Greetings to all...
i recently got hold of my late grand dad's calumet 4x5, and am terribly interested in 4x5 photography as a whole..
I'm however quite puzzled about the metering process and was wondering if anyone could provide me with any help with regards to metering.... or perhaps direct me to some resources.
1. Where do we meter from? off the subject? in front of the lense? or off the ground glass, and what is the difference?
2. For the bellows compensation where we apply the formula,
"For example: a 210mm or 8" lens with 11" of bellows requires a one stop exposure increase (the difference between f8 and f11)."
Does this mean we increase the F stop from the original F8 (BEFORE THE CALCULATION)to the new F11, or from the original f11 to the New F8?
once again.. thanks to all for the help and reply.. and i'm eagerly looking forward to develop my first set of chromes.
