Try shooting with intent and purpose.
I took my P45 and ALPA tech camera to Iceland in 2010, camped in the glaciers and had zero problems with capture or batteries (it was below freezing at times). I have photographed with the P45 here...
Bought!! I will have a look at it later tonight!
I do not think there is a quick release (QR) system with your tripod head, but you may be able to use an add-on, but I would not if I remember how my Ries head was designed (sold years...
What tripod head are you using?
I do not believe that is a 'quick release plate'. I believe it is the original tripod plate. You would need to attach a quick release plate to it that would be accepted by your tripod. I...
Are you saying a person's age has a lot to do with being a master printer? If so, I wholeheartedly disagree.
BTW, what age would you consider 'master status'?
I would do a test shoot side-by-side with your MF and LF. Same film, processing, scanning and printing if possible. If they still look the same, send the film for processing to a lab (not home...
I used them for two years when I was in the last years of my commercial portrait/special event work. It made it easy for consumers to purchase prints directly on line and then have my lab of choice...
Thank you Ken!! :)
If you want serious user experience with working, owning, buying and selling digital backs + tech cameras, this is not the group of photographers to ask--you need to ask experienced users of this...
Drew, you may be right, but a lot of film cameras have dropped to the cellar as well. Have you priced them lately? I bought my P45 used and have used it for three years now and have no intention on...
As far as focusing goes, I shot this using a hyperfocal technique (easy):
1946 Clipper Deluxe
Alpa Max | SK 47 | F11 |...
Owning a digital back will save you a tone of time. I ran out of time for film processing and scanning. I grew to dread the scanning part a lot!
I shoot a P45 with an Alpa Max and two lenses (SK...
I really would not trust that tripod. I once put a Wisner 5x7" on a Gitzo that was rated for up to 4x5", I learned quickly what "up to" meant shortly after racking it out. A later phone call to...
Thanks Jackie, but I need more notice (maybe next year?). I have animals (more than the average) I would need to make arrangements for and work to schedule around, but I will be following the blog....
Love it--wish I was a part of it (I am woman)!!

And you dodged paying your shipping fee for a print exchange in the past. Get over it!!
I had to validate your uploads--done!
Sorry, but the SPAM attacks started a couple of years ago and so I had to implement this extra step of validation!
Do not offer refunds period.
Thank you Mike. I may be good at administration tasks, but it is the photography and the personalities that keep me motivated. You have been a participant since I started coordinating these exchanges...
The web gallery is opened for your 2012 uploads!!

See you next year, Darr

Thank you Daren! I am always looking for your work! :)
Wayne, Thank you! Thank you! and one more, THANK YOU!! ;)
That sucks!! Sorry for the @#$%, but I have 2 iPhones and I use one for something other than a phone (no service).
Thanks for the heads-up!
Thank you Bill. I appreciate your patience with me this year when I accidentally put someone in front of you. I am getting older, but more mellower at least! ;) Hope to see you next year!!
Wow, thanks John!! Your participation is always something I look forward to!
"When Eastman Kodak Company announced the discontinuation of its line of professional color reversal films on March 1 it was the latest disappointment in a months-long string of miserable news from...
Thank you Alan. Patience is something photography teaches me everyday. ;)
I am grateful for you and the exchange photographers that join in sharing our craft. The gifts received are always...
Thank you Scott. You always make me feel appreciated!

An extra special...
Group Five Is Complete!!
5/5/2012: I have received prints from the following photographers:
1. Darren Kruger
2. Bill Burk
3. Roger Cole
4. Vishal Mathur
5. John Bowen
I picked them up today. I will try to get this last batch sorted and ship-ready for Monday.
I think Scott's jet blew past Chris's truck!!
My bad. I know the design is different. I guess floating elements are on other type lenses.
See this thread, it explains how the macro lenses are constructed and "No floating elements" ;)
A floating element may be included in the lens design so it can focus closer than normal lenses.
:) :) :)
I am sure one of our lens gurus here on the board can add more. I am a macro shooter and...
