Re: March 20 - Day THREE: Improving Image Understanding by Improving Image Quality

NO RATINGS
I'm going to open a can o worms here.  As one interested in the problem of capturing images of elusive creatures -- that's right - sasquatches -- my mind goes to the problem of focussing on a furry and thus already somewhat fuzzy body behind branches which may fool the auto-focus of a camera to lose focus on the object of interest in the background.  I suppose avoiding the use of auto-focus in this context is the lesson here, but is there any other kind of special processing that might be useful in this context, say to avoid losing detail on the fur in the noise reduction processing.  I played with the idea of stitching images across time or space to somehow remove the foreground branches and leaves.  This would require a special multi-camera setup, I suppose.  Not likely in this context.

Provided for your serious thinking of a potentially silly topic.
