One of our first Lytro camera owners, Hanlin Goh, caught our attention last March when he started sharing a new picture every day on his blog, My Living Picture Year, and Twitter. Today, as he shares his 365th living picture, we celebrate Hanlin as a true light field pioneer.
On March 19th, just over a week into his year-long project, Hanlin shared the picture below, “Small in size, tall in ambition,” with us on Facebook. We shared the picture as part of a Lytro Blog post about some of our new light field photographers.
A year later, his picture has over 100,000 views and the count continues to grow. We liked the whimsy of his picture, and asked him if we could use it on the Lytro website to demonstrate the nine Living Filters that we launched in November.
When we updated the Lytro camera experience to include manual controls, Hanlin started sharing experiments, including this lightpainting self-portrait.
Thank you Hanlin, for sharing your creativity, curiosity and experimentation with us. Your photography inspires us. See all 365 of Hanlin’s pictures and click on the hearts below the pictures to let Hanlin know which are your favorites.
