First Large Format Shots

This quarter I am taking a large format technique class. It's been difficult as there is a tough learning curve but so far I love it. I've learned over the last few years that I prefer analogue photography and after taking my black and white technique class last winter I discovered a passion and interest for traditional black and white photography. I love being able to see the photograph through from start to finish - shooting it, processing the film myself and printing myself. I find the whole process fascinating. So shooting black and white large format has been exciting. We get our own 4x5 field camera for the whole quarter which is awesome! 

Here are some of my first successful 4x5 shots so far....
