Larger negatives produce gorgeous prints with fine details better than 35mm. In this class, students will get hands-on experience using a 4x5 camera, processing sheet film, and making contact prints in the darkroom. Learn basic camera functions including using tilts and swings to adjust perspective lines and focus, discuss 4x5 lenses, and learn how to load and use 4x5 film holders.
Students will practice making images with the 4x5 camera (either in the studio or outdoors), process their black & white film, and make contact prints in the darkroom. Prior darkroom experience is helpful. Bring your own large format camera or use one of ours. Included: $40 for film and access to darkrooms for the duration of the class.
