The Camera Vs. The Eye
on 4th November 2013
 The Eye and the Camera do not see exactly the same way. When an individual looks at his or her surroundings, their eyes roam and scan the surroundings, focusing on objects close by or in the distant.  Even though the camera and the eye both have a lens, the eye is more complex and able to focus on an object while still incorporating the...

on 13th June 2012
