computational photography — June 2022

sky using Bomber Baba insaturator / creative filter

All about the development of two new insaturators / creative filters for iOS photo apps.

This month’s video presentation about digital matter and computational photography will be more about the process of development of two new computational modules: Bomber Baba (already released on my iOS compatible photo apps) and Komop (not yet finalized).

I will try to illustrate how I slowly develop new software based filtering techniques. This trial-and-error process is quite a sensual experiment, where I start with a concept and slowly adapt it to real-world results.

The first module is developed to modulate the picture taken according to the information complexity of the different parts of the picture while the second one will try to exacerbate the digital artefacts when compressing information.

Photos have been taken on my everyday routines, between Marseille in France, Geneva in Switzerland, and Wetzlar in Germany (home of Leica — Leitz Park) where I was for diverse reasons.

Hope you enjoy, and don’t hesitate to post your comments or questions. :)

Or for those of you who speak French, the French version will surely be interesting:




A raw review of diverse techniques, cameras and lenses. More on how things might be done, or on how the equipment feels than sole objective technical data. Hopefully useful and enjoyable.
