Wednesday, May 5. The Physics Colloquium Series presents Dr. Jim Kelly: Light Field Photography. “A group of researchers at Stanford has developed a handheld camera that allows digital images to be altered in several novel ways after the image is captured and stored. In a previously captured photo, one can later change the plane of focus of the image, bring the entire image into (or out of) focus, and, in some cases, even change the apparent position of the camera relative to the subject. We will discuss how this camera works and show examples of the reprocessed images." Everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served at 4 p.m., and the talk will begin at about 4:10 p.m. in Olin 124.
