Thread: Back In The Game.

    Back In The Game.

    30 Years ago I studied Photography at a Community College in Spokane, WA where a 4x5 camera was required. After that I went on to photograph portraits professionally. Within 5 years of leaving college I had sold off all my large format equipment in exchange for a 500cm, 80mm lens, 2-120 backs and a prism.

    I loved the large camera and missed it often. Even to this day when I want to photograph for myself ( as apposed for a client ) I photograph in a large format "style". I enjoy photography best when I am able to pre-visualize take my time and work at a slow pace. Very much the opposite of the fast paced portraiture I've been doing for years.

    I have obtained a Toyo 45g, Fujinon 210mm and changing bage. Dark cloth, light meters, film holders, and magnifying loupe(s) I was able to dig out of storage. Tri-x and EKtar 100 on order and due for delivery.

    Pretty stoked.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    Welcome Home!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Glad to have you and your not alone. Seems many have been left feeling flat w/ a constant digital diet and are looking for the "craft and magic" that large format can offer once again.
