5 Weeks (5): Toronto – Beer, Big Cameras, 4×5

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.

3 Brewers TorontoNo 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.

MicrophoneI discussed big cameras on TFTTF with Sean Galbraith. Talking analog and large format with Sean is always a good thing and having a microphone around to bake it into a TFTTF episode is even better.

VideoThen on the weekend we held a 4×5 large format film workshop in Toronto. I shot some footage, edited it into a video and posted the video here.

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.
