Hi, all: I'm going to be hosting a workshop for those interested in trying large format studio photography. This will be a three hour, hands-on, end-to-end shooting & developing session with supplied 4x5 and 8x10 view cameras and lenses. The first hour we'll cover all movements and how they can be used for creative effect, aperture, depth of field, exposure compensation for bellows extension, macrophotography, and suchlike. We'll play with both strobe and continuous lighting. The second hour will be posing and shooting with an open-minded model, with a discussion on composition for portraiture and fine art nude. The final hour will be in the darkroom, developing your exposed film and producing your contact prints. This workshop will be tailored for experienced amateur photographers who are interested in pursuing large format photography but wish a little guidance and hands-on experience. The workshop will be held on a Wednesday evening in October (7 till 10pm) at a professional studio near the Lansdowne subway station. Free, secure, and monitored parking available. It should be a fun, relaxed, and informative evening covering all the practical essentials. I can accommodate up to 4 attendees, and there will be a fee to cover studio time, film & paper, and the model sitting fee. Please feel free to PM me if you are interested or would like to hear more as things firm up. Thanks, David.
