My latest post on the HP professional photography blog is the start of a series of articles on photography basics. This one is on exposure approach and image sharpness.
When I was out trying infrared photography with my iPhone 3Gs I really lusted after a tripod. And now it is here. The people at Joby who make the bendy GorillaPod have made one for the iPhone called the Joby Gorillamobile for 3Gs.

onOne Software have made a new release of their iPhone software that allows you to control your Canon or Nikon camera so long as it is connected to a WiFi enabled computer.

The GigaPan Epic automates the shooting of panoramas and photo mosaics. In this review we cover the unit itself and the free stitching and uploading software that is provided. A panorama allows you to capture a much wider field of view than your camera and lens can do in one image. A photo mosaic uses [...]
