Sometime before Christmas, Moshe Caine, college professor of Photography, wrote me to ask if I were interested to contribute to his new work, a free electronic ibook for iPad: “Interactive photo imaging”, an interactive textbook for students of photography and interactive media. Of course, I was more than pleased and I provided some material regarding multispectral imaging for art examination.
The iBook was published Jan 13th 2013 and you can freely download it on your iPad from here. I strongly encourage anybody to give it a glance. The section regarding multispectral imaging is just introductory. The stated focus of this work is to provide “a comprehensive overview of the transition of the digital photographic and imaging technologies from a passive medium to one where the creator and user alike may interact with the visual content and extract a richer comprehension of the content and context”.
Well, you already know my style, so this definition it’s a bit over my head, ahaha, but I assure you the iBook is rich with inspiring ideas to make creative and geeky photography with plenty of references and interactive links.
Particularly interesting chapter 3, “Interacting with Space”, with insights into Panoramic VR, Object VR, virtual tours, Photosynth, 3D photo modeling and light field photography.
Chapter 9, “Interacting with Time”, covers Time Lapse Photography and could be inspiring for applications in conservation…
Enjoy this FREE reading. Thanks, Moshe!
