  1. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Ansel Adams’ best group portraits are, well, certainly memorable if not spine tingling.

    My choice of word “memorable” might not be popular.

  2. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I like how the two redwoods frame the three background kings.

    Did you use only front rise and nothing else?

    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    The big cats had no chance of seeing me when I trespassed for this shot.

  4. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    One might also keep in mind that turning a 4x5 camera on its side on a sturdy tripod and head can provide movements you didn’t think your camera had.

    For example, turn my 4x5 Tachi on its side,...
  5. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I think the most physically painful and emotionally stressful of any LF endeavor is macro work in the wilderness.

    Among those who have tried it, this might actually be a popular opinion winning...
  6. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I think Doremus is correct about back movements, as long as one distinguishes between geometric perspective and viewpoint perspective.

  7. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    People here will notice my enthusiasm when I post images taken with my 150mm g-claron – it is a “sweet” lens indeed. And I mean not just the lens, but the FL.

    Its normalcy often proves its...
  8. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I suspect my belief would be unpopular among LFers who think a tree is just a tree, but we might have more Freudians here than I thought! :D

    That reminds me of another personal belief that's bound to be unpopular!

    To a greater or lesser degree, every landscape image illustrates the photographer’s most pressing unconscious concerns,...
  10. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Many say they love LF because it helps them enjoy nature.

    Here’s one of my most unpopular responses…

    Concentrating on composition, focus, or metering dulls those senses not directly related to...
  11. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    As a 4x5 landscape lens, the Schneider 150mm g-claron performs beautifully wider than f/22, even producing lovely bokeh at its widest (f/9) for closer shots.
  12. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    The 150mm is an extremely exciting lens to use for 4x5 landscapes.
  13. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    The vast majority of LFers who wander from the hiking trail need to learn how to navigate without batteries – and find out what “10 Essentials” means.

    Especially the younger ones here. ;^)
  14. Re: Will Ries J-200 (or J-250) head couple with Gitzo GT3541LS tripod?

    One can always call Ries: 360-627-8795

    They answer my phone calls with expert knowledge and tips.

    Plus they’re friendly and fun to talk with.
