Handmade Large Format Photography
Instructor: Tom Persinger
In this exciting two day workshop weâ€™ll use the most readily available materials to create fully functional large format cameras (which use modern film holders) and lenses. Weâ€™ll use inexpensive lithography film and a special developer to make large negatives that have a full tonal range but cost a fraction of the price of conventional 8Ã—10â€ film. Armed with these simple tools weâ€™ll explore their use in the field.
Not only will you leave this class with a camera and lens, but youâ€™ll also receive a reference sheet with the chemistry formulas, and information on how to compute and determine field of view, f-stops, etc so you can continue to add to the system.
No experience necessary.
Class is limited to six participants.
