So by now many of you should have heard of Lytro, if you haven’t, you should go here. There is even a picture for you to play with.
So yes, revolutionary isn’t it? it changes so much for Photography.
I guess this is good and bad.
The obvious reasons for being good is it help saves those precious time you delay on to focus on your subject. Never getting anything out of focus again (especially duing your holidays). Those special moments will forever be sharp and focused.
However, I honestly feel that photography is slowly losing it’s lure. For what used to be an art, something it takes years to perfect has now become a simple shoot first think later. Yes, you can now shoot without thinking. Photoshop has revolutionarize photography and digital art by a mile, now with Lytro, photography probably is a lost art.
Our generation has been reduced to a generation that can act first before thinking. This isn’t what I grew up to, we used to measure the consequences and the after effect of our actions before we act. Gone were those days.
Well, you can’t stop the future. Just got to embrace it.
