For quite a while I did not understand the need for a blog, especially since I have my own web site and I can always post my thoughts there. But lately I have started to see the advantages of blogging so I decided to try it.
I like to write about stereo photography and share my thoughts with others. Back in the “good old days” I did this by posting in the photo-3d email list. Gradually, the interests and the characters of the list changed, so I felt the need to start new lists for my specific equipment/interests, for example RBT S1, RBT 101 stereo projector, Stereo Realist, etc.
One problem for me is that most stereo photographers are moving away from film. Most discussions in photo-3d are about digital stereo photography. I have no intention to stop using film, so I feel a bit like a dinosaur and I hesitate to post in photo-3d. There is of course the film3d discussion list which I own, but the audience in this list is small and overlaps with photo-3d.
Lately I have been experimenting with new equipment and techniques. Where do I post my ideas and thoughts? I have a story to tell and I feel that these email discussion lists are just not the right place to do it. So I have decided to start a 3d blog and post them here!
