Going Back To Photography Basics,

many years ago photographers would carry a 8 X 10 camera with them,

 one of the reasons a camera this big was used is that it could capture so much detail,

 and by varying the bellows stunning pictures could be taken, 

 some large format photographers are still very much talked about today, think Ansel Adams,

whose photographs are still popular today, which brings me onto the the ‘Intrepid 8x10 Camera’, which it claims is the “the most affordable and lightest production 8x10 Camera ever”, to give more people access to this form of photography, The Intrepid Camera Co. has produced this functional camera which is fold-able and compact, making it very easy to carry with you wherever you go weighing just 2.2kg, in addition to shooting traditional film, the Intrepid 8x10 Camera also lets you experiment with alternative processes, such as wet plate and paper negatives, now we really are going back to basics, 

if you are interested in making super huge negatives and prints, remember you will need a dark room, have a look at the Kickstater page here, and no I am not on commission, I just thought it was a great retro way to make stunning photographs.
