Wishing to get a start in LF photography
I am a serious amateur photographer who feels that my vision and subject matter may be maligned by my current digital tools. In many ways, I want to become more deliberate and slow down the pace of what I am doing. Although I think looking into LF might be a possibility, I am a little apprehensive in additional investment yet more equipment and returning to the darkroom. Invariably, I would like to insert a little digital into the process (scanning the final negative, perhaps) for the purpose of limiting my darkroom expenses, etc.
Is there someone close to the Centreville, VA area that might be of assistance (everything from seeing LF results for my very own eyes to giving me an idea at how to start)? I've tried looking into some local LF courses, but am coming up with nil. Is there anyway I could perhaps rent any LF equipment first before buying?
