There're specific cameras which house two lenses for it and most come from these. Otherwise simply moving the camera plane slightly. Also see: stereoscopic photography>>3340952>how ARE smartphone cameras these days?
Absolutely fantastic for quick snapshots and selfies>are they even worth my attention if I use actual cameras?
No, and never really will be unless you don't really care about the photos you're taking>>3341046
Works great for specific things like video and some prints>>3341379
Watch the first results on youtube for product photography. They'll teach you plenty>>3341463
Look up a png? What are you talking about?
If you're trying to put overlays on your photos just use layers>>3341538>just a stock pic taken with an LG G5
Don't. Withl ess than 300DPI and basic resolution your prints are going to be shit unless they're absolutely tiny or far away>>3341672
fstoppers tend to show the actual interactions and shoot in most of their tutorials. Otherwise getting in on a shoot is far better as you'll pick it up faster. Alternatively, plain old practice. In my experience I've realised 95% of directing is about building rapport and being comfortable with each other in the 10 minutes~ before the shoot and being positive throughout, that and understanding that the first 100 shots are going to be garbage for 90% of the people you shoot regardless
