I started playing around with my simple point and shoot camera by taking a picture from one angle, moving it to the left a few inches (using my glasses as a guide), and then taking another picture. Next, I used the directions at the bottom of this page to build a 3D image in Adobe Photoshop. The whole process turned out to be quite easy. Here’s a sample:
I did all of this using a pair of 3D glasses I made from a clear piece of plastic with two sharpied squares (red and blue). This works quite well if you have a bit of an imagination, however, eventually you’ll get a killer headache as the color filtering is nowhere near perfect.
So I got two pairs of kickass 3D glasses.
