    Shooting Checklist

    So I'm writing up my shooting steps for LF and I wanted to share them to see if someone has an alternative flow / perspective. Thanks for your input.

    Best, Angus

    25 and 26 look to the in the wrong order if you plan on test firing the shutter. Personally I attach the cable release when I mount the lens.

    I usually check for traffic/trains/wildlife/tourist groups at various stages to avoid sudden scares 8-)

    I never get beyond 24 or 25 before I run out of time and have to go home

    If I say I need to get up, shower, shave, get dressed, have a cup of coffee, and hit the road before 7:00am, and I had a list that detailed, I'd never make it. As Graham noted, don't pull the darkslide until after you have tested the shutter.

    25 and 26 are reversed, unless you like your negatives always at full Dmax.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    I do most of this intuitively but for ULF I always forget things like bellow draw and mess things up. So I thought I'd put it all down!

    Bellows draw compensation is a function of magnification, which i expect will be much less with a ULF camera.

    #23 Remove Darkcloth. Not sure about this one. I have always used the darkcloth to cover the camera back when removing and inserting a darkslide.
