I spent weeks reviewing and deciding which images would make my final four for the upcoming International 3D stereo photo competition in Vienna. This is the last year of the competition; and if I’m going to pull this rabbit out of my hat, I need to grab it by the scruff of its neck and…Read More

One last chance at a 3D photo competition in Austria
In 2020, I submitted some film-generated stereoscopy images to an international 3D stereo photo competition in Vienna, the Photographische Gesellschaft in Wien. Unfortunately, the photos were not selected for the show. Fast forward to 2023. I’ve got a more stable setup with some killer stereoscopic images, and once again, the 3D stereo photo competition is…Read More
Chuck’s Best Photos of 2022
With tomorrow being a WHCL “Nightowl Radio Show” playlist, and Saturday designated as a “What’s Up in the Neighborhood” blogroll recap, this is essentially the last day of 2022 for me to share my personal recap of ten Chuck Miller-captured photos and my feelings about capturing them. So if you’ll indulge me on this wee…Read More
Christmas Eve at a covered bridge
It’s Saturday morning. Snow on the ground and snow in the air. This is supposed to be a time of cheer and celebration. Holiday and harmony. Unfortunately … this year I’m spending Christmas with myself. Ugh. Well, maybe I can make something out of this. Something worthwhile. Something that takes away the emptiness. You know…Read More
Here comes Santa Claus (and the Green Island Power Authority)
I received this notice from my community Facebook page. Green Island still treats the holidays with joy and amazement. You can’t tell me Santa Claus doesn’t exist, especially when you can see his travel route printed right in the Facebook community page. Essentially old Saint Nick will travel along the major thoroughfares in our illustrious…Read More

It’s my homemade View-Master® compatible reel and viewer. Wanna see? Yes you do. That’s right. These shots from my…Read More
Insomnia spurs creativity.
During my Sunday photo shoot of the Saratoga, Corinth & Hudson Railway train, I set up my gear so that the train would pass across Route 9N. Now when a train bisects a road, the railroad crossing sign flashes and a little gate drops. And lights flash on and off as the train passes. And…Read More
I need true synchronization! TRUE SYNCHRONIZATION!!
As I get closer to my planned 3D stereoscopy goals, I have all the tools I need. Two identical Nikon Df cameras (well, one’s black and one’s silver, but other than that..) Two identical 50mm f/1.8D lenses. A mounting rail that will keep both cameras level and parallel when shooting. But I’m now running into…Read More
More Saratoga, Corinth & Hudson railway photo practice
This is realistically the last decent weekend for fall foliage. All the leaves are dying off. The tree colors are muting. But I wanted to get more practice with my stereoscopy project, and when you’ve got a tourist railroad a short drive away, you PRACTICE like you’re auditioning for Carnegie Hall. Yesterday morning. I scoped…Read More
For those who are having trouble viewing my stereoscopy photos…
I apologize to you. It was truly not my intention to give you complete headaches in viewing my stereoscopy images from last weekend’s photo shoots. So in the interests of helping you see the stereoscopic view without having to relax your eyes or cause you a headache-inducing brain bang … Here’s some of my shots…Read More
