Video: How to take photographs with a 5×4 plate camera

In a how-to video produced for the museum, photographer Simon Roberts takes us through the process of photographing with a 5x4 plate camera.

Simon explains how the camera works and why this process forces the photographer to think about composition.

For Simon, it’s about crafting something that people will study, rather than the snapshot aesthetic.

Simon explains how the film is processed, and why that results in a better quality print.

In the lab, get a glimpse into the printing process, testing, and finally, the photographs’ presentation.
