When I got approached by a client to deliver GPS tracking solution for an upcoming "Cloudy 2 With A Chance of Meatballs" foodimobile tour, I must admit I wasn't sure where to begin. Building a website with map showing current location of the tour truck was something I haven't done before and with due date looming I had to carefully think before making any decisions.
One of the first things I've thought of was a GPS device itself. What should it be, and how will I communicate with it?
Not so long time ago I decided to come back to digital photography making Nikon D3200 my new choice for DSLR. Together with it I purchased Nikon 50mm f/1.8 D AF lens and here are photos from the session with young aspiring actor Vitaly Benko.

It is indeed true, that many of the software developers come from the crowd of complete nerds who are deeply submerged into their own culture. While hiring process involves measuring their qualifications, it does not account for anything beyond that. And by beyond, I mean creativity and ability "to look outside of the box".
