  1. I’ve been wanting to do a panoramic timelapse with multiple camera bodies, and then merge them and create a timelapse from the merged panoramas, but I can’t figure out how to do it in Photoshop.I’m open to using After Effects also, but it seems to me that the action that I need to do(merging timelapses) would be best be done in PS. Thanks!

  2. Have you guys used LRTimelapse from ? Thats what I’m trying to learn right now. Its brilliant. Do you guys know of easier/better way to do fancy stuff like ken burnsy type stuff or deflickering?

  3. Kelby always has great tips so grab him for a quick chat if possible.

    In regards to time-lapse I’m always interested in exposure tips particularly shutter speeds and the different effects that can create.

    Of course avoiding flicker would be nice and knowing how to expose for not only natural looking movement but for the best overall exposure over long periods of time and shifts in lighting (outdoors).

    Looking forward to the new content. Have a great conference!

  4. I have heard a few podcasters casually mention creating HDR’s from a single RAW exposure rather than bracketing multiple exposures, but I have never heard them discuss how they post process such an image (I’m assuming they’re talking about “tone mapping” when they say HDR).

  5. Guidance on composition?
    HDR is exciting, I am drawn to it for what is does to images with texture (brick, stone, etc…). Seems to really make it POP, but the image in my mind doesn’t always show after the post-processing…
    Panoramas are great, I have a great sunrise shot on a large canvas (printing big is awesome), but my pano attempts sine them haven’t quite turned out. Any thoughts or tips to improve my success ratio?
    Time lapse REALLY intrigues me, but I can’t leave my camera still long enough… Thinking a Nikon P7100 will give me a budget 2nd camera with some power enough to try a time-lapse. But this is a bigger investment into the composition.
    Thanks, greatly appreciate the site, sharing and time you give us.

  6. Best practice methods for HDR panos
    Best practice methods to market and sell panos, HDR, and HDR panos.
    Selling high end prints e.g. Prints on canvas, metal, and other unique but beautiful print media.

    Interview folks from some of the labs. E.g. Bay photo, whcc, artistic photo canvas, etc.

    Ps great show !

  7. I want to know about Panoramas and the kit and software associated with Panos. I know you are not fond of special equipment but is a nodal slide necessary if the subject is more than 50m away (I read this somewhere but don’t know if it is true)
    I am also interested in HDR (especially in Panos)
    Also, can you occasionally talk about software other than Adobe?

  8. I would be interested in your views on how to shoot and edit an HDR panorama.

  9. HDR – Pano’s
    What is the best practice method for obtaining outstanding pano HDR’s

    Best practice method for printing and which output is best for display? e.g. Canvas, Metal, Metallic, etc.

    Conversations with some of the labs. eg. Bay Photo, WHCC, Artistic Photo Canvas

    What is the best method for marking this type of work?

  10. I would like to know more about the “vibration reduction” feature that most lenses have. I know why they have them, but what are some disadvantages to using it? What are some advantages to not using?

  11. I’d like to see more on timelapses, and alternative software to make them. I just created my first, and it took a while to find decent free options to put it together. Maybe some ‘behind the scenes’ to see rather than just read as well. I read Rich’s commandment of dragging the shutter, but it didn’t click with me until I made my timelapse and had lots of bugs appearing and disappearing from frame to frame.
