If you are into analog photography and ever wondered why some photographers still swear by using large format (4x5, 8x10 and over), this workshop is for you. This youtube video will give you a flavor

We will be going through an explanation of the large format cameras and the possibilities it offers.

We will be shooting portraits of a model and eachother in the PICZ studio with the Large format camera and the camera you bring with you.
After the shoot, we'll be demoing the one-bath development process as well so that you can see the end to end process.

We will be using Large format film on a 4x5 and an 8x10 camera. One of the cameras will have a 120 film back as well, so you will have the opportunity to shoot with 120 film as well, while enjoying the full tilt and shift movements of the large format camera.

Who is it for ?

What to bring
Analog camera and/or

Since we are incurring expenses to organize this workshop, we expect that people who register actually show-up. Since there have been some problems with this in the past we have had to start a "two strikes and you're out" for no-shows. So, if your plans change, please un-register before the workshop or let us know via other means.
