Abstract

In context photography, sensors gather real-time context information, which visually affects a photograph as it is taken. We have implemented a prototype running on standard camera phones. It uses sound and movement as context information and a set of custom-made computer graphics effects which affect images in real time. To investigate how people would receive the concept, we conducted an exploratory user study with seven participants using context cameras for a six-week period. The study provided insights into how such a camera is perceived and used, revealing the emergence of new goals, expectations, aesthetics and practice in taking pictures.
