Ask Our Photographer How He Got these Gorgeous Shots in Paris

You know how we used the Intel-Inspired Ultrabook™ Shooting Challenge as an excuse to send photographer Steven Taylor to Paris to shoot a bunch of black-and-white city portraits? Well the man with the cam is back, and he brought along some great photos of his pal Val in France.

Flip through the gallery (we recommend expanding all of the photos for maximum appreciation/enjoyment), and then head down to the comments, because Steven will be here at 2 PM ET today (UPDATE: Steven has left the building), ready to answer your questions about his trip, his gear, and, well...just about anything else that comes to mind. So toss him some Qs for him to A, why dontchya?

Here Be Free Stuff!

Looking to get your hands on an Ultrabook of your own? We're giving another one away (we've got a total of six of these bad boys)! Just like we did with Steven, we gave photographer Taylor Davidson an Ultrabook and a plane ticket to a mystery city to do his thing. Your clue to his location: The last photo in the gallery. To earn a shot at snagging the Ultrabook, 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 August 28. It could be anywhere in the world (except Paris — we're not trying to trick you here).
