  • Publication number: 20140354768
    Abstract: A system, method or computer readable storage device to enable mobile devices in capturing high quality photos by using both the rich context available from mobile devices and crowd-sourced social media on the Web. Considering the flexible and adaptive adoption of photography principles with different content and context composition rules and exposure principles are learned from the community-contributed images. Leveraging a mobile device user's scene context and social context, the proposed socialized mobile photography system is able to suggest optimal view enclosure to achieve appealing composition. Due to the complex scene content and a number of shooting-related contexts to exposure parameters, exposure learning is applied to suggest appropriate camera parameters.
