Although I know of and have seen 5×4 cameras – having never used one I’ve not REALLY known what it takes to take and produce a picture using one. And of course in the physical world of film – “producing a picture” also means making a print.
Found this on PetaPixel, found it interesting and thought I’d share.
Another video from Fstoppers.
Starting to watch this video I thought I’d be posting it here as an example of photographs being taken/used to make a difference in the world i.e. political leverage. But that sort of content is minimal in the video – instead – I just love his narrative – it’s a lovely mix of technical and arty – sometimes photographers can be terribly technical (myself included) or overly arty-farty and up their own backsides – but Jack Gescheidt‘s narrative is just an honest, forthright and dignified account of his project. Love the fact he’s so honest - admitting that as well as reasons of anonymity – nudes are used as an impact tool – to get people talking.
