Lytro – Crown of thorns

These tiny flowers were one of my favorite first subjects when I got my Tamron macro lens over nine years ago.

Unlike conventional film and digital cameras, the Lytro does not require the photographer to decide on precise focus and aperture (actually the camera is fixed aperture of f2) at the time of imasge capture; rather, the viewer of the image can choose a focus point by clicking anywhere on the image with a mouse. The photos are dynamic and Lytro calls them “living pictures’.

These photos are actually stored on the Lytro servers and I am linking to them.

Mouse click on the portion of the image you’d like to see in sharp focus; notice what happens in the rest of the image.
