    This happened completely by accident, nd im not sure if it will happen again because i havent really experimented or messed about with the pics. Anyways, i took a snap of a mushroom out in the woods, i tried one shot with a wide aperture to blur the background and one shot with the background in focus, now, heres the cool part; When i look at them on lightroom and move back and forth between the 2 pics as fast as i can the picture looks 3D, similar to them pics you used to look at as a child with the red nd blue glasses. Maybe someone else would want to try and see if this is just a one off.

    I have actually seen something like this done. Someone would take two pictures at different angles for each eyes and you put them right next to each other and cross your eyes and it pops out at you

    if they're not from the same spot, then that could do it...

    Yeah, it's called stereo photography.
    Where two images of the same subject, but one is taken slightly to the right are put side by side and cause an illusion of a 3D image.
    I can never see it though, I'm crap with optical illusions.

    What you've discovered is Wiggle Stereoscopy.

    A great uncle of mine developed a mordern device that takes two photos simultaneously with both lenses an eye width apart. You look at the photos through an especially built viewer which is backlit. He showed me some pictures from the 50 or 60s in Tokyo and New York and I've never seen anything like it before or since. I've never got such a vivid sense of being somewhere when viewing an image - and to see this in images captured from before I was born is quite something else!!!

    Interesting, what my uncle showed me has nothing to do with staring at two images for long enough so something comes through. His was a cemra with two lenses and you viewed the processed image through something akin to binoculars. This perfect 3D image is right there just like you were looking at a scene with both your eyes - no effort required.

    It's the same thing only your changing the focal point with your eyes instead of through lenses.

    Was he one of the inventors of the infamous "ViewMaster"? I actually had one of those red ones when I was a kid. Ah, brings back memories...

    Ah yes I had one of those too. But the ViewMaster had one image which both your eyes looked at. Not 3D at all. That takes me back though...

    Ooh never seen that before. The plastic ViewMaster toy I had as a kid didn't have stereo viewing!
