    Re: exposure issues using a DSLR as a lightmeter

    Also, if you're using longer focal lengths make sure you calculate for bellows extension.

    Re: Large Format Landscapes

    I think your water is too alkaline, make sure you're using distilled water to mix with your chemistry and do the first and second rinse if your tap water is too basic.

    Re: HDR technique using 4X5 film

    As mentioned above, get the Enfuse plugin for Lightroom. It is the only high-dynamic-range software of any kind that gives natural looking results in my experience.
