TWiT Photo 42: Rockstars. Presidents. NFL. BIG event Photographer David Bergman

  The question on everyone’s mind must be: what hasn’t David Bergman done? With 11 covers for Sports Illustrated, including the coveted 2010 Super Bowl, and his distinction as official tour photographer for Bon Jovi, David gets a lot of game. He joins us live in the TWiT studio to discuss his now-famous GigaPan shot of Obama’s inauguration and shows viewers how he processes 600 frames of a GigaPan shot in a live software demo. Also, the music geek shares inside secrets on being a successful music tour photographer, and you won’t want to miss the moment he shocks Leo and me with his gigantic, $10G+ bazooka 600mm F4 Nikon lens. Here are Dave's top tips:

1. Visualize the photo you want to make.

2. Shoot details.

3. Learn how to light a portrait.
