No Photoshop manipulation is involved in the creation of these 3D stereoscopic images. All of the “work” takes place in front of the camera by incorporating special light-painting techniques that present the subject to whatever recording medium is utilized. While most of the images in this exhibit were created on film, digital technology merely substitutes a sensor in place of the traditional light-sensitive emulsion.
