More information about the Stereogram CD:

This CD contains all the newsletters published  published from May 1997 to June 2017, and cover a variety of information, from film cameras to digital photography. 

The snapshots below show some selected pages. The complete Table of Contents in at the bottom. We guarantee that you will spend many hours studying the contents of this CD. Just think about it: If you read one newsletter a day, you need 202 days to read all the newsletters!

Some of the areas that we have covered extensively: Stereo Realist, Stereo Composition, Stereo slide mounting, Hyperstereos, Macro & Close-Up stereo, Flash in Stereo, Single camera stereo, twin camera stereo, and many others.

From the introduction to the CD:

Greetings, fellow stereo enthusiast!

May 2017 marked 20 years for our stereo club, the Ohio Stereo Photographic Society. Our first meeting was May 6th 1997, and this was soon followed by the first newsletter. I was serving as the Editor and wrote this in the first issue:

"I have called this newsletter Stereogram, from the Greek words στερεό (solid, three-dimensional), and γράμμα  (letter, as in telegram, etc.) So, this is a letter about stereo photography. […] The newsletter should summarize and highlight the activities during the last meeting, present news and information of interest to the club, and give details about the following meeting, motivating the club members to attend. I see the newsletter as a source of information and entertainment, something to look forward to, something that partially justifies the cost of the membership."

I hope that you enjoy this collection of newsletters. For our club members, in addition to being a source of information about stereo photography, they are also a source of the history of our club. If you enjoy the newsletters, consider subscribing to our newsletter.

Thank you for purchasing this CD and best wishes for success in your pursuit of stereo photography!
