Large Format

During this lecture we were able to learn how to use a large format camera. Once we had finished I went ahead and completed some research as I still felt unsure on how to use this camera. I have included a link to a website which I found particularly helpful as the information is simple and effective. Large Format

We had to use a dark cloth over the top of the camera in order to see the image infront of us, the picture is printed upside down so you have to look closely to make sure that it is focused properly.

The large format cameras are very flexible, due to the folded material in the centre. This allows you to change the height, the angle and the direction of which you can take the photograph.


Below are the two images that we created using this. Once we had taken the image we had to develop the paper in order to see the photograph we had taken. IMG_0859IMG_0860
