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.
No wait, let’s start with beer I met with a bunch of Torontonians (and non-Torontonians) the evening before the workshop. I even tried poutine for the first time. It’s almost like Pommes mit Soße, a staple of German cuisine, heheh.
In August 2012, ten people met in Toronto to celebrate one of the most magic ways of making photographs: with a 4×5 (and an 8×10) camera, using film. They spent three days to learn and explore every facet of the large format, from portraiture to landscape and architecture, from tilt and swing to rise and fall, from push to pull and from beginner to expert. This is the full version of the video.
In this episode of Tips from the Top Floor Huba has a tip on how to deal with new memory cards, Chris explains how he primes his memory cards before he first uses them and Andrew is interested in what makes a view camera tick.
