If you're anything like us, focus is a problem, certainly in life and occasionally in photography. Only if you could write a prescription for Adderall for your camera. Or can you?
The Lytro camera is a bit of tech that gives you a helping hand in the photo focus department. While other cameras and software do this by finding the sweet spot of the photo, like faces, Lytro decides to just focus on everything. You get to pick what you want in focus later and you can change your mind -- again and again. Lytro really subscribes to the motto shoot first, ask questions later.
In age of built-in cell phone cameras, Lytro can seem pricey ($399 for 8GB/350 pictures, $499 for 16GB/750 pictures), but this week the company set out to show off the worth of the depth-of-field wonders of the camera. People on Twitter submitted their favorite regular flat old photos and the company "Lytro-ized" them using claymation models, kinda like MTV's "Celebrity Deathmatch." They were looking for weird and wacky, and we in Baltimore know a thing or two about weird and wacky. So the editors at BaltTech and The Darkroom sent them some Bawlmer Hons to "Lytro-ize."
The result is really fun. Feel free to zoom in and out on all house coats, beehive hairdos, cats eye glasses and fluffy slippers.
