This last weekend I have attended a large format photography course with Dav Thomas and Tim Parkin. It was a full day introductory course with six other keen novices. We were blessed with beautiful weather and spent the day on the Roaches in the Peak District. Having admired my camera lovingly for several weeks now, I can now admire it for what it can do, not just how beautiful it is!!! It was such a relief to understand the basic processes, equipment and chat with others. And I was blown away the first time I went under the cloth and looked through the glass of my ebony. It really is something else. I totally understand how people fall for this type of photography.
There are several bits of equipment that my bag is missing including a loupe and light meter, oh and of course film which I could do with getting.
I'm itching to get started now.
Thanks guys for a very enjoyable day!!
