Large Format Photography Techniques

  • Creative camera movements and lenses
  • Camera control and lighting techniques
  • Metering for optimal exposures


Large format photography is not as much about equipment size as it is about image control. Swing, tilt, rise, fall are the features of view cameras that allow you to create the image you want, and with appropriate lenses and techniques, allow you to make images that reveal the full potential of the photographic process in a way that less versatile formats cannot match.Along with more control come more obstacles to overcome. Exposure, vignetting, soft and out-of-focus images from small apertures are all things to consider when setting up the large format camera. Proper light metering and lighting techniques become critical to minimise your waste of time and money.

This hands-on workshop discusses these problems and demonstrates solutions in a logical and interesting way. This leads to better understanding how to optimise the use of your large format camera and lenses.
