For Better 3D Pictures, Stick To Natural Light

Nintendo staged a 3D photography demonstration in Sydney this week to show off the camera capabilities of the 3DS. Professional photographer James Morgan took part, and offered up a few basic tips on how to take better shots if you’re using 3D mode. The easiest one to implement? Use outdoor light whenever possible.

“Natural light is much more effective; either going outdoors or simply next to a window helps the quality of image,” Morgain said. Other tips:

  • Keep as still as possible when taking the photo to ensure that the image remains crisp.
  • Make use of additional settings (such as “negative” mode) to add extra flair. (This can also cover up occasional stability problems.
  • Choose appropriate subjects. Animals are particularly good for 3D.
