5 Weeks (2): Photo Day at TWiT

flattr this!

Photo Day 2012 at TWiT with Leo Laporte The recap continues. After the Washington D.C. workshop, I continued to San Francisco, or rather north of it to Petaluma in beautiful Sonoma County.

As in previous years, Leo Laporte was super awesome to let me have the TWiT studio again for a few hours to talk to interesting guest from the photography world, including kite aerial photographer Cris Benton. Over three hours of the four-hour event survived as a video on YouTube (but don’t worry if you don’t have the time to watch the whole thing, I will put pieces of it on the TFTTF podcast over the next months)

While up there, I also spent time at the TWiT studio to take a few group shots of the team:

Behind the scenes at TWiT – Part 1 of 3

While Chris was at the TWiT studio to record the third Photo Day in four years, he also shot a short behind the scenes documentary. It’s only marginally about photography, but if you have that geek gene, I’m sure you’ll appreciate it!

Chris at TWiTIt’s another Photo Day and Chris has made his way up to the TWiT Brick House in Petaluma to talk photography with Leo Laporte and guests!

The theme for this Photo Day is Photography outside the mainstream.

Among many other topics, Chris will hang out in studio to talk with Leo and guests to talk about the origins of Tilt/Shift, taking pictures from kites, digging up 1850s photo technology to create true works of arts and – of course – he’ll answer your questions!

Guests include Leo Laporte (Chief TWiT), Cris Benton (Kite Aerial Photography), Paul Sergeant (Tintype Studio) and Susan and Neil Silverman (travel photographers extraordinaire).
