Red/Cyan 3D glasses are needed viewing the photos in this post.
Well, as I
bragged mentioned before, I was away at the end of September on a visit to India. It’ll still be a while before I’m done sorting through all my India photos, and this will probably be the last one I post for a few months. I just liked them enough to post them ahead of time.
The city of Agra, in the Upper Pradesh province of northern India, has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites within it. Best known is the Taj Mahal. However, there is also Agra Fort(also known as the Red Fort of Agra). I’ll go into more detail about the history two sites when my photos are ready, but the amazing thing is that the Taj Mahal is clearly visible from Agra Fort(and vice versa). So, I was standing on one World Heritage Site, looking at another one. I was at the fort near dusk, and the setting sun gave everything a yellow hue. The sun was at the perfect angle(directly behind me) such that the Taj Mahal was completely illuminated- no part of the monument was covered in shadow.
These photos were taken from rampart ‘windows’ in one section of Agra Fort, and the right and left photos were taken about 5-7 metres apart. There was no wind, and little movement near the Taj Mahal, so I didn’t have to take the photos simultaneously.
I also had my full spectrum camera, and got a 3D photo using my Zomei 680 nm filter.
I can’t zoom in as well with my full spectrum camera- To get a similar photo as in the above visual range photograph, I just cropped the area around the Taj Mahal in the photo directly above to digitally zoom in. The cropped photo is a little lower resolution, but still good enough to get a good feel for the 3D aspect of the monument.
I also took a lot of 3D photos on the Taj Mahal grounds, but they’ll have to wait for another time.
The above visual spectrum photo was taken with a Canon SX600 IS camera; the near-infrared photo was taken with a modified Canon Rebel T3i.
