Sophie Falkiner - her life in [Nintendo 3DS] pictures

An exclusive exhibition has opened in Sydney this week, for a few days (last day is this Thursday September 22) displaying a range of 3D photographs on Nintendo 3DS consoles from the lives of four fascinating Australians.

The exhibition will showcase stunning images in 3D taken by X-Factor host Luke Jacobz, TV presenter Sophie Falkiner, Jumping Crocodile Cruises owner Tony Blums and acclaimed photographer James Morgan.

The images will explore the previously unseen lives of the four diverse and interesting people. Luke explores behind the scenes of his TV shows; Tony captures the raw power of the crocodiles on his tours; Sophie reveals her life as a mother and presenter; while James captures a range of images including incredible angles of the Harbour Bridge and baby elephants at the zoo.

They all captured amazing images: the Nintendo 3DS console has two outward facing cameras which capture stunning 3D images, allowing any budding photog (even my three year old can do it!) to get creative and have fun.

The exhibition is on at The Argyle, 18 Argyle Street, The Rocks, Sydney.

Sophie Falkiner sat down with a Q&A for Josie's Juice:

1. Tell me what you thought when you were first announced as a Nintendo 3DS ambassador? What speaks to you about it?

I am really flattered, I can remember playing Super Mario when I was younger, and now my daughter also has her own Nintendo 3DS console which she loves. I'm also really proud to stand aside other intriguing Australians to showcase my life in 3D. I love taking photographs so this was a great campaign to be involved with.

2. How do children learn through play, and through Nintendo 3DS?
Well, firstly children under 7 should only view the Nintendo 3DS in 2D, however Nintendo in general make amazing educational games for children including numbers, colours and letters. They also teach children how to concentrate and how to be responsible for something which is great.

3. Have you enjoyed taking photos of your life as mother and TV personality, and documenting it?
I really loved it, Im a happy snapper from way back and having the added bonus of 3D made it all the more interesting and fun to take photos, it added another dimension to my images.

4. What has surprised you most about the Nintendo 3DS and its photo-taking capabilities?
That you don’t need to wear any special glasses, the 3D capabilities are amazing and I loved the different camera modes like black & white and sepia.
