The camera of choice of the likes of Ansel Adams and Jeff Wall (just to name a few well-known names ...), the Large Format camera (digital or analogue) gives the photographer total control over all aspects involved in creating an image with a photographic camera.

It creates photographs of incomparable quality as the result of the physical size of the image produced by the lens.

In addition to the above, its lens and film/sensor panels are operated independently exponentially increasing control over focus, perspective, and shape of what is been photographed.

Day 1

- HOW IT WORKS

- The large format features

- What happens when the lens is moved out its conventional position

- What happens when the film/sensor is moved out its conventional position

Day 2

- PRACTICE

- The group will produce one image (or more time allowing) using all techniques discussed

on Day 1

As an artist, Arnold has exhibited widely across South America and the UK. He is a Photography Lecturer at Goldsmiths in London and works as a freelance photographer for the arts and design sector.
