    Thanks for the update! I'm sorry to hear of the delay with your camera. I hope it's nothing more than a delay and will arrive soon. I'm looking forward to learning you have it in your hands. Cheers!

    As I understand it, process lenses (including the Apo Ronar) are quoted in Rodenstock literature at 1:1 and at infinity. There is a lot of misleading information on the various forums about actual...

  5. Re: HMI or strobe for wetplate/paper negs/low iso

    I've used both strobes and tungsten hotlights (fresnel) for my portraits. IMHO, strobes offer the greatest amount of flexibility. And remember, you can still soften an image with strobes. Just drag...

    While I can't speak specifically to LF, I can make an observation on shooting film in general. I teach high school photography. 10 years ago many high schools closed their darkrooms (fortunately we...

  9. Re: Strobes vs Continuous Lighting with MF and LF?

    Since the OP referred to portraits, I'll speak specifically to that. (I wouldn't use strobes for still life but that's my preference.)

    Thanks, Jeff. Your solution was far more practical than mine. However, it makes me wonder how large of a pinhole camera I could effectively make? Perhaps pinhole would be a better solution.
