PHOTOGRAPHY SUMMER SESSION 4
JULY 2–14, 2023
This workshop will use large-format (4×5) cameras to explore the language and craft of analog photography. Through technical demonstrations, guided exercises, and lots of practice in the darkroom, students will gain complete compositional control of their images using the view camera’s tilt, swing, shift, and rise movements to adjust focus, perspective, and image shape. Students will process sheet film and make darkroom prints to produce a small portfolio of self-expressive photographs. No darkroom experience required. Cameras provided. All levels.
