While I can tell you this was shot on my commute to work here in Central Florida, I'm not allowed to tell you what camera I used to shoot it. But I'm pretty sure it will be revealed in the future on the B&H YouTube channel where my camera reviews are posted.

It's probably a Nokia 1020 and he's ditched his iPhone :)

New gear. Well below wholesale prices. Larry shares an AWESOME #LarrysCheapShots technique for saving on photography gear. And it's totally legal and ethical! http://bit.ly/ZKPPQe #Photography #Savings

Great Tip Larry. I never thought of doing that and just might in the future.

I experimented with the GiigaPan again yesterday. This is a snapshot of a pano containing 218 18Mp images. To see and zoom in on the actual pano, go here: http://gigapan.com/gigapans/124464

Thought for the day... Never Compete on Price!

Set your prices based on your costs and how much profit you need. Competing on price will sink you every time. And if your bid is too high for your customers, reduce the price but ONLY if you also REMOVE SOMETHING FROM THE WORK DESCRIPTION. If you just reduce price and don't reduce the scope of the project, you're telling your client you lied to them about the first price you quoted. That's always a bad plan.

I have recently opened my own photography studio in Nepal and I don't have so much idea to make the price list but I want to know how can I make price list for different photography price.

Saw a couple red-shouldered hawks that same day but they never got closer than the top of some TALL pine trees.

Nice, We've got some hawks in our neighborhood, but never seem to have my camera handy when they fly into a tree near me.

Adobe Ideas app for iPad and iPhone dropped from $10 to FREE. Wonder how long it'll be free. http://bit.ly/15pCYYZ

It's a vector based drawing app. Swing by the app store for a good description and some sample screenshots.

After reviewing the Nikon D4 and the Canon 1DX I added one of the high-end features they have in common, to my mid-level DSLR and you can too. I also just bought a GREAT point & shoot camera even though I have an iPhone camera and a DSLR. I'll tell you why and which one you should buy. http://bit.ly/VF3zvu

Great advice on audio notes. I have thought that would be a cool feature for ages.

There's an invention called a GigaPan Epic Pro. I'm just getting started with it and I have a bit to learn, but the first set of results are pretty cool. It's a mechanical "sling" that holds your camera and pans horizontally and vertically, and fires the shutter each time it stops. I just took 168 shots with my D7000 and stitched them together with the provided software. Then I uploaded it to their web site. You can look at it or zoom in anywhere.

This is just a snapshot of a partial zoom, but the full size panorama is here:

http://gigapan.com/gigapans/123534

The focus is a little soft because of the setup I used and the fact that the focus was locked. There's a way to make it refocus with each shot, but I'm still learning. Also, the stitching was really good, but when I re-opened the file, there was a bad band where everything's misaligned. It's probably a mistake I made.

So... don't judge the quality from my one first effort. Just realize that there's a SUPER cool device that helps you shoot and stitch panoramas that are HUGE. This one is 1068 Megapixels!!! Wow!

David Bergman is the photographer that did the inauguration gigapan in 2008.

Among others, he also did a gigapan of the 2012 London Olympic Opening Ceremony - http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/olympics/2012/gigapan/opening-ceremonies/

Got to check out the Nikon D4 for a B&H camera review. Luckily the 200mm let me snap this guy before he could snap me.
