Hi everyone,
I am new to the LFPF, I have been using view cameras for a few years. I shoot architecture and landscapes. This fall I am heading up to UP Michigan on Lake Superior shore, and will photograph out of a Kayak. I have been reading the forum and find it most helpfull.

Hi Stan,

Welcome to the group.

Is that to say you'll be using a LF camera out of the kayak for your landscape images? That should be an interesting experience!

Do post some pics from the shoot, ok?

Hi Stan,
I'm another new member here, living in Minnesota. Your upcoming kayak trip caught my eye. Several years ago Minnesota-based photographer Craig Blacklock published a book titled "The Lake Superior Images" where he circumnavigated Lake Superior by kayak with 4x5 camera aboard. Beautiful images!

You'll probably have access to sites unreachable by the car/hike photographer. Have a great time!
