Seating reservations are required. For reservations and information, please call (310) 440-7300 or see information on planning a visit.

From its beginnings in experimentation by mid-19th century scientists and gentlemen of leisure, photography has been shaped by the desire to understand and explore the medium’s essential materials. Taking that spirit of invention and discovery as its point of departure, this exhibition features the work of seven artists—Matthew Brandt, Marco Breuer, John Chiara, Chris McCaw, Lisa Oppenheim, Alison Rossiter, and James Welling—who focus their investigations on the light sensitivity and chemical processing of photographic papers, challenging us to see the medium anew.

The exhibition also includes an overview of experimental practices during the twentieth century, drawn from the Getty Museum’s collection. The works on view in Light, Paper, Process provide a glimpse into the continued interrogation and reinvention of the medium of photography by artists working today.

All events are FREE, unless otherwise noted. Seating reservations are required. For reservations and information, please call (310) 440-7300 or see information on planning a visit.

PROVIA. Fujifilm has published Episode 6 – “PROVIA” in their series of “episodes” on their unique Film Simulation modes. PROVIA is Fujifilm’s standard on all their digital cameras, so when you are shooting in JPEG, by default you are shooting PROVIA.

If you are new to Fujifilm’s Film Simulation mode, then just set your Fujifilm camera to Film Simulation Bracketing and select PROVIA, Velvia and ASTIA. Then, go out and shoot street, nature and people. Compare.

To recap, PROVIA is the default standard JPEG mode offering a natural all-rounder, Velvia gives vivid colors and ASTIA shows faithful smooth tone reproduction. The softer Pro Neg.Std (ideal studio lighting) and sharper Pro Neg.Hi (simple lighting) are perfect for portraiture. Classic Chrome aim to to reproduce the ambience found in documentary-style photographs and magazines.

And, as Fujifilm makes clear in this episode, you will always have the option of RAW, giving you the option to adjust tone, colors, white balance, dynamic range, etc. to your liking and for each specific image.

Here’s episode 6 (“PROVIA”) of the “The World of Film Simulation”:

Panasonic is Developing “Light ID solution”: The High-speed Visible Light Communication Technology Via App-Installed Smartphone’s Image Sensor (Camera)

Wed April 29, 2015

Panasonic is developing the new light ID (identifier) technology which is demonstrated in the following video titled Panasonic TVCF “Light ID solution”:

Panasonic’s “Light ID solution” makes various information able to transmit over ID signals from LED light sources such as illuminated signboards, show windows and displays. Wherever there’s light, a new door to information will open for you.

“Museum signage” via Panasonic’s light ID solution using a smartphone: Image extracted from video below

“Museum signage” also uses Panasonic’s light ID solution*, a high-speed visible light communication technology that enables easy reception of information from LED lighting and signage panels, using a smartphone.

This video presents Light ID Technology Using Smartphone Camera.

  • Technology showcased at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (Las Vegas, NV, January 6, 2015)

*Under Development

Information is received by reading visible light ID from digital signage or LED illumination (Light IDs are like barcodes or QR codes written in light). This technology is useful in crowded area where it can be difficult to access IDs.

Panasonic High-speed Visible Light Communication Technology

Light ID using conventional visible light communication technology had a dilemma.

  • Transmission rate was very low (approx. 10+bps) using a camera installed in a smartphone as a receiver, on the other hand, a special light receiving device is required for high-speed communication.
  • It hampers the spread of visible light communication.

However, the newly developed technology only requires users to download an app onto their smartphones, and also realizes transmission rates that are couple hundred times higher (several kbps).

  • The signal source is a flashing white LED of several thousand hertz and it can be installed in digital signage as a backlight as well as spotlights for works of art in museums and products in stores.
