Orchids in 3D

Mike Hyrman's avatar Mike Hyrman

Stunning, high definition, large format, 3D painting like you’ve never seen before, yet it is familiar. Unlike the 3D we have seen in movies, there is no annoying blur and distortion. No special glasses needed, no dual-color filtering. This needs to be seen in person to be appreciated. A common response is “Oh wow! This is really cool!” Since a camera has 1 lens, there is a distinct difference between what we see and what shows in photos. We are accustom to this disparity but my process allows us to view the images with both eyes in a way that creates great focus. We are able to look around and examine the image. There is no way to see this 3D effect using only a computer screen. My approach is inspired by a toy called a View-Master I had as a kid.
