We live in a time of incredible abundance.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
The curse of imagery knowledge runs deep in my mind. I often look at a scene and consider the capture possibilities. 2019 dwellers are blessed with endless options, from all powerful iPhones, capable of remarkable low light captures:
to traditional digital cameras, some of which feature impressive stabilization and image processing/compositing capabilities:
I was able to capture these images because a few camera manufacturers have invested in smaller, lighter, silent and capable equipment.
I am thankful for that.
The iPhone has not yet eaten telephoto lens applications. That said, I suspect that computational photography will change the market again, in the not too distant future.
