On Tuesday, July 3rd, I was a guest on TWiT Photo, the weekly photo show on the TWiT network hosted by Catherine Hall and Leo Laporte. In case you forgot to tune in live or if you live in an unfortunate time zone, here is the recording of the show for you. Jump right to the topic that you are interested in or scroll all the way down to watch it in full length.
We have had a lot of fun chatting about HDR Vertorama photography, online sharing, building a photography website and many other things. There should be lots of useful information in this video.
