The most important rule for shooting 3D is known as the 1 to 30 rule, also known as “don’t get too close”. How close you can get to a target subject should be no closer than 30 times the distance between the two camera lenses. The rig that I use for still photography is appropriate for objects at least 6 feet away from the cameras. However, when I went to the Detroit Area Modelers Show I decided to experiment with some close up work by toeing-in the cameras so they would converge at a point about 3 or 4 feet in front of the camera. As you can see, the results aren’t terrible. Not as good as they’d be as if they were shot with a dedicated macro 3D rig, but not bad.
