This weekend workshop will introduce students to photography using a large format view camera. These cameras are capable of taking exceptionally high-quality images,especially when shooting black and white negatives. They also allow photographers to use many historical processes such as collodion wet plate photography. The college will supply large format cameras, although students are welcome to use their own.
