World's Most Beautiful 3-D issue No. 3 is now available in it's online and hard copy versions. The third edition of Nick Saglimbeni's landmark 3-D publication was released in June 2013 featuring Estella Warren on the cover.
"After the success of our first two editions of WMB 3-D: World’s Most Beautiful, I wanted to follow up with an unforgettable third issue," said Saglimbeni. "I envisioned a bold cover to round out the trilogy, and yet I knew only an amazing and experienced model could make risqué look both artistic and classy. Estella delivered on all fronts, and she was charming throughout the shoot, despite the provocative and sometimes painful poses. She was particularly excited about being photographed in 3-D. I am eternally thankful to Ms. Warren for our most memorable cover yet."
Behind the Scenes of the Cover Shoot
"Like most, I had first 'known' Estella Warren from seeing her in countless Chanel campaigns, and in Hollywood blockbusters like Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes. My first shoot with Estella was in 2011, when I photographed her for Breast Cancer Charities of America’s iGoPink campaign, and we became instant friends. Her stories make me laugh, and on camera she conjures the most striking expressions with seemingly minimal effort, truly a photographer’s dream."

You can see Estella’s cover, interview and 8-page photo feature in Issue 3 of WMB 3-D. It is available on iPad, iPhone and on Google Play. There are also a limited number of collector’s print editions available in the Saglimbeni Store.
Like the first two editions, issue No. 3 of World's Most Beautiful 3-D merits an Editor's Choice "Must See 3-D™" Award from 3-D Review Online Magazine.

Kol Kid produced an online advertisement showing the toy recognition factor of the View-Master® viewer. The iconic toy is shown as being a "real" toy vs. a kid playing with his parents smartphone. Too bad a search of the Kol Kid website revealed the company doesn't even carry View-Master® products.
The next Stereoscopic Displays and Applications Conference and Exhibition is scheduled for Feb. 2 through 6, 2014 in San Francisco, California. The annual Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference is the world's premier conference for 3-D innovation. It is the largest and longest running technical conference dedicated to the discussion of technical stereoscopic imaging topics.
SD&A celebrates 25 years of 3-D excellence with the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference. SD&A focuses on developments covering the entire stereoscopic 3-D imaging pipeline from capture, processing, and display, to perception. The conference brings together practitioners and researchers from industry and academia to facilitate an exchange of current information on stereoscopic imaging topics. Also, a highly popular conference demonstration session provides authors with a perfect additional opportunity to showcase their work. Large-screen stereoscopic projection is available and presenters are encouraged to make full use of these facilities during their presentations. Publishing your work at SD&A offers excellent exposure, across all publication outlets. SD&A has the highest percentage of papers in the top 100 cited papers in the stereoscopic imaging field (Google Scholar, May 2013). Of particular interest to academic authors, a peer-review process is available, and new in 2014, there is the option of publishing directly in the Journal of Electronic Imaging while presenting at SD&A.
The SD&A conference is part of the IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Symposium held in San Francisco. The conference program includes a range of exciting and useful special sessions, as well as research-based oral and poster presentations. Special sessions include the 3-D Theatre, showing the latest stereoscopic footage and live demonstrations of stereoscopic displays and applications.
The SD&A conference is currently seeking submissions for the February 2014 conference. Further information about the conference is available online.
