Photo Day Panorama

Remember the Photo Day with all the photographer interviews last summer? I’m still releasing the Photo Day videos every other week on Fridays (taking turns with the Everest Trek videos). The latest videos were the interview I shot with Ron Pepper on panorama photography.

During that interview Ron shot a panorama of the inside of the TWiT Cottage which is now online.

If you want to come along and have a look inside the TWiT Cottage, you can check it out here!
