    At 3:05 was it taken in Buenos Aires?

    No, that's a gorgeous bridge right there in Dublin. I do want to visit Buenos Aires soon, though.

    Ahh look similar to one here in the Puerto Madero area. I'm an American that lives here. Lathough I'd be especially careful walking around with expensive equipment in Buenos Aires. The downtown (Microcentro) isn't bad, but even in certain areas there's a lot of mugging. Unless you're with a big group, wouldn't risk strolling alone all day with a camera out in the open to be honest.

    Hey Tony, I've read your book and it would be great if there was a time laps section.

    Funny you say that, I'm actually working with a time lapse expert now to create a section on that. You'll get it as a free update to the book–just be sure to follow my Facebook page (link in the description) to be notified when it's ready.

    Hey Tony, great video. Your mention of shooting in close-quarters reminded me of the photo excursion I just went on along the northern CA & southern OR coastlines. Although I could have opt'd to be farther way from my subject, I stayed close, shot between 20 to 40 images and then used Microsoft ICE to piece them all together. Unlike "normal" panoramics that take a linear pan, ICE permits two-dimensional pans (up/down & side to side). I tried both locking the exposure & not to see which worked.

    If I want to make and HDR do I have to shoot in RAW or it can be JPEG?

  13. Tony & Chelsea Northrup
    December 6, 2012

    Either, but I always recommend shooting raw. Check out the RAW vs JPEG video on my channel for more info.

    Thanks, I have seen it already, it had really good and usefull information. I ask because I am thinking in purchasing the Sony Hx200v, and even though it dosn't have raw, I find it to be a really nice camera. Also I have seen the SuperZoom from Panasonic, but I don't need those other features well not right know maybe in two or three years.

    Hi, Quick question.. I have a Canon t3i and I would like to set up the HDR to get those amazing pictures. How do i enable it ?

    How can a 17-35 lens equate to a 10mm lens in a crop sensor camera?

    Video is a little confusing, quoting the equivalent focal length then the actual lens used. So the lens you used is 10-22, equivalent to 16-35 on a crop sensor.

    Turn on bracketing (AEB) and then process the multiple pictures on your computer. There's detailed information in Chapter 11 of Stunning Digital Photography (links in the description).

    Hello Tony – many thanks for the video – I'm just starting out in photography and have recently purchased a Panasonic G80/85 and was hoping you might be able to point me in the right direction as to a suitable lens for architectural photography (external building shots mostly). Looking for a lens that negates the need for me to step back so much – I currently have the 12-60 kits lens that came with the camera – any advice would be very much appreciated.
