Through many conversations, emails asking for help, and talking to new and aspiring large format photographers, I have developed a comprehensive introduction to getting started with large format photography in video form because it is much easier to learn and understand the concepts visually for most people.

I have broken the information into three modules that align 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.
