Innocent Glamour

One of the things that I like most in doing photography is the opportunity too meet new people and build friendships with people from around the world. That's the beauty of London actually.And the fact that after a few years it will be someone in France, or maybe Spain (definitely in Spain) or Poland, Russia or Italy who will discover the photos I made for them when they were young and restless in this troubled London and will remember me with a photogenic smile on his or her face.
Last week it was Ola's turn to pose for me and we did a great job together. Although she is a little bit shy she has her own charm and such an expressive beautiful face.

This are my favorite ones. And the followers are :

Can you choose the focus point after shooting? Yes, you can!

Now with the DSLR cameras photographers have to select the focus point and depth-of-field before pressing the shutter to define an area that's in focus. As we all know, mistakes can happen but now they can be repaired and the days when you've been frustrated that you've placed the focus point on the nose instead of the eyes, or you got the background instead of the model will be long gone.
Soon it will be possible to take one photo and decide later, after downloading the photo, where you'd like the point of focus to be. An idea that could revolutionize photography. And how is that going to happen ?
One company from US is expected to launch Lytro, a camera that allows you to focus retrospectively by recording with a new type of sensor the color,intensity and vector direction of every ray of light.This radical technology will be incorporated in a "Light Field " camera, being comparable more with a point-and-shoot camera than with a DSLR but his the creators have some ambitious plains with this new technology which is believed to be the most significant shift in photography since the transition from film to digital.The extra data in the light passing through the lens enables Lytro to memorize multiple points of focus in one image and allows the user to change the final look of each photo after it's been taken.

We are now keen to see if the words of investor Marc Andreessen who stated " Lytro's breakthrough technology will make conventional digital cameras obsolete" will come true or maybe how soon this will be?

How much would you want to be paid for giving up on Internet for all your life?

Would you be able to give up on your phone also or your IPAD? And how much do they worth to you? As they say in this video maybe you are richer than you think you are. Think about it. After you'll see the video you would want to think a little bit more on this.

As for myself I couldn't give up on Internet very easily. I am almost addicted( or can I say almost? I speak with my friends on Messenger, I see regularly updates from my friends life on Facebook, I find my clients on Internet,I am cooking on blogs recipes, I buy tickets, clothes, books etc. and I have all day long the biggest library in the world if I want to find or learn new stuff.Do you want more? I am sure you don't need because you are doing much more things on Internet than me.Finally I think that, even if I would like to give up it won't be possible, I would still have to interact with it some how.
