Ive said it before and I’ll say it again, membership has it’s privileges! I’ve just acquired a lovely assortment of new membership perks that may appeal to the serious stereo-photographers in our community! This handy set of professional photographic targets and charts was generously donated to the P-SCC by Highlighit Studio in NYC, which is located on the 3rd and 4th floors of The Penumbra Foundation in NYC.
The Penumbra Foundation’s website can be found here:
And Highlight Studio here:
These photographic cards are perfect mailers for our worldwide subscribers and fit into a letter sized envelope for shipping.
The full set of 6 cards includes 1 each of:
- 18% grey card
- Lens aberration chart
- Focus chart
- Rectiliniary chart
- Resolution target
- Exposure profile target
They make excellent reference guides for photographic or digital printing, checking accuracies and calibration between pairs of stereoscopic camera lenses, etc.
We’ve been seeing some new worldwide subscribers, thank you 🙂 I’ll be updating the membership page with these and our other mailable perk options, so it will be easy to see in one place and pick which ones you like so we can get the best shipping rate out to you.
We will of course also have these card sets available at our next in person NYC meeting for P-SSC members to take home with them as well! There are lots of sets to go around!
Please visit the Penumbra Foundation’s website! P-SSC Treasurer Sam Dolehas been an educator here for over 10 years and runs the Tintype Studio where he is one of the wetplate portrait photographera. It is a WONDERFUL non-profit institution dedicated to the teaching and preservation of historic photographic processes and is certainly worth a visit if you are in NYC. In addition to Highlight Studio and the Tintype Portrait Studio, there is a brand new gallery space on the 1st floor which has had some monumental shows and exhibitions in the past year, they hold a variety of classes and workshops (both in person and online) a brand new darkroom is about to be unveiled, they hold an impressive variety of open to the public lectures by contemporary photographic artists of all walks, have a beneficial membership program and more!
The PARALLAX-SHIFT Stereo Club is truly thankful to Highlight Studio for their GENEROUS donation and will be scheduling mailers at the start of every month for new worldwide members.
