Red lights help your phone camera focus in the dark

Why is there a red light on my phone near the camera?

Understanding Spherical Aberration

In pho­tog­ra­phy, Spher­i­cal Aber­ra­tion is a defect in cam­era lens­es that caus­es light from dif­fer­ent points on the object being pho­tographed to come to a focus at dif­fer­ent points. Spher­i­cal Aber­ra­tion caus­es soft­ness of the image and some F‑stop num­bers to be incor­rect. Spher­i­cal Aber­ra­tion can be cor­rect­ed with lens ele­ments made of high­er qual­i­ty glass.

Top 14 Neutral Background Images of 2021

The say­ing “less is more” applies to pho­tog­ra­phy just as much as every­thing else in life. Neu­tral back­ground images can be great for sit­u­a­tions where you want to cre­ate visu­al inter­est, but don’t want the pho­to in ques­tion to steal the par­ty. This is why ocean images are so pop­u­lar in busi­ness com­mu­ni­ca­tion. But look close­ly and you will see that neu­tral images are far from bland. In fact, they are often inter­est­ing enough to stand as works of art on their own. Browse any art muse­um and you will see neu­tral-look­ing works every­where. With that in mind we encour­age you to revis­it any pre­con­cep­tions about the mean­ing of “neu­tral” and browse our com­pi­la­tion below with an open mind.

Top 13 Geometric Pattern Images of 2021

Geo­met­ric pat­terns have long been favored in archi­tec­ture not just for their innate attrac­tive­ness, but also their struc­tur­al prop­er­ties. Most geo­met­ric pat­terns are made up of repeat­ed tri­an­gles or rhom­bus­es. Occa­sion­al­ly you will see many-sided poly­gens or cir­cles. Orig­i­nal­ly cham­pi­oned in Islam­ic art, geo­met­ric pat­terns aren’t hard to find in mod­ern architc­ture. From vast steel struc­tures to end­less glass pat­terns, we hope you enjoy the fol­low­ing com­pli­a­tion of geo­met­ric pat­terns from the Wun­der­stock image library. Many are also suit­able for use as desk­top back­ground or smart­phone wallpaper.
