    You will need to change the application to wake up at some interval, use the camera and determine if you are present using face detection or something and if not, to not bothering saving any images until the next time. Repeat this each time and you'll have what you need..

    Are you using AV Foundation for the capture. Look to see if subjectAreaChangeMonitoringEnabled is available on the Mac. Also look at CIDetector and CIFaceFeature, and Core Image's CIFaceDetector which is featured in WWDC2012 session 520 starting at about 19:20.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
