    Re: Why Large Format?

    I'm definitely not the Photo Math Man. I chose large format photography more than 40 years ago because of its ability to produce wonderful, grain-free, detailed images. I studied the Zone System, but...

    Re: Speedotron repair question

    I bought a brand new Speedotron Blackline 2405CX pack and two fan-cooled heads from Calumet in Chicago in about 1993 or 94. Not long after it arrived, I was using it when it suddenly failed to...

    Steven,
    My "half-assed" approach to the Zone System (so named because I don't have the brain power or patience for a lot of testing) calls for reading the shadows where I want detail and then...

    Reinhold -- great shot. Just curious; when you're out and about photographing, do you seek permission before you venture onto private property, or do you just forge ahead and take the photos?

    Re: Wista 45DX Manual

    I envy you DX owners who are able to fold your lenses into the camera. I've got a DX (purchased new in about 1988), but it apparently has a bit of a different design than some other DX's in that it...

    Lighting for interiors

    Not sure I've started this under the right subject heading as it doesn't strictly apply to large format, but I have an interest in doing real estate photography. In my research on the topic (mostly...
