Take a Peek Into the Large Format Photography Process with Lúis Plácido

The term Large Format simply means big film size. Large format cameras use sheet film sized 4x5" or larger with the most common film sizes being 4x5" and 8x10". Why such a large film size? Because in photography, the bigger the film size, the better the quality. A larger negative produces better quality prints because it requires less magnification than a smaller negative would. Here's a short film that Spanish photographer Lúis Plácido shows us what goes on into a making a 20 × 25 (or 8″ × 10″) print, as well as the fascinating gear used to take these beautiful and highly detailed photographs.
