Photography and image-making technology is reaching out in many new directions at once and at speed. Digital cameras no longer just provide easier ways to make traditional photos. Chris and Ade investigate emerging and future tech that will help us all make new and exciting photographs and images. Cameras, devices, software, hardware - we aim to cover all angles in the pursuit of The Future of Photography.

Chris presents three new devleopments from computational photography and videography. Relighting (portraits) will keep the light, shadows, color and even specular highlights realistic when swapping out a background. Good old StyleGAN2, the neural net that, among other things, creates artificial humans has received an upgrade with several improvements. If you're a film maker, how about making your virtual car chases much more realistic by transferring the style of lush green German mountains to the dry hills of California.

Picks of the week: Chris brought a home-made pinhole camera, Jeremiah takes us right through the uncanny valley and out the other side with Unreal's digital humans and Eimear is one of the organizers of the Junction Festival which is a wonderful arts festival in Ireland. Make sure you check it out!

This is an episode of The Future of Photography podcast with Adrian Stock, Eimear King, Jeremiah Chechik, Chris Marquardt
