Large Format Photography Workshops
Alex Bond Photographer
Introduction to large format photography:
The aim of this workshop is to introduce you to a large format 4x5 inch field
camera, provide some first hand experience with its workings and techniques, with
applications to both portrait and landscape work.
If you have ever wondered about the advantages of using a large format camera in
your work and what’s involved, or are considering large format for your photography,
then this is for you.
This workshop will be conducted outdoors along the wooded banks of the Canning
River Reserve, so you can see and experience using a 4x5 field camera in a real life
situation. Through various discussions and field demonstrations, including some
with Polaroid instant 4x5 film, Alex will guide you through the process of using and
choosing a large format camera. Discussion will also include choice of film types
and applications, film loading, processing, lens choices and printing options including
The Canning River Reserve will provide ample subject matter and an ideal learning
environment for participants to gain experience in using a 4x5 field camera within a
group setting. Participants who have their own film or digital camera, regardless of
format, are encouraged to bring it along.
To maximise the experience, workshop numbers are limited to a maximum of 6 people. For dates, times and booking information, visit my web site and follow the workshop link http://www.alexbond.com.au/workshops/workshoponline01.html
