LARGE FORMAT PHOTOGRAPHY VIDEO WORKSHOP BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Tim Layton With 8x10 Large Format CameraTim Layton With 8x10 Large Format Camera "I have broken the information into three modules that loosely aligns to the classic trilogy by Ansel Adams (The Camera, The Negative, The Print), but I have completely modernized all of the information in addition to focusing in on the most relevant so that you can get up and running quickly.

This isn't a repeat of Ansel's classic texts.  I think my large format photography workbooks and associated HD videos bring the most important aspects of large format photography to life in a way that has never been done before.  

I teach you the things that you need to really know in order to focus on your creative pursuits as the priority and not be stumbling around with the underlying technical details.

I walk you through everything you need to know in order to get started in large format photography in this three-module video workshop series.  Based on decades of experience, I wrote this large format photography series in a way that is practical and accessible to everyone that has a passion for large format."  -Tim Layton
