Stereoscopic Analog Photography
The following compositions put an unconventional spin on traditional stereoscopic photographs. To create these, I simultaneously capture four exposures of a single scene using a Nishika N8000 35mm camera. Due to the positioning of the four lenses, the camera captures each exposure from a slightly different perspective. I can simulate a 3D effect by aligning the four developed images around a single convergence point and animating them in Adobe Photoshop. I've included a brief video tutorial below. 

To create the most prominent 3D effect, some keys include:

After getting the hang of this effect, I challenged myself
 to use it to create a visually consistent series of imaginative and captivating compositions. Throughout the series, my intended themes include simplicity, symmetry, repetition, and perspective. I sketched and animated the white lines (not featured in the actual photographs themselves) in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop after finalizing the 3D effect.

HIGH WIRES
The wires in this photograph capture the lines of perspective beautifully. Also, I experimented, using the moon in the background as my convergence point. I love the outcome.
NATIONAL STATE BANK
Again, added the white lines to emphasize the lines of perspective and bring out the parallax effect. The reflections on the front and left side of the clock face make this composition much more intriguing. 
SHOOT THE GAP
The repetition of many different objects (the support pipes) on many different planes in this photograph help create a clearer parallax effect. The convergence point is in the center of the background, where the white line originates, and makes for a good deal of movement. This further emphasizes the effect.
MANDOFIRE
The color. The contrast. The stillness and glow of the fire. The reflection on the mandolin. Everything worked out in this photograph.
