View Full Version : Can Shen Hao Do This?
I am looking at getting my first 4x5 and its probably going to be the shen hao folding field camera. One thing I want to know since I have far less experience than the most of you is if that camera is possible of taking an image like this?
I like how the floor looks like it is 3D and almost flying out of the picture.

You should have no problem making that kind of photograph with a Shen-Hao. There's probably a little rear tilt exaggerating the near/far effect.
In a word yes. While the image is beautiful, the make and model of camera used to capture the image has probably less than 1% to do with the image. Get any camera you can afford and get to work with it. Happy New Year, now buy a camera and start using it. :)
If you have to ask, you need to learn more before you buy a camera.
Learn a bit more about View Cameras, on this site and elsewhere. You'll be glad you did.
The camera did not make the photograph: the photographer did. Yes, the SH will be capable of doing it, and so will almost any other field camera.
If that photo were only a function of hardware, a digital SLR and Tilt-Shift lens could have been used. Or software that layers multiple exposures with different focus.
