In this 4-hour workshop, instructor Phillip Chin will show participants how to use a 4x5 camera to capture and develop 4x5 b/w paper negatives and contact prints! Topics include an overview of the 4x5 camera, loading paper into the film holder, exposing for the image, developing and fixing the paper negative and making the contact print.
Participants will make 3 paper negatives and contact prints during the workshop. All materials are included in the workshop fee.
Note: Participants can bring their own 4x5 equipment to use so they can reproduce the process at home.
