This is an introductory class for photographers with a desire to use the view camera and large format photography in their work. The coursework covers 4×5 and 8×10 camera operation, large format sheet film, the zone system, darkroom printing skills, related equipment, and individual projects using the large format image. In addition to technical work specific to the view camera, this class focuses on traditional darkroom printing methods. Students learn to choose and handle appropriate equipment and materials, develop large format sheet film, and make fine prints on gelatin-silver papers. Each student will develop and produce a final portfolio of archival gelatinsilver prints. Available for use are 4×5 and 8×10 view cameras, light meters, darkroom equipment and chemistry. Students will need to supply their own 4×5 and 8×10 black & white sheet film and gelatin-silver papers (20×24 maximum paper size). Basic understanding of 35mm camera operation and exposure principles recommended.
