For those of you who don’t know…

This is a  4×5 Large Format Camera. It’s over 50 years old. It takes awesome pictures.

It shoots film. One frame at a time. The negative is actual 4 inches x 5 inches.

The resolution is awesome.

I was recently blessed with some of the last remaining 4×5 Polaroid film left in the universe.

Here are some samples of what the images look like

So my friends, my POLAROID PROJECT Begins.

Look for new images every so often. I’ll assign a separate gallery for them soon.

Also…

The FOURXFIVE event is coming.

It is something I’ve been chewing on for a while.

Here is what it will look like.(I think)

There will be one or more 4×5 cameras available.

This will your chance to use a 4×5.

Shoot with it or have a portrait made of yourself or whatever you wish.

Each camera will have a photographer attached to it to help you use it.

(Any one out there know how to use one? Call me)

I will donate the 4×5 film. You will pay for processing.

When we figure out prices and dates. I will post them.

After the film and prints come back we have a party to show them off.

Here is what I want everyone to understand.

This will be a chance to celebrate the art of photography, the beauty of film.

Remembering that it is okay to take ONE image every FIVE minutes

instead of 5 frames in 1 second.

In the mean time,

If you are photographer, student, lover of the art. Get your portrait made with a 4×5.

I am happy to do it. I’ll donate my time and film.  You pay for printing and processing. Maybe it will become part of an exhibit one day.
