Over the last few months, Tom Anderson (everybody’s first former MySpace friend) has become one of my favourite photographers.
Instagram can sometimes make even the shittiest pictures look OK. Instagram overuse can also cause one to be mistaken for a hat-wearing art school dropout hipster from Brooklyn.
But once in a while, there will be someone who snaps well-lit and beautifully composed pictures and Instagram adds that ethereal, out-of-this-world quality to it.
Don’t be fooled by the 80s Kodak 110 aesthetic. The Lytro cameras use a different type of sensor to capture ‘light fields’ which allow the photographer to focus on a point after the image is taken. Go check out the photo gallery and click around an image to see it in action.
The science makes my head hurt a little but the execution is pretty breathtaking.
