In this episode Chris talks about the difference between the Arctic and the Antarctic. Jon Miller comes on the show to tell you about the new Kodak Super 8 film camera that he saw at CES. Chris will also discuss the why and how of manual focusing. Conclusion: a) it is okay to manual focus, b) it can be really beneficial to focus manually (depending on situation or depending how much control you want or how precise you will be), c) different lenses are better at manual focussing and last but not least d) practice makes perfect.

tfttf712 – Going All The Way In

712

Receive free updates

During his Ethiopia tour Chris learned that revisiting a place can make your photography so much better. If you know what to expect, you can concentrate so much more on your photography. Also the interaction with the people of Ethiopia was even better than in November 2014. The Timkat festival in Lalibela was amazing and very energetic. Going closer (or better: going right into the middle of it) helped achieve some very powerful photos.

Ethiopia Blew My Mind – Again

Ethiopia was an absolute thrill to photograph this year. It’s a poor country and yet everyone there seems so full of joy, the smiles are contagious. The annual Timkat festival in Lalibela turned out to be one of the most energetic events I’ve ever attended. And I managed to get right into the middle.
