The National Museums Scotland has launched a free online course on Stereoscopy.
Running 1 Aug – 14 Aug 2016 – 3 hours per week.
Still time to join – Discover more here: http://nms.ac.uk/stereoscopy.
On this free online course, we will examine the rise of stereo photography and the work of two pioneering photographers – the Scotsman, George Washington Wilson, and the Englishman, Thomas Richard Williams.
We will explore how the stereoscope, originally created by inventor Sir Charles Wheatstone to investigate human binocular vision, was improved by scientist Sir David Brewster, to become a vital, elaborate drawing room essential. To enjoy stereo photography, you usually need a stereoscope or stereo viewer, but you can enjoy this course without one.
