Researchers Develop Method for Getting High-Quality Photos from Crappy Lenses

by sbrothier
There are many reason high-quality lenses cost as much as they do (and in some cases that is quite a lot), and one of them is that high-end lenses use many specially-designed elements that are perfectly-positioned to counteract aberrations and distortions.

Lytro changed photography. Now can it get anyone to care? | The Verge

by sbrothier
Lytro's ultimate, simplest goal is to turn the physical parts of the camera — the lens, the aperture, the shutter — into software. If it can do that, the camera hardware itself becomes secondary; it would take nothing more than a cheap lens and a sensor to build a light-field camera.

Embracing Ambiguity in Israel

by sbrothier
He was born in France 55 years ago to descendants of Sephardic Jews from Algeria and Ashkenazi Jews from Russia. His parents survived World War II — his father in hiding and his mother with the resistance.

The dangerous, beautiful life of a Lego minifig photographer | The Verge

by sbrothier
UK-based photographer Andrew Whyte specializes in dramatic light art and long exposures of the night sky, but some of his most striking work involves helping an inch-high fellow photographer get a good shot. For over a year, Whyte has been shooting what he calls the "Legography" series, starring a Lego minifig with a bulky black camera and a penchant for exploration. The minifig travels with Whyte, waiting to be posed scaling a fence, watching the sunrise, or playing tourist in London.

Airport Security Staff are Going to Hate Wearable Cameras

by sbrothier
What follows is the story of my brush with Homeland Security today while entering the United States a few hours ago. It was all my fault, but I get the feeling I was an early example of something that staff in airports around the world will have to deal with regularly as wearable data collection devices become more common…

A Cool Photo Project: Young and Old Swap Clothes | Next Avenue

by sbrothier
Far more than just bits of fabric we use to cover our bodies, the clothes we wear and the ways we combine them convey a great deal about our personal tastes, lifestyles, perspectives and values, not to mention our society’s broader cultural mores.

Hester Scheurwater

by sbrothier
The Self-obsessed photo series, which explores Hester Scheurwater's desires, obsessions and fears sparked media hype in the Netherlands. The explicit imagery shocked many and fueled debate on the sexualization of society. But the editor of Scheurwater’s first book of photography, SHOOTING BACK, defends her work. Zurich-based curator, writer and contemporary photography specialist Walter Keller compares it to Rober Mapplethorpe’s sexually-charged imagery or Francesca Woodman’s erotic mise-en-scene.”Scheurwater’s visual self-explorations extend the boundaries of another main topic in art history and photography – the pose. But in her pictures, model and artist are one,” says Keller. “Yes, this is sexually explicit work, but even more, it is a curious and smart research about herself, where the artist looks at herself from both sides of the mirror.” www.hesterscheurwater.com All images on this website are copyright protected.

Unlimitxt - Dennis Rito

by sbrothier
Mobile phones are impacting societies around the world. Here in the Philippines, text messaging is considered to be the most exploited service due to its affordability, convenience and immediacy. According to industry estimates, 2 billion text messages were sent everyday from the 60 percent of the population of 90 million who uses mobile phones. This has led to the popular notion of the Philippines as the “texting capital of the world”
