We developed context photography to provide an alternative photographic experience. Sensors gather real-time context information which visually affects a photograph as it is taken. In an exploratory study, we investigated how people would experience, use and understand a context camera and how it differs from regular digital photography. We here present an extract of the study, where one participant experienced context photography as being "more real" than post-hoc image manipulation and that it added a new dimension to picture taking.
