    Workshop on east coast or Mentor?

    received some great advice to take a workshop or seek a mentor in LF. I live in NJ but will travel to a reasonable destination. Would love to learn how to use my ROC carlton, load the film and how to process it. My email is the best way thanks Would also take an online course !

    These folks go back to early 80's. Can't vouch for their current programs....and I do see quite a bit of digital curriculum. Good luck.

    It looks like the ICP in Manhattan has a course in Large Format.

    There is also an organization in Philadelphia (the name escapes me) that may have an appropriate program. They post here occasionally. I hope someone will know who I'm talking about, and chime in.

    What you ask for is fairly basic. I think with a post in the "Groups & Meetings" forum you could find someone willing to help you out.

    Contact our own Ken Lee - I think he does one on one workshops tailored to your interest.

    While I was going to ask the OP where in NJ he lives (I would love to be able to help him) his interest in LF was triggered by the ROC Carlton camera he was given (he had another thread to learn something about the camera), which is apparently not 4x5, and may not use normal film holders due to its age. I guess my question is aimed at both the OP and those on the forum familiar with really old equipment: how much does he need "custom information" versus the standard LF that he might find in workshops (or learn from any of us)?

    Best workshop I ever attended was Michael Smith and Paula Chamlee. A weekend with them is like two weeks elsewhere.

    ICP has some great courses and a really nice facility to boot. (I teach there, but not LF)

    Andy - check out Steve Sherman - he's close by and you won't be disappointed:

    p.s. Many here have glowing reviews of his workshops.
