The Art of the 4×5 View Camera with Sean Blocklin (Two sessions – SMC campus)

Through classroom demonstration and hands-on experimentation, this course will instruct students on the use of the 4×5 view camera and help them become proficient in every aspect of image creation. Assignments within genres will be given, including natural light portraiture, still life, architecture and landscape. Examples of view camera work (books, negatives, prints) and its history will be touched upon. Students will have time to work on their own with close instructor supervision.

The goal of the class is for students to gain a solid understanding of how they can use a 4×5 view camera to further their own photography, both technically and artistically.

View cameras will be provided, but students are welcome tor bring their own. For the purposes of this class, we will be using Ilford Direct Positive paper to get more immediate results. Students are encouraged to bring props/costumes for portraits and still-life images.
