Out From the Darkcloth: Intro to Large Format Photography with paper negatives with Brittonie Fletcher @ Stills Centre for Photography, Edinburgh, Scotland 10 December 2023 Sunday, 11am—5pm

This short 1-day course will introduce you to the large format 5×4″ view camera using our range of Intrepid MK3 cameras. Large format simply refers to film size; the negatives produced are 5×4 inches, which lends itself to unrivalled image detail and quality. Hiding under a dark cloth to focus the image on the glass viewfinder, large format photography encourages us to slow down and carefully consider our image making decisions and choices. This format also produces images that are the perfect size to begin contact-printing in alternative and historic process or to enlarge for amazing detail.

By the end of the course, you will have an understanding of loading and using a 5×4 view camera, and shooting and contact-printing large format paper negatives.
