    Re: Nighttime is the right time!

    Here is a post card I printed of a lunar eclipse gone wrong (5x7 neg contacted onto post card paper). The post card was taped to my office door for a few years.

    Tri-X, 5x7, 28" (710mm) lens,...

    Re: How to secure Sinar Norma Case for shipping

    I mailed off a Graphic View II off in its very nice case -- created a cardboard box around it...lots of tape. Not a lot of added weight and it arrived safely.

    Exactly -- it can be miserable, but we still enjoy it.

    As a climber put it..."No one climbs Everest for fun."
  6. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    How about "photography can be down right miserable."
    Great experiences and memories, but times that were in no way, fun.

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

    I think a lot has to do with how one approaches making images. Using only one lens per format for decades has trained me to make the most of my lens decisions prior to determining where the camera...
  9. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Yeah -- some folks seem to be sliding into sarcasm, but I'm going with what the OP asked for -- one's own beliefs/opinions about LF that are not popular with other LF'ers. 150mm on 4x5 is sweet.

    Re: Washington Beaches

    Sounds like a good exploratory trip.

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

    That's unpopular?! Certainly not with the "Every photograph is a self-portrait" crowd! (waving my hand amongst the redwoods)

    Ah, but composing is opening one's senses up to nature at its fullest, and every moment is divisive. Whoops, decisive. Where's Freud?

    Re: Out With My 14x17 DIY Camera & XRAY Film

    I like to judge my placement of the plane of focus by watching the change in DoF on the GG as I close the aperture down -- tough to do when I use my 600mm!

    Your processing practices (single tray)...
  14. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    Re: Out With My 14x17 DIY Camera & XRAY Film

    Fun video! One finds methods of working with a process to fit the size and type of space one has to work in.

    Any lens longer than 600mm and you'll need longer arms!
  18. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    You're welcome! :cool: My printing process (single transfer carbons) also reverses the image so I need to be aware of that when working with the image on the GG. I mentally flip the image around an...
  19. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    I like this. If one says 150mm, others will say vanilla. Not a popular 4x5 focal length, but should be.

    With exceptions, of course. And I would prefer 'equaled' rather than 'matched'. The quality is as high, but different.

    Re: Light leaks

    Yes, I see. I have a 5x7 Eastman View No.2. I have the sliding block they were designed with that helps to balance them easier (and stiffens up the camera at the hinge).

    That is an image of the bed of your camera.

    The front of the bed of the camera extended into the image area -- must have been a wide-angle lens.
  26. Re: Wet Plate Ultra Detail compared with todays films, WHY THIS HAPPENS ?

    Great image, Corran. The well placed depth of field stands the Volunteers out in the field.

    I have the FujiW 360/6.3. It's a heavy lens to be sure, but any 11x14 worth its salt can handle it. At infinity, I find I need to use it at f16 or smaller aperture to get the corners in...
