Explore your creativity
Learn alternative photographic techniques using the large format view camera and play with a variety of expired films. This class introduces the view camera to those photographers wishing to integrate large format film photography into their personal and professional work.
Participants will expose a variety of expired instant film (both 8×10 and 4×5) in an 8×10 Deardorff V8 camera, and learn how to control convergence and plane-of-focus through the camera movements—shift, swing and tilt. In addition to the technical work specific to the view camera, this class is a complete—although condensed—course in simple lighting and approach to shooting portraits with natural light. Participants are encouraged to bring their own 4×5 or 8×10 camera setups for Q&A.
