this is a bit dumb question, but how do you manage to put 4x5 step tablet with a film on the film holder (sandwitch -style)? This is the most common style that I have seen and is taught by books (except BTZS).
But I cannot put it on my holders, the step tablet itself will fit fine like does film. But film plus step tablet. No way, the holders are just too tight!
Earlier I used small step tablet, but full 4x5 size is a lot better.... If I manage to put it in the holder.
What are other options? Use of darkroom and enlarger, but as I use also orthopan and full orthochromatic films, the color of enlarger light source can affect results too much.
Also by exposing wedge thru camera, all camera inducted problems come to taken account like in real life.
How about just putting wedge against transparent glass fit it on the negative holder, illuminate it evenly from back and take photograph from it?
Ofcourse, the bellows extension factor must taken in to account.
What's your method?
