About the Image(s)

A softball friend of mine, Mike, is a rock guy. Most of his trips involve looking for interesting rocks. This one is an amethyst geode.

He brought an assortment of his rocks to a softball game and I photographed them as phantograms. The sheet of paper in the original image was 8-1/2" x 11".

I shot this with my Fuji W3 and used the sheet of paper for phantogram processing.

Another 'stand out' phantogram. A really crisp image with clearly defined depth. Even the pseudo view is comfortable and interesting. It could use a bit of warmth, color wise. The bright white light with the bright white background is a bit sterile. Also it feels a bit crowded in the window.   Posted: 11/09/2023 18:50:00

The strong white background is a little bothering. Its a great image of the Geode. I wonder what it would be like to find such a beautiful rock with crystals inside. Where does one find such rocks?   Posted: 11/17/2023 14:14:00

An excellent phantogram. The image is sharp and great details of the structure. It looks better in anaglyph form. In cross-eye view the stone looks like suspended. Can you explain the reason for that? Is it because of the lack of shadows? It is visible in the original left & right images?   Posted: 11/26/2023 01:30:39

Probably would be better with a fabric background as opposed to plain white sheet of paper. Would be easy enough to mask out the rock and work it with composited background.   Posted: 11/26/2023 12:29:12
