Algorithmic Photography

For a long time I have been interested in thinking about what would happen if cameras could do more than capturing a somewhat realistic representation of the incoming light through a lens. I have experimented with long exposures, slit-scans and other ways of interpreting the world. But what if we could express a photographic vision in an algorithm we could use when capturing images? We already have the tools to retouch images in post production but I am interested in finding out what happens when I implement an idea in an algorithm before any light is captured and then apply it in an environment....

I want to see how shapes appear in long exposures when they are lit by a computer controlled laser beam. Check Flickr for updates.

Slit-scan Photography (Stockholm Geekmeet presentation)

Last night, Robert Nyman hosted yet another successful Geekmeet in Stockholm. I got one of the lightning talk slots and decided to skip my planned presentation and instead show some of my experiments with slit-scan photography. The presentation slides (in swedish) are available (8 Mb PDF) here. For more pictures see the set Slit-scan I over at flickr. The processing code for time lapse captures through the iSight camera with a static centered slit looks like this:...
