Annie Leibovitz unveils photo series with Google PixelAnnie Leibovitz unveils photo series with Google Pixel

GoogleBlog - 0 sec ago

Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz is unveiling a series of portraits of individuals who are changing the landscape of their time. Using her Google Pixel exclusively, Annie encountered her subjects in the places they live and work and are inspired into action. 

Annie photographed equal justice lawyer Bryan Stevenson in Alabama.

The pictures portray extraordinary people who are defined by their fierce desire to make the world a better place, no matter how daunting the obstacles. The individuals photographed include soccer player Megan Rapinoe, equal justice lawyer Bryan Stevenson, artist James Turrell, journalist Noor Tagouri, hip-hop activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, Army Officer Sarah Zorn, global-health scientist Jack Andraka and more.

Everyone can check out the full collection of these stunning portraits online, along with a behind-the-scenes glimpse of Annie’s work. The Face Forward series will expand with new images as Annie continues to tell the story of today’s changemakers.

This project pushed Annie, who rarely has shot professional portraits on a camera phone. “I wanted to challenge myself to shoot with the camera that’s always in your pocket,” she says. “I’d heard so much about the Pixel and was intrigued.”

Working closely with Pixel’s camera team, Annie tested new tools on the Pixel 4 including astrophotography. “I’ve been really impressed with the camera. It took me a beat, but it really started clicking when I relaxed and let the camera do the work.”

Finally—for those who are hoping to channel your own inner photographer, we’ll leave you with a piece of advice from Annie: “It’s all inside you. You just go do it. It’s all there.”

Brexit Deal Leaves Companies in Limbo Over Data Flows

Slashdot.org - 1 hour 28 min ago
The U.K.'s new deal for leaving the European Union hasn't given companies any certainty about how they should handle the movement of personal data out of the bloc and into Britain. From a report: The country has until at least the end of next year to clinch an agreement with Europe that will allow organizations to freely move data about customers to and from the EU without breaching data protection rules, according to the agreement released on Thursday. Violating the EU's General Data Protection Regulation policy can lead to fines of as much as 4% of annual sales. A so-called adequacy decision would add the U.K. to a list of countries whose data laws are accepted as in harmony with Europe's. But while the U.K. currently adheres to the bloc's laws, it isn't a shoe-in. Its data-collection practices for national security purposes are likely to come under heavy scrutiny during a review process that may take years, lawyers have said.
