Experimenting with Living Pictures
/ September 11, 2012
For photographers, capturing a perfect moment -- with the right lighting and razor-sharp focus on one point in the frame -- is an art. And if those things don't align correctly, the moment passes forever.
Now, however, there's a new way to capture these moments -- through "living photos." Living photos are taken by a specific camera -- the Lytro camera -- which captures "all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space," according to the company's website. What this means for these images is that focusing isn't so important in the moment -- it can be done after the picture is taken.
Since launching earlier this year, Lytro users have captured many images, and the Huffington Post has found the 23 most amazing Lytro photos so far. Here's just one (which happens to be my favorite). Click on the photo to re-focus.
