Question from Ralph
Does this class cover how to put the film into the film holder?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Yes, learning to load your film into a holder is an important part of the process. The student will practice in daylight and then with eyes closed and then in a changing bag which is a portable darkroom and acts as cover for loading in total darkness. Since Polaroid and Fuji Film stopped their production of instant film we no longer make Polaroids as we used to but we do cover everything needed to understand the camera and enable one to make your exposures on sheet film.

The large format workshop was incredible! I had been wanting to get some hand's on experience, but never had the opportunity and was intimidated by the equipment. Jeffrey, the instructor, was the best! He was very experienced and knowledgeable, taught us everything about the a large format camera, and I had a wonderful experience and feel much more proficient in large format photography!
