    Re: Winter Weather Photography

    Some of the best winter photography can happen if one goes to the opposite hemisphere.

    Chile, not so chilly some time between Christmas and New Years.
  2. Re: Fujinon 180mm. f/9 - Curious about some specs.

    In very low light situations you might have issues, but one should still be able to work with it. I have used f11 lenses under the redwoods...a good darkcloth and time for the eyes to adjust will...

    Re: Tech Pan 8x10 in a Jobo - Looking for Info

    Good luck with the film! I got some great contact prints (carbon print) on it using it in a Diana camera, developed in technodol, and some 4x5 carbon prints along the way too. But this was due to...

    Re: Winter Weather Photography

    Once all the maples, alders, berries, etc lose their leaves under the redwoods, the scenes open up wonderfully in the winter -- best time to photograph in the redwoods other than the past two months...

    17" tall. There is one that is 24" tall. Two lb and 4 lb respectively. They looks interesting...never used on.

    Re: Cursed image - Pyrocat-M salvage

    I would like to re-make this image, using two 4x10 negatives instead of two 4x5 negatives...though two 5.5"x14" negs would also be sweet. Some limbs have grown across in the last 3 decades or so,...

    Re: Cameras with geared swing movement

    Agreed. My 4x5 is a rail camera that is about as far from a Sinar as a VW Bug is from a Porsche. But if they both get you to where you need to be, the difference is reduced to personal...

  11. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Worth a thousand words!
  12. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Another thing to consider is whether 'proper' perspective is something to always aim for. I make images, I do not make copies of landscapes. Trees do not always grow straight, so sometimes I tilt...
  13. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Mud, no. But perhaps chicken soup, though!:cool:
  14. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Might be better to think of it as related to the plane of the film, rather than the whole camera. If the camera is pointed up, but the back is vertical, it is the same as having the camera level and...
  15. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    No -- a center column does not change the relationship between the lens and the film...just lifts both up in the air equally. "Rise" functions by changing the vertical relationship between the two...

  17. Re: Printing Glass Plates: How to avoid breakage?

  18. Re: How Too Much Tilt Can Tilt the Beginner's Brain

    I had the same thought when I read 'typical landscape image'. Once I see the image I want, set the camera up, and get it on the GG, I'll have a pretty good idea of any focusing/DoF issues that I'll...
  19. Re: How Too Much Tilt Can Tilt the Beginner's Brain

    I use every movement my camera is capable of for every image...I just use most of them zeroed out most of the time.

    Early on, I'd tie the 4x5 cameras in knots until in frustration I'd zero...
  20. Re: Marketing Platinum Portraits in 11x14 , Is this posible and then How?

    The major draw back to photographing in 11x14 is if the client wants a smaller print!
  21. Re: Is this bellows sag? Trying to identify cause of unexposed portion of image

    This is one of the reasons I like clipped corners on the GG (in addition to checking lens coverage)...this is very easy to see. You can do the same looking thru the front of the lens and checking...

    Re: I need advice on 11x14 film holders.

    The 'T' refers to the depth the film sits in the holder -- this is important as the film must be on the same plane that the GG occupied when focusing.

    I use mostly Fidelity holders, but have an SS...
  25. Re: Regarding depth-of field curvature with tilt

    I had not thought about that in that way. Thanks. Using that concept to maintain or to create a sense of space in an image is helpful. Like 'atmospheric distance', which does partly rely on far...

    Re: New Ultra-Light Chamonix 810 Camera

    Nice video. I have an 11x14 Chamonix, which looks a lot like an enlarged 8x10 Alpinist. The 11x14 weighs similar to my Zone VI 8x10...larger 'package' of course.

    Nicely thought out -- the...

    I tailor the contrast of each negative to the alt printing process to be used, so I need to pay a little more attention to such things. An idiot perhaps, but no hero. :cool:

  32. Re: 4x5 without a backpack for the beginner, non-trekker, etc.

    Nice set-up!

    Another way is to keep the camera on the tripod and over one's shoulder, and operate out of a shoulder bag big enough for holders, meter and needed stuff. I do it for 4x5 and 5x7. My...

    Re: Discussion on Tripod Heads for 8x10

    I use a Ries A100 with the 250 head for both 8x10 and 11x14. A touch over-kill perhaps for the first, but not for the 11x14. I am not backpacking with these cameras, so the weight of the head is not...
