To show an example of our 3D car photography, we were lucky to find a rare 1964 Ferrari 250 GTO. When the GTO was first introduced in 1962, buyers had to be personally approved by Enzo Ferrari before they were allowed to pay $18,000 for one of the 39 cars made. The 300hp V12 engine helped the car finish 2nd in its racing debut at the 1962 Twelve Hours of Sebring. With its sleek design, it is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Today, the car is highly sought after by collectors with one sold in 2008 to a British collector for over $25 million.

I've always been a huge fan of Rod Serling. He used seemingly average situations to illustrate unique ideas with both style and substance. After every episode of Twilight Zone, viewers were left thinking "I've never thought of that before."
How does the late Mr. Serling relate to my photography business? Well, it might be a stretch but after 11 years of shooting still images (along with the occasional video experiment), I am currently in the middle of my first 3D product shoot for a manufacturer of hair products.
We used a live model to create a series of 52 still images from unique angles and then stitched them together in post-production. It is a less creative, highly technical process that what I am used to. The result is an impressive 3D image that viewers can click/drag back and forth with their mouse. For web designers, it takes up less space than showing multiple angles and you could certainly never show all 52 of them!
Since Blogger does not have the capability to show 3D images, I have set up a separate blog for this work:
Out there is another dimension. My goal is to find as many applications as possible for this unique imaging technology.
