Large Format Portraits

These family pictures were all taken on my large format camera.  I bought this camera a year ago and came close to selling it a few times.  It's very expensive to buy the film and have it developed.  It takes about 10 full minutes to set up one shot.  It's cumbersome and a total pain.  We have a love hate relationship, the large format camera and I.  I've always found it difficult to do portraits with this thing as I like to capture certain moments that's not quite possible with this camera.  However, using it in the studio has been pretty great.  So I think I'll keep it around for a bit.

PS this is what it looks like when I shoot with this monster of a camera:
