Let us try to guess who that photographer is! Again in an attempt to understand AI’s capacity for photography, we will focus on history via the profiles of famous photographers of the past and present.
As last week we will attempt to discover or rediscover a photographer that has marked his time, and thus will ask AI to explain, for better or for worse, just feel free to check better sources and compare to see if all of this is true or makes sense.
I will rely on Open AI, Dall-E, (for illustrations) and Open GPT (for the historical data).
The KMZ (Krasnogorski Mekhanicheskii Zavod) Tair 11 has been built in various variations. This is the original 133mm with an M39 mount for reflex cameras. It has further iterations made for the M42 mount. As such it doesn’t have rangerfinder coupling and will need intermediary extensions to adapt to a modern camera flange distance.
It is however known for its strong character and has the reputation of a great portrait lens. It also has twenty aperture blades which makes for great round bokeh at any aperture.
It is rather massive and has its small quirks, but overall is a very interesting optical beast indeed.
And again the French speaking version of the video review:
This month I’ll be showing how the process of finding new ideas towards new development can be challenging.
How do you approach computational photography as an artistic mean and not solely a technical thing? An inner view on how these computational methods of image alteration can be more than simply trying to imitate or simulate but per se unique processes as would physico-chemical reactions.
