I'm a student at Brigham Young University studying Computer Science and Spanish. I'm also interested in animation and photography. I work as a web developer in BYU's Center for Teaching and Learning. At work I use mainly PHP and Javascript.

comment Cannot light a fire using a lens?
Doesn't it also have to do with the size of the front element? If you have two lenses with the same focal length but one has a larger front element, that one collects more energy from the sun than the smaller one and has more paper-burning potential.

comment How do I stitch two star trails photos taken by different cameras?
Sorry, I guess I wasn't very clear in my original question. I already used a stacking program (startrails.de/html/software.html) to stack all of the exposures from each camera. Then I took the two stacked images (one from the 7D and one from the XTi) and tried to use Photomerge to merge them, but it couldn't find a match (even though there's a substantial amount of overlap). Is there a more hands-on way to create a panorama?

comment What are the laws in the United States concerning photo printing copyrights?
@ClaraOnager: I think they have probably been sued before. They're taking as many precautions as possible so that it doesn't happen again. Thinking back on it, it would have been much easier to say that I took them using a tripod and a timer, but when I talk to people, my first instinct is to be painfully honest when answering their questions. I'm not that quick a thinker.
