Class: Handmade Large Format with Tom Persinger

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Handmade Large Format Photography
Instructor: Tom Persinger

In this exciting two day workshop we’ll use the most readily available materials to create fully functional large format cameras (which use modern film holders) and lenses. We’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 8×10” film. Armed with these simple tools we’ll explore their use in the field.

Not only will you leave this class with a camera and lens, but you’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.
