Large Format Portraiture Photography

Large format portraiture photography is the antithesis of digital photography.

The photographer must slow down, concentrate and think about what they are doing. This almost Zen like approach to image making, combined with the amazing quality of large format film, ensures an unique working experience.

In this one-day hands-on workshop you will learn how to correctly use a 5×4 monorail camera (Sinar). You will learn how to set-up the camera, how to load film into dark-slides, how to attach lens & control the shutter, how to focus the camera and you will be introduced to using camera movements.

Working in the studio with a model we will make a series of 5×4 portraits. We will be using standard (150mm) and longer lenses (210 & 240mm) to create the very shallow depth of field images that large format is famous for.

During the lunch break all the films will be processed and we end the day in the darkroom, printing images from the negatives shot earlier.
