View Full Version : Today is the day
After reading and reading and asking numerous questions for the last couple of months today is the day I head out to the Columbia Gorge in Oregon for my first adventure with my Tachihara 4 x 5 and a couple of large format photographers. Thanks to everyone for all the help and patient responses to what can be a daunting endeavor. I will post some photos as soon as I get them.
Time to quit talking and start walking.
Enjoy your Tachi Gary. Be patient and ƒ32. :D
Thanks to Mike and Robert Brummitt I had a fantastic time in the Columbia Gorge on the Washington side. I made numerous mistakes, including pulling the wrong dark slide, not locking down the focusing rails, forgetting to cock the shutter, and a few others, but it was all in good fun and part of the learning curve. They were more than patient and gladly shared their advice.
Don't feel embarassed. I've been shooting view cameras for thirty years and still
manage to double expose a sheet from time to time, or forget to close the shutter
first. Sometimes when I'm in the Columbia Gorge I am concentrating so much
on keeping the film and myself reasonably dry that I do something really stupid.
My in-laws live near the Gorge so I sometimes spend a day there. Beautiful place!
