Photography is an art and Google has taken it to its maximum exponent. Using 64 Pixel mobiles and 331 LEDs, he manages to create the perfect portrait.
When it comes to mobile photography, the Google Pixels are in the lead, especially in the selfie camera. These results are due to hard work behind the scenes and the creation of many machine learning models.
Google has created a platform that is truly insane and consists of 64 Pixel phones and up to 331 dome-shaped LEDs leaving the center free . Right in that free space they put a chair and there have been up to 70 who have posed under that structure.
The goal of the experiment is simple: to demonstrate how a face changes with respect to lighting. Thanks to these “trainings”, Google algorithms are able to automatically correct the lighting in photos with respect to the position of the subject’s face in the snapshot and facial features.
Pixel 4 and Pixel 5 mobile users are not aware that this exercise is performed automatically every time they shoot a photo in portrait mode . However, for owners of a Pixel prior to 4, to achieve this improvement effect, they have to do it in Google Photos , for example.
That structure of 64 mobiles and more than 330 flash lights that can be individually programmed, gave very illuminating results that were later translated into data and added to Google’s artificial intelligence.
As we can see, using different light sources on a stationary subject makes the shadows tell us a lot about their volumetric shapes and thanks to this it is possible to better isolate each area of the face in which to do a more individualized treatment, in addition to a cutout. more precise.
Getting the perfect photograph is a matter of ingenuity, and Google has proven it. For something, its camera is one of the most desired on the market and now we can have it on any Android mobile .
