Project Basho is pleased to offer Creating Large Negatives with Large Cameras (http://www.projectbasho.org/workshops/2010spring/large-format-photography.html), a workshop for those interested in large format photography.

In this hands-on three-day workshop running Apr. 2-4, students will work with large and ultra-large format cameras to experience the making of large negatives and learn the advantages of different formats. A variety of format sizes including 4x5, 8x10, and 7x17 will be offered for students to try out in the field. A day trip will be arranged on the second day, covering technical points of consideration such as exposure, use of tripod, and composition.

This workshop is a great opportunity to explore large format photography in a very relaxed setting. I took the workshop two years ago and was amazed with the amount of time that I had use the various cameras. Trying a 7 X 17 is an amazing treat. Additionally, Project Basho is located in a neighborhood in Philadelphia that lends itself to exploring with large format gear.

I left the workshop energized by the new learning opportunities and convinced my wife and daughters that a 4 x 5 view camera would be the perfect way to celebrate my birthday.

Some careful bidding on Ebay resulted in a 4 x 5 Zone VI Field camera and I haven't looked back since.

My compliments to Tsuyoshi Ito and his very special Project Basho.
