$325

Large Format Photography Video Workshop Bundle

In the Large Format Photography Video Workshop Bundle, you get all three modules for a savings of $50.  Each module is $125 each and the bundle is $325, for a $50 savings.  

I have broken the Large Format Photography Video Workshop 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.  

I walk you through everything you need to know in order to get started in large format photography in this three-module video workshop series.  My focus is on practical application and I purposely avoid discussion of engineering principles and advanced mathematics.   

You can review all three modules on my website at https://www.timlaytonfineart.com/largeformat
