    Courses description

    Learn how to use a 5×4 large format camera. The negatives are 5×4 inches (approx 12.5x10cm) and give very high quality analogue photographs, which can be printed in the Folk House darkroom.

    The workshop will cover the operation of the camera, including the camera’s tilt and shift movements which are used to control the focus, shape and perspective of the image.

    The kind of things the camera movements can achieve are straightening of converging perspective lines, and minimising and maximising depth of field for the ’tilt-shift’ effect.

    We will use paper negatives for practice and move onto to exposing and developing sheet film, and can make contact prints from the paper and film negatives.

    End date: 2:48pm on Sunday June 2nd, 2024
