I've worked as Lead Photographer for Netroots Nation (Formally YearklyKos Convention) since the beginning. I'm so happy to share mine and my staff's images in the newly designed website that my husband built! Check it out and if you are passionate about politics come to NN12 in Providence, RI this June!

My friend +Eric Cheng works for Lytro and is quoted on this article. New camera technology that allows refocusing after the fact.

"the camera takes what the company calls a “living picture,” meaning that it captures enough visual information in a single exposure so that the focus and zoom can be adjusted even after the picture is taken"
