.

What you’ll need

  • 2 pairs of 3d glasses (The plastic ones with the semi-clear lenses. not the red/blue ones)
  • Tape (I used masking tape, however clear tape works just as well)

1.) First, take the lenses out of the glasses.

2.) Next do a trial and error process of putting 2 lenses together (I believe that I used two left eyes, but 2 right eyes work also.) until they look purple when you look through them (see picture below.)

3.) Tape them between your shutter and film making sure that you don’t put too much tape otherwise your film will not wind properly. (Again, see picture below.)

4.) Shoot your roll of film and see the results.

NOTE: Shoot the film at double the shutter speed that is recommended. I.E. If a light meter recommends you shoot at 1/250, go a stop down and shoot at 1/125, 1/125 becomes 1/75 etc.

    Why not just put the filter in front of the lens?

    Well my SLR doesn't seem to like things in front of the lens so I put it behind...
