How to... Take photographs with a 5x4 plate camera - Simon Roberts

Blogger: Emma James, Web Content Coordinator

In the first of our series of 'how to' videos, Simon Roberts takes us through the process of photographing with a 5x4 plate camera (Ebony).

He 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.

Simon Roberts: We English exhibited at the Museum in 2010, and the exhibition is now part of our touring programme.
