  1. I am an experienced landscape photographer currently working with digital negatives for platinum printing. I have recently purchased a book 4/5 soft focus lens and also have a pickham smith 8×10 soft focus lens. I have done precious few figure work but have a vision to use these lenses with nudes. I know it is not in the Weston tradition using soft focus but I am looking more for the glow these lenses can produce rather than overall soft focus effect. I was wondering if you think it would be beneficial to spend a day or two in a private to get used to photographing nudes and reacquainting myself with film and large format.

    • Hi Richard,
      I think it would be very beneficial for you to come to Wildcat Hill for a One on One workshop and get reacquainted with film and large format. Kim is a pro at both of those subjects.
      Lets figure out a date that works.
