View Full Version : Wish me luck!
Hi, my name's Phil Norval and I've finally taken the leap into large format. I thought I'd just post this message as I've just loaded my first film into it's holder and I'm pretty excited about using it tomorrow. Fingers crossed I remember what to do. Any tips for a novice would be much appreciated :)
Welcome aboard, always good to have another LF shooter.
Don't forget to close the shutter before pulling the darkslide!
And vice versa, don't forget to put the darkslide back in before pulling out the film holder -- and remember to reverse it or otherwise keep track of which side of the holder you've exposed (it's annoying to shoot a double on one side and leave the other blank, though it's a mistake even Ansel Adams admitted to making occasionally).
Good luck, and have fun! Don't forget to breath :-)
Welcome aboard! Make sure the notches on your film are in either the upper right or lower left corners when you load your holders! :)
Lifes a journey not a destination..........enjoy the ride........:D
Its great fun. Welcome aboard.
Welcome to LF and welcome to the Forum.
