TWiP 535 - A New iPhone! Xs or Excess?

In this episode I’ll be joined by iPhone photography pioneer Jack Hollingsworth, and photographer/educator PhotoJoseph to discuss the recent update to Apple’s most important product — the iPhone. Rest assured, in this show we won’t be obsessing over specs and features. Instead, we’ll be discussing the relentless maturation of mobile phone based photography and how advances in software, optics and hardware are changing our perception of the art of creating photographs. Is technology ruining the art form? Or evolving it into something unimaginably amazing!

Getting Started in Real Estate Photography

Have you ever considering entering the business of real estate photography? In this video I speak with Rich Baum, a veteran in the business. Rich gives some valuable tips on how you can get started in this lucrative business. Rich Baum is a Northern California-based professional photographer with experience shooting a broad range of subjects including real estate, sporting events, weddings and executive head shots. Whether producing images for Fortune 500 companies, small locally-owned businesses or a bride and groom on the day, Baum’s mission remains the same: to exquisitely capture the subject matter’s true essence and spirit, while also providing for outstanding service and a truly fun experience. Baum began his career as a prop master in Hollywood, working on television commercials and a number of well-known films including “Hoosiers,” “Gandhi,” “Beaches” and “The Naked Gun.” Over the course of twenty-five years working in the film business, Baum developed a keen eye for detail, framing and composition – skills that would serve him well when he transitioned to professional photography more than a decade ago. A resident of Fair Oaks, Baum also loves traveling, windsurfing, snowboarding and spending time with his wife Melissa and teenage children, Taylor and Sidney.

What is Google RAISR? Google RAISR Software | Smart Upsampling of Photos

Google's RAISR: "Rapid and Accurate Image Super-Resolution" is a prototype software that incorporates machine learning in order to produce high-quality versions of low-resolution images. The program uses artificial intelligence for smarter upsampling. RAISR system is capable of upscaling images without aliasing, achieving increased detail, all in real time on mobile devices. ► SUBSCRIBE to our Channel: https://goo.gl/94umrc LET'S CONNECT: ► FACEBOOK: http://fb.com/piximperfect ► INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/piximperfect ► TWITTER: https://twitter.com/piximperfect ► GOOGLE+: https://plus.google.com/+UnmeshDinda Back in the day when displays would max out at 800×600 resolutions, having images measure 640×480 wasn’t a big deal. In fact it was considered to be pretty big back then. Fast forward to today with monitors reaching up to 5K, clearly an image with a 640×480 would feel almost grainy. However upscaling images isn’t just about resizing it by hand since that means that it could end up looking very pixelated. But, it seems that Google Raise might have figured out a way to do so seamlessly through this technique. Standard upscaling methods create new pixels by applying simple combinations to the existent pixels in the low-resolution images. Such linear filters are fast but their results are not always satisfying. Instead of following the traditional route, Google's RAISR applies filters selectively to each pixel in the image. RAISR uses machine learning to find out which filter works best for each pixel. It does this by analyzing the differences between upscaled versions of low-resolution images and their direct high-resolution pairs. As the system goes through more image pairs, it is better able to predict which filter will work best on each pixel. Obviously, this is just a simplified explanation of how the system works. With RAISR, there are two methods that can be used to get high resolution image outputs. The fundamental process includes applying selective filters to the pixels of a low res and a high res copy of the image, to give rise to a super-resolution photograph with comparable level of details retained. The level of details are maintained by the machine learning algorithm, which comparatively analyses the low res and high res copies of the image, following which it detects the scenes and patterns in the frame and adds more details to the new pixels in the frame. The most effective output derived from RAISR initially uses a cheap upsampler to upscale a low resolution photograph, and then the machine learning algorithm compares the two image copies (the original low resolution and the derived high resolution) to identify the linear filters and new pixel areas. There’s no indication of how Google might use the technology commercially but it can be run on a typical mobile device in real-time. It seems possible that RAISR could be integrated into Google’s Camera app or an upcoming smartphone.

In this episode we discuss Google's recent upgrades to their popular Google Photos service. And the implications of what seems to be a constant progression of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational photography being applied to an art once ruled by humans and talent.
