Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:
What is a panoramic HDR image?

A panoramic HDR is quite simply a series of HDR images that have been stitched together using photo stitching software.

If you follow a simple plan, it’s actually pretty easy. It is all in having the correct workflow, so here it is.

wonderful input

Mark Weil's curator insight, October 15, 2015 4:09 AM

I like that the speaker Will was straightforward and thorough with explaining different mic options and how to apply different techniques  to help the recording process. It interested me that Will demonstrated the muff or "dead cat" showing that the usual use is for wind noise reduction but it may be used for reducing noise in certain vocal overtones.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

It’s easy to walk away from a photo opportunity because you don’t feel your lens is long enough or wide enough, or you believe your camera’s continuous shooting speed is slow or its autofocus sluggish.

But learning to think around any potential barriers is how original photos are made.

5 Twitter Changes and How to Make the Most of Them | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Are you wondering how Twitter’s changes will impact your use of its network?

 

Recently, Twitter got a complete revamp that changed things drastically. Interestingly, it didn’t pump the social network with more and more features.

 

Ryan Sarver, Twitter’s head of API, explained it crisply: “In a world where Facebook and Google are competing on features, Twitter wants to focus on being simple.”

 

This article will review all the changes, from user interface changes to Twitter brand pages, what the new changes mean and how you can best use them.

7 Tips To Maximize Shares of Your Facebook Posts

7 Tips To Maximize Shares of Your Facebook Posts | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Facebook recently changed the way users interact with content on fan pages: any user, including non-fans, can now post on fan page walls and like/comment/share fan page content. In other words, a Facebook user does not have to first like your fan page before they can interact with your content. This is a good thing!

 

Since this change, the emphasis has shifted slightly from gaining more likes (fans) to increasing the number of shares on each piece of content. When you craft your fan page updates in a manner that naturally inspires fans and their friends and visitors to your page to share with their networks, you set in motion ripples of viral visibility. Basically, free additional exposure...
