Flickr here I come….

Flickr, Photography
Okay, so over the last few weeks I've set my CC card on fire and built a small photo studio at home. So from now on you'll find out more about my other hobby on nerdlogger as well, Photography. Maybe I'll register photologger.com or something once I accumulate enough studio shots. As always my travel photography is hosted separately here as a result of their sheer size. Here is post #1 - A really old (and bloody heavy) IBM typewriter my folks have at home. It's broken, but is kinda cool in a nostalgic way.

Adobe’s Sharp Shooter…..

adobe, Photography
No more blurry shots. That's what Adobe wants you to drool over while they perfect their Light-Field Camera. Standard cameras allow light to travel through a single tunnel/lens and project it onto the film plane/capture device. Light-Field Cameras do the same, except they use 19 lenses to capture the scene and record it onto 19 shots that capture different focus distances. This frees the photographer to -- in their digital darkroom -- develop the picture and focus selectively using a "focus brush", allowing them to bring details from both forground and background into focus. More detail here.
