Chris believes that there’s an alternative to shooting wide open, he’ll touch on external storage solutions for photographers, including Drobo and Synology and he will shine a light on when you need what kind of auto-focus mode on your camera.
Also: an interview with photojournalist Sven Tetzlaff about his visit to the Chinese view camera manufacturer Chamonix.
Chris has spent the last three days at a photography event like no other. After Dark is a very relaxed and highly creative meet-up of several hundred participating photographers and several tens of professional photographers who act as mentors and work with the participants on all kinds of projects, from small flash on-location lighting, working with models, fashion photography, post production, big studio setups, marketing, business, photoshop, … you name it. The event takes place at different locations throughout the year, this time it was in Kansas City.
Chris catches some of the atmosphere of After Dark and talks with the founder of After Dark, David Junion, and with Brian DeMint, photographer and one of the mentors at the event.

This episode marks the 7th year of TFTTF! If you have been with TFTTF from the start, then make sure to shoot Chris a quick note.
Chris also gets to talk to particle physicist Frank Linde, director of the National Institute for Subatomic Physics in the Netherlands. They discuss why and how cosmic particles damage the sensor in your camera and why that turns out to be not a real issue.
