  15. Re: I would like to learn how to do macrophotography with my 8X10.

    The 360mm needs 720mm bellows at 1:1, so it depends on your camera and whether you are willing to buy extension lens board.
    At 1:2 you will need 360+360/2, and at 1:4 360+360/4 and so on.

    Remove the ground glass when measuring and make sure you are focused at infinity. Watch out for back-light.
