This project looked into the technical aspect of image making using a 4x5 large format camera.
For each image in this series, the bellows, tilts, swings, shifts, raises and falls were adjusted to see how the image area and the focus would be affected. The time of year, proximity to different state parks, and the possibility of making each image unique from the previous were all among reasons for choosing landscapes for my subject matter.
Negatives, once developed, were scanned to create digital files which were then minimally edited, to keep images as true to capture as possible, and then digitally printed on 11” x 14" luster photo paper and window-matted.
More images coming soon.
