    Re: Practical Movements for 90mm 4x5

    Architectural work is the most demanding, and some rise and swing can be useful as well. Once the mechanism for a movement is included in the design, it seems like a reasonable amount of adjustment...

    Okay, I think I know what you did, except for "rise/fall". (which one? I guess rise).

    With such tall objects, it may have been impossible to have their tops sharp when using tilt (assuming...

    Nice one!

    I used to live on the Palouse, over 40 years ago now, so this brings back memories.

    One question though -- did you use any movements, or was the film plane tilted? The silo at right...

    Re: My Set Up for Film Holder Labels

    Most of my photos are work-related (documentation, not art), and location, date, and time are very important, so unless I am on a casual trip, I take a notebook with me. I also record focal length,...

    Thanks for posting such a strikingly good image. I like the strong geometric aspect to it, and the strong lighting too. The only thing I can think of that may improve it is a wider field of view -- I...

    Four 1/4 pounds is less than I thought it would weigh. Some of the folding 4 by 5's weigh more than this (mine weighs 6.5, with lens (135 mm Kodak WF Ektar), no rangefinder, and a quick-connect plate...

    Some suggestions:

    Ask if there is a room that could be made dark enough to load film, at least. This will be much easier at night, before the moon is up, assuming they don't have bright outdoor...
