    I'm pretty much a total dilettante at most things I do, including, to some extent, photography. I have massive respect for Michael and Paula regarding their commitment to LF photography and contact...
  2. Re: How many film holders do you bring for a day out?

    You are not alone! My wife always enjoys asking me how many pictures I took after a day of LF photography. The number generally comes in between 1 and 4.
  3. Re: How many film holders do you bring for a day out?

    I agree with this. I shoot only B&W, and take 3 holders loaded with ASA 100 and 3 with ASA 400 in my pack, have the same in the car (for landscape). I can then trade out exposed film for unexposed...

    Re: question for you wet platers

    How do you know such things? I'm not questioning your answer, just wondering what resources there are out there. I'm kind of diving into Watkins, O'Sullivan, and the other survey photographers.

    What a nice subject, and excellent rendering.\. And not only is the lack of ramps and such good, but also the absence of surrounding buildings.
