Microsoft Live Labs Introduces Photosynth

No Comments »

Microsoft Live Labs introduced today Photosynth, new approach to photo sharing, to share or relive a vacation destination or explore a distant museum or landmark with your digital camera. You can use Photosynth to transform regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience. You just take a few dozen of digital photos – the number depends on the size of the place or object – with overlap between each shot, from various locations and angles. Then goto Microsoft’s Photosynth Web and generate your own synth creations…

No Comments »

May be you have already heard it, but I just want to repeat it once again.

Scott Kelby has come up with a really fun idea to push the release of his new book, Lightroom 2 for Digital Photographers. On Saturday, August 23rd, there will be PhotoWalks around the world. These are absolutely free events hosted by volunteer leaders in cities around the world.

Each PhotoWalk will last about 2 hours and end up somewhere to eat (or drink). This is a great opportunity to meet other photographers of all levels in your area. You do have to sign up in advance as participation is limited to 50 people at each location.
