Ask a Photographer How to Shoot a Band And Get Away With It

She's baaaaack: Seems like photographer Diana Levine survived her fast, loud, and mostly out-of-control hop to music Mecca Austin. Of course, she was there to participate in the latest installment of Gizmodo's Intel-Inspired Ultrabook™ Shooting Challenge, where she shot music-makers My Jersusalem as they did their thing.

So check out her cranked-up-to-11 shots in our gallery, and then head on down to the comments, where she's taking your questions right now. (Conversation starter: She shot a gnarly ghost-like photo effect where only part of a picture is blurry. Ask nicely and she may tell you how she does it.)

Give It Away Now!

Another day, another free Ultrabook™. In case you missed our previous guess-the-city-and-win-an-Ultrabook contests, we've got another. So take a look at our mystery shot (the last image in the gallery above), and see if you can guess where we sent photographer Douglas Sonders. To enter, just tweet your guess along with the hashtag #ultrabookspotted and a link to this post (here, we've made it easy for you: right click this link and select "Copy Link Address" to paste into your tweet) by 6 PM ET on September 25. It could be anywhere in the world (except Austin — we're not trying to trick you here).
