The first stock photography company in the world to offer 3D stock images or customized shoots on assignment basis, ImagesBazaar houses a team of trained professionals to understand your vision and produce your own ‘larger than life’ three dimensional imagery.

Why 3D?

The current success of 3D movies has brought a new consciousness of the power of 3D to marketers. Whereas in the past 3D was a fad that went in and out of popularity, recent technological advances to 3D imaging have established it as a mainstay in the movie industry. 3D is here to stay and it is stimulating the development of related products such as 3D television and computer monitors. Accompanying these technological developments is a seismic shift in people’s consciousness of 3D and their acceptance of the technology.
With this in mind, ImagesBazaar is dedicated to producing the finest quality 3D stock imagery for advertising displays and print production. We have spent the last few years developing 3D photography for commercial applications.

How do we capture 3D images?
When we shoot a 3D image, we use one important feature of human eye – every eye sees a different picture. The difference depends on the distance of every object on the picture from the head of the observer. We won’t do a long explanation – let’s make a short experiment instead. Take anything to your hand – for example a pen. Well, you have a pen in your hand. Point it up. Give it before your eyes to a distance to see it well. Now take a look at any object behind the pen – for example at a computer monitor or at a cup of tea on the desk. The pen should be in the distance about 6 inches from this object. Now close your left eye and shift the pen to place it in a position which you can easily remember. For example before an edge of the monitor. And now open your left eye and close the right one. Do you see the difference? If you did the experiment carefully, you could see the pen shifted to the right (but it hasn’t moved really). No success? Try it again.

From our experiment we can see the left eye sees things, which are in front (for example in front of the edge of the monitor), a little bit more to the right than the right eye. And the things at the back a little bit more to the left (you can try to position the pen behind the edge of the monitor). How to use it for creating a 3D image? If you have one photo from the point of view of the left eye and one photo for the right eye then the only thing you have to do for 3D is – to deliver every photo to it’s eye. How? You can merge the photos in a special way and then to watch them through a special glasses (because without the glasses every eye sees the same). Or one can use the lenticular technology, which doesn’t require 3D glasses to view a 3D image.
