"Computational photography attempts to overcome the physical limitations of cameras and leads to pictures produced by smartphones that can match the image quality of professional cameras. In this lecture you will learn about the history and the basics of photography. How photography changed from film to sensor and finally how computational photography enabled light field photography which allows to reconstruct images in 2D and 3D with only one imaging sensor. Furthermore, we will explore why light field photography could be the future of photography and why it is still superior to AI based refocusing algorithms."

Committee: David Grellscheid, Susanna Röblitz, and Jan Byska.
