Burder Covers the Royal Wedding


David Burder (FRPS* and FNYSS**) covered the Royal Wedding in London last week. He managed to capture "The Kiss" from a vantage point just 30 meters outside the gates of Buckingham palace, with flags waving and jubilant crowds in the foreground.

Longtime members will remember David's presentation of stereojets and medical imagery at our Fall 2000 event.


Burder shot this auspicious moment using the new JVC GS-TD1BEK 3D Video Camera. He also shot still images using the Fuji W3.


Burder has photographed royal weddings and jubliees since 1981. He collaborated on production of the wonderful lenticular portrait of Queen Elizabeth in 2005. A presentation of some highlights will be given at the annual convention of the The Stereoscopic Society held in Chesterfield, UK, May 13-16.

Special Guest Robert Bloomberg


Lost Temples of Angkor plus two 3D shorts from Robert Bloomberg
Saturday May 21, 3pm, The Asia Society, 725 Park Avenue

Please join us for a stereoscopic afternoon of polarized projection with 3D photographer and producer Robert Bloomberg. The program is perfect for our host location at the Asia Society. The feature show will be "Lost Temples of Angkor," a 30 minute presentation of photographic and cultural studies undertaken in several visits to Cambodia in the past 10 years. The show is co-authored by Marilyn Freund.

"A thousand years ago the great Khmer civilization arose in the jungles of Cambodia and came to dominate all of Southeast Asia. The magnificent architecture and exquisite sculpture of its temples illustrate the myths, religions and history of this remarkable culture. The ruins are now a World Heritage Site, and include Angkor Wat, the largest religious structure in the world."

The event will begin with Bob's amusing "Frogs and Friends" 3D show (7 minutes).

"Frogs as you've never seen them before, with stereo macro cameras providing stunning close-up detail. This show features some of the world's most colorful creatures--from the tiny jewel-like golden mantella to the giant, cannibalistic Argentine horned frog. The "friends" range from a shy chameleon to a friendly whale."

We will also be treated to the New York premiere of "Wish You Were Here: Postcards from Somewhere Else." This 9 minute gem reflects on Bob and Marilyn's years as consummate travelers in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

All 3 shows feature original music scores composed and performed by Robert Bloomberg.

Between shows we will have a reception to meet Bob and Marilyn and discuss 3D work with fellow members of the society. Refreshments will be served.

Bob Bloomberg has been recognized twice by the National Stereoscopic Association with the prestigious Paul Wing Award. He is regional director of the NSA for Northern California and served as theater director for the legendary 2000 NSA convention in Riverside, CA. (the first ever 3D Swim-In!)

Admission to the event is free, but reservations are required. Please RSVP to info@NY3D.org by May 17.
