Toronto was a productive time! (and yes, this is part six of the 2012 North American tour recap)
The 2012 North American tour recap continues, from one cost to the other, after San Francisco came Toronto, Canada.
Toronto fun fun fun this year – two weekends, two workshops. And the fact the Monika flew over from Germany and joined me for the next three weeks, made it even greater! <3
Let’s start with the first weekend: BIG cameras, large format 4×5.
Large format photography (and especially 4×5) really is an incredibly organic process and if you love film photography, you’ll love the video!
And if you don’t understand why some people fall in love with film photography, the video might help you understand.
And yet another one in the 2012 North American Tour recap marathon:
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to stuff like TWiT, I *love* finding out how things look and work behind the scenes. I love to get my hands deep down into the tech of things, following cables and ending up in the basement where the servers emit their soothing hum around the clock.
Or in short: I’m really really (really) curious and this is my equivalent of taking apart kitchen appliances to find out how they work!
So when I was at the TWiT Brickhouse studio, I couldn’t help but record a little behind-the-scenes video tour, asking John Slanina (jammerb) to show me around.
Also find out where my brick ended up.
When I introduced a way to do incident metering without an incident meter I received several questions with regards to how this was possible.
Let me try to explain a bit further.
An incident light meter uses a white (but translucent) dome to integrate light from several directions:
By taking two measurements with a grey card, you can approximate this quite well, actually to the point where the results are really really close.
The trick is in the measurements and in the math.

A quick detour in the 2012 North Amercian Tour recap.. You know I’m curious, so I’ve just put together some stats about the tour.
During the five weeks, I’ve been flying on 13 different airplanes (must have added at least another 100 hot pixels to my camera’s sensor, talk about cosmic radiation and cameras), I have visited 6 different cities (not including the layovers), slept in 9 different hotels or other accommodations (including couches) and have driven 7 different rental cars.
*phew* … I’ll need a tour manager soon
