Interests
I had a lot of fun making that last set of cards for a university assignment. I think I'm going to go out of my way and make a full deck of cards.
It's not all that fun to do though. The entire process is done by hand. There's a lot of templating, test stripping, careful alignment, making two identical prints (including additional burning and dodging), washing, pressing, trimming, cutting out the cards and dry mounting it all together. The results however always seem to turn out quite well. I'm displaying and viewing the finished work with a rather authentic 19th century Stereoscope I bought for $20 and had to repair. My first batch received a lot of high praise. I'd love to continue doing these however it's just so time consuming. On average it takes one stereogram two and a half hours to go from negatives to finished card. It would be amazing if I had a better and faster way to make these prints. The Nishika camera also gives me a variety of problems mainly attributed to its fixed 1/60th shutter speed and three aperture settings. There isn't even a Bulb setting so low light photos must be taken using higher ISO films.
Anyways, keep an eye out in the next few weeks. I'm both excited and fearing the work that will need to be done.
