3D Photography and Anaglyphs

IV. Do it With Your Students

Can you see in 3D?

Show students the anaglyphs you have prepared and let them use 3D glasses for viewing them. Ask them to:

  1. Put your hand over your right eye and look at the image.
  2. Now, put your hand over your left eye and look at the image
  3. Look at the image with both eyes

Then ask them to work with a partner as they try to answer the following questions:

  • Can you explain how these images were made?
  • What is the role of the color filters?
  • Why do you think there appear to be two images superimposed on each other?

Looking for more? Look at the list of 3D, anaglyph, and filter resources in V. Resources.
