  1. Re: First and hopefully only lens for landscape?

    Not compared to my Fuji W 360mm plasmat! :cool:

    But lots of movements and fast. Esstee: You will find that stop-action 8x10 work is not easy, but by no means impossible or improbable. Depth of...
  2. Re: First and hopefully only lens for landscape?

    Fuji W 300/5.6 (or European equal) -- in a Copal 3 shutter. It was been my 8x10 one-lens...perhaps leaning more towards landscapes than portraits, though.

    On the wide side of normal for the...

    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    Something to consider, while I do not know how often they can be found in shutters, Red Dot Artars can be found at 12" (305 mm) and 273 mm and 355 mm. They are f/9 lenses. Very sharp.

  17. Poll: Re: Landscapers, please share wisdom about scouting

    I do not scout, generally. I am more interested in the light that I am seeing and prefer to wander with the camera until the light, place, and me all come together. I would not call that...

    Re: Making a photobook from darkroom prints

    We made a quick book for a photo class back in 1979. Everyone made copies of their image on 8x10 paper, we drymounted the photos back-to-back, and had Kinkos coil-bind them. Cheap and easy. Everyone...
  26. Re: What is the Most Difficult Large Format Photography

    ...or it is too easy. Landscapes can be the same way.

    But basically, I'd say any image-making where time is an issue can be a challenge for LF.

    Re: Need More LIGHT: Should I start PUSHING?

    That is a little confusing, but I think you mean that using a shorter focal length lens is the key...either using one on a smaller format to get the same view, or on a larger format and cropping.
