Shooting tethered to a laptop is something I fought against for years. Last Fall all of that changed.

Your money also gets you additional tips on custom sizing, exporting, and archiving your finished diptychs.
This is the first tutorial shared on this blog, and it feels incredibly geeky of me to post a software demo. Maybe I am paying back the world for all the free demos I have viewed online. Whatever the truth is behind this demo, PLEASE set me straight. If you dig it, share the link. If it is wack, let me know so I can put effort towards building log cabins other things.
