    3d effect - i think you are referring to DEPTH, so that things and objects have shape, have form, rather than looking like they are plastered onto the frame?

    it depends on what you are talking about;

    in many cases it has to do with lighting, if something has sidelight, has shadows, it will have a lot more depth than something with flat lighting.

    in other cases it has to do with composition, the addition of a leading line into the frame can do wonders. good composition for landscapes can also draw one's eye slowly into the frame, such that it perceives relative differences in distance even thoguh it is essentially a 2d format (a picture is 2d).

    NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LENS.

    everything to do with everything else.

    You may be referring to shots that have a sharp subject, but the background is blurred, leading to a 3d-like feel. These are just large aperture lenses, f/2.8 or larger.

    Some lenses do show this characteristic more than others. Carl Zeiss lenses are well-known for excellent contrast, which can help that 3d-like feel.

    i have a really old vivitar lens with 3d filtres
    your images will have some added colours
    but you need to use the 3d specs to see the effect

    yes something like that and sometimes even if the background is not blurred its like you're not looking at a photo. I forget where ive read it but its like a 55 or 85mm with f1.8 or something. thanks for all your info...

    50mm, 85mm and 135mm are good for these kinds shots. Lighting really helps... If the model is illuminated but the background is dark, it'll really pop.

    hmm.. how bout this?



    as wat bro rashkae has said, prime lenses will give the best results, but that does not mean you cant get the effect using a zoom lens. take for example the picture above, its taken using a 16-80mm at f4.5 .. its all a matter of playing with the depth of field, where not only the aperture plays a part, but the distance between the subject, background and yourself plays a vital role as well.

    If you have a chance, try a Carl Zeiss or a leica lens.
    The micro contrast of these lenses will make your subject "pop up" separating the subject and the background in a very subtle manner.

    Its like getting the image quality of the expensive lenses at a much lower price, however its manual focus

    Hold your finger about 15cm away from your nose and try to cross your eye to see the finger. Move the finger forward and backward, keeping your eye on the finger until you notice the images merge to form one image, then remove your finger. Your right eye should be seeing the left image and the left eye see the right image.
