Large Format Portraiture

Posted on November 7, 2012


I want to start using my Ebony 5×4 camera for portraits. I will probably use it along with digital for the Long Exposure Portraits. This is a test shot I did a while ago…Very plain lighting – just available light…and my poor wife dragged away from painting and decorating. Still I think this approach has potential. I am currently attending a darkroom processing course at the City Lit in London so that I can start doing my own black and white processing. This will provide a low cost entry to getting used to the 5×4.

Here is the image:
