Modern imaging optics are highly complex systems consisting of up to two dozen individual optical elements. This complexity is required in order to compensate for the geometric and chromatic aberrations of a single lens, including geometric distortion, field curvature, wavelength-dependent blur, and color fringing.
In this paper, we propose a set of computational photography techniques that remove these artifacts, and thus allow for post-capture correction of images captured through uncompensated, simple optics which are lighter and significantly less expensive. Specifically, we estimate per-channel, spatially-varying point spread functions, and perform non-blind deconvolution with a novel cross-channel term that is designed to specifically eliminate color fringing.
Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.
Experiment No.9 is a collaboration with Tell No One and SHOWstudio. TNO was asked to create a fashion film to counterpart Nick Knight's photography for AnOther magazine's Spring/Summer 2011 issue.

No Credentials is a film about the phenomenal intersection of photography and electronic music. We've spent the last few years documenting electronic dance culture and we felt it was time to pull the curtain back on the entire scene in an unprecedented way.
