Chris briefly explores a 40-year old film format, the 110 pocket film. He has a few observations on what’s the best time to buy a new camera (hint: not two weeks before an important vacation as you won’t have time to build your muscle memory). In this episode we’ll also take a closer look at two pictures from two of the Iceland 2014 tour members, Don Komarechka has a question on lenticular photography and the Nimslo camera and Tony wants to find out the best way to get pixel-accurate crops of his pictures in Lightroom.
Kirk wants to buy 35mm film and Chris takes him through several alternatives, where to buy and how to develop, Rob has a question about contrast and Chris explains some photographer’s lingo and what “one stop” exactly means.
Find out the secret behind the reflection picture on the last episode, Release Pixie Matt Ravsitar Armstead has a great tip with regards to coin photography, James wants to start a photo club, we’ll look into the differences of sharpness in film and digital and we’ll find out what photography and gardening have in common.
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.
