Yesterday evening I made a presentation about large format photography to the City of London & Cripplegate Photographic Society and received a very welcome. I covered all aspects of large format that I’ve used throughout my career on both 5×4 & 10×8, from portraits to still life and on into landscape.
I now run Large Format workshops both for complete beginners through to experienced practitioners. There will be a two day introductory to large format landscape on 2-4 Nov 2012 in South Wales and refresher days on 16 March 2012, 27 April & 25 May either in London or Essex. I supply the cameras for these workshops so if you’ve been considering LF and want to experience it before buying a camera then perhaps a Shadows & Light workshop is just for you?
Another recent speaker at the same society was Red Saunders, a photographer from whom I learnt a great deal of LF skill and technique.
Apart from shooting landscape in this form I’ve also done a great deal of still life with art directors such as Pearce Marchbank.
