3D City: Pillow Fight

Another Valentine’s Day, another massive Pillow Fight in Justin Herman Plaza. This year I brought my Nimslo camera and a roll of Fuji’s 800 ISO film. These explosions of feathers and streaks of light are what I came back with. Since this is my fifth installment of 3D City, I’ve also attached a little bonus image at the bottom. It’s an unedited scan, so you can see how the shots look straight off my camera.

And here’s an un-edited scan from my Nimslo. As you can see, it takes 4 side by side shots simultaneously, which I line up and turn into animated gifs. Every 3D pic on a Nimlso camera takes up the space of 2 normal 35mm shots (using 4 half frame shots). I’m working on making a little how-to video for aspiring 3D photogs too, if anyone is interested. As I mentioned before, this is my 5th column in this year long project, so I’ve decided to launch a small Patreon to help cover the cost of film. For those not familiar with Patreon, it’s like a crowdfunded tip jar to help keep projects like this going. If you are interested in helping, you can check it out here.

    I remember when this was really trendy back in ’09. And then MIA started using them to promo an album and we were all like OVER IT. http://www.aissetou.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/MIA_2.gif

    Maybe you guys should get into this thing called “Tilt-Shift.” It was the next flavour-du-jour for the hipster film world.
