Quite often the various digital photos made on the poodlewalks are scoping studies for my large format photography. I study the uploaded digital images on the computer screen to see if they would work for large format; and, if they do, then I figure out the right conditions for making the photo. It is part of the slow photography movement.
One of the poodles would usually accompany me on the large format photo session as it is often incorporated into a poodlewalk. They stay close and often engaged in making the photo. The emphasis is on simplicity and being in the moment.
The central hub of large format photography in Australia is the View Camera Australia website, which is run by David Tatnall in Melbourne. It is an excellent showcase of this approach to slow photography in Australia.
