From reportage to wedding photography, still and moving images command equal power in our lives. As the way we consume information changes, our methods of collecting and creating content must evolve as well.

I started riding motorcycles before I even took up photography, way back in 1972. Both riding and photographing require a lot of practice to achieve mastery. Both pursuits can be rewarding (or frustrating) as that expertise develops (or fails to.) Both involve complex technology with numerous opportunities to spend more and more money.
Sony's point-and-shoot cameras are being marshaled to rally 'round the company-wide push for 3D TV with the announcement that two of three new Cyber-shot models will contain 3D Sweep Panorama capability. By shooting a burst of still images while panning the camera horizontally or vertically, the resulting panorama will appear in 3D when viewed through 3D glasses on a Sony or other brand of 3D TV.
With temperatures pushing into triple digits, the Northeast has become a sweltering steam bath, and no place for photographers or A/V pros to be working outside. But if you must, plan to dress for the heat. You want a lightly colored, brimmed hat like the Soundman Sun Hat from Koala (left), not a baseball cap. No matter the logo, a cap leaves your ears and the back of your neck exposed, a recipe for disaster under an unforgiving sun.

Taking 360° panoramic pictures used to be the domain of those wealthy enough to afford the exotic cameras that took these dramatic images. Not anymore. What was once the domain of the well heeled is now the domain of the high heeled and flip-flop crowd. Now anybody with $134.95 and a few rolls of film in the fridge can be counted among the hoitiest and toitiest landscape shooters.

The Iceland volcano trip that we made last month rocked. I was supposed to teach a creative workshop in August, in Iceland, with Focus on Nature.

There are some really cool-looking, rugged digicams out there these days. But regardless of how much attitude your camera exudes while in your hand, the moment you tuck it away, it becomes just another vanilla-flavored weenie cam in a nebbish belt pouch. Not so with the new line of Harley Davidson digicam pouches from Olympus.
