    Need info on Large format workshops

    Hi friends,

    I am looking for an opportunity to learn large format photography and get started in large format photography. Mainly looking forward to landscapes.
    Have some experience with medium formats and 35mm but large format is what I wanna aim for and development of my own.

    So, request you to let me know if you are aware of anyone teaching large format art and the development of the negatives.

    Regards,
    Abhishek

    Hello Abhishek and welcome to APUG.

    I hear about large format workshops out in the western states like California but there is nothing here in St. Louis. The camera clubs here are mostly filled with digital shooters. I don't know what Minneapolis is like.

    There are some Community Colleges that still teach film and large format. You might check that out.

    APUG is great but there is another forum that you might be interested in also. It's called Large Format Photography Forum. It's all about large format photography of course. Check it out and click on the Home Page for a wealth of free information. Quite a few of us APUG members belong there also (me included).

    Also google Ken Lee photography. Besides Ken's beautiful photography, he has a tech page that you may find very useful. Ken is a moderator on Large Format Photography forum and a great guy.

    This should be enough to get you started.

    YouTube has a lot of videos on large format photography. Stuff like how to load film holders, developing film, how to use movements on a view camera, etc.

    Watching video can really help.

    +1, Michael is great, I took an intro to LF workshop with him in 2012 and it was great.

    Hook up with your local APUGS on shooting outings and you will get all the OJT you can stand.
    Maybe start here.

    I will be teaching an intro to Large Format class in the spring, here in Washington DC, but it is not a one-weekend workshop so it might not be a good fit for you. I'd be willing to run a version of the course as a workshop if you were interested.

    For local/regional, you might try the bulletin board at West Photo in the spring (or call them). Also, Minneapolis Photo Center might have some info/leads. I've never seen anything specific to LF from the local community ed type resources. My fear is that most local workshops will be geared toward digital.

    I don't know specifically what you're looking for, but I would assume there would be some demand for a workshop that focused on the elements specific to LF sheet film (camera movements, workflow, development and printing) for those already familiar with roll film.
