Know The Glow: 4 Tips To Spot The Golden Reflective Glow In A Child’s Photo And Save His or Her Eyes

Sat July 18, 2015

In flash photography, we are all very familiar with the dreaded “red-eye effect” when we take a photo of a subject looking directly at the camera: the camera catches and records the reflections of the flash from the blood-rich retina at the back of the eyes. These red eye reflections are in fact a good sign, indicating that the retinas of both eyes are unobstructed and healthy.

But what if you notice a golden glow, or what a pediatric ophthalmologist calls, an “abnormal red reflex?” A white, yellow (gold) or black reflection in one or both eyes can be a warning sign for the presence of a childhood eye disease that can lead to blindness.

Do note that, if you notice a white reflection in your child’s eye, very often, a white reflex may not actually signal anything abnormal, especially if the child is not looking directly at the camera or may have shifted his or her eyes.

However, to be sure, a prompt visit to your child’s pediatrician or a pediatric ophthalmologist is in order. Do not forget to bring the photo with you, even though they will perform their own tests using an ophthalmoscope to make the right diagnosis.

To learn more about this condition and how you can potentially save a child’s eyes, read the story of the mom who founded Knowtheglow.org:

The Photographers’ Gallery Invites You: “Shirley Baker: Women, Children and Loitering Men” Exhibition at No Cost before 12:00 Daily, 17 Jul – 20 Sep 2015: Rare Colour Photos of the Working Class in Manchester & Salford of Late Twentieth Century Britain

Thu July 16, 2015

The following video presents Rare colour photos of slum life in 1960s Manchester – BBC World Service:

  • Here’s Curator Anna Douglas, from her interview with the BBC World Service, discussing Shirley Baker and the “ways she celebrated life with her lens.” The exhibition opens tomorrow.

The late Manchester street photographer Shirley Baker captured scenes of family life in some of the poorest neighbourhoods during the 1960s. Rather than depicting sadness and deprivation, however, the images show a certain “joie de vivre.” Anna Douglas, curator of a forthcoming exhibition at The Photographers’ Gallery in London, explains how Shirley Baker celebrated life with her lens.

How To Photograph The Black Spots On A Black Leopard

Wed July 15, 2015

The leopards roaming the jungles of Malaysia are mostly jet black, and researchers for a long time did not know that they actually had spots. And, without a clear view of these complex whirls of spots that are unique for each leopard, scientists studying them could not easily tell the black leopards apart.

Apparently, it was by accident that, by reviewing infrared images taken during the night, researchers discovered that black leopards indeed had spots. The near infrared flash that was activated in the night revealed a hidden spotting pattern underlying their coat.

The infrared flash on the camera is automatically activated at night, but the team got the camera to fire the infrared flash during the day. They did that by blocking the camera’s light metering sensor, tricking the camera into thinking it was night and therefore triggering the infrared flash. In this way, they were able to clearly photograph the spots.

Now, I wonder if they could maybe have the same results by using an infrared filter on their cameras — or, simply force firing the infrared flash during the day as fill-in flash?

When you think “throwable camera,” do you think: Just a gimmick, a toy, a fad?

It could be all those, but an MIT alumnus has actually made something incredibly useful out of it. Turns out, his throwable tactical camera, called the Explorer, is a life-and-death tool for police and first responders who need to know what’s hiding in collapsed buildings and other potentially hazardous areas.
