Out of focus

Photography may still be in the middle of the digital revolution, but there is another era right around the corner. One that may just destroy the art of photography.

The Lytro light-array camera features a plenoptic sensor which collects directional data that allows software to recognize when objects are on different planes. This makes it possible for the audience to manipulate depth of field by just clicking on the part of the image they want to focus on. Don’t believe me? Try for yourself:

Crazy, right? This may just spoil some of the art of taking great pictures, but think of the possibilities on the publishing side!

Haven’t seen enough?
