Learn new skills and techniques to improve upon your large format photography skills.
Through in-depth demonstrations and hands-on shooting experiences, students will move beyond basic view camera operation and learn to use advanced camera movements and techniques with the large format camera. We'll explore how to use camera movements to control depth-of-field and image geometry, how to choose the best focus point and calculate depth-of-field and how to calculate accurate exposures for close-up photography.
Students will be encouraged to think about ways to advance their individual aesthetic and conceptual goals. We'll also discuss practical matters that arise when using the view camera in real-world situations, such as transportation and storage of equipment and lens choices. In the darkroom, we'll process our large format film, producing silver contact prints and enlargements from our negatives.
