    Re: Music as analogy for LF photography

    My son sent me a short video he captured at a rave in the middle of Tokyo's airport...so I think the answer to your first question is, "I can't hear you! What did you say?!"

    Thank you. Looking at the print, I am afraid my light-weight image processing program and skills have darkened the lower values some. The print does contain some deep blacks, but smaller areas than...

    Excellent points, Heroique.

    Some of the best winter photography can happen if one goes to the opposite hemisphere.

  23. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Another thing to consider is whether 'proper' perspective is something to always aim for. I make images, I do not make copies of landscapes. Trees do not always grow straight, so sometimes I tilt...

    Mud, no. But perhaps chicken soup, though!:cool:
  25. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    Might be better to think of it as related to the plane of the film, rather than the whole camera. If the camera is pointed up, but the back is vertical, it is the same as having the camera level and...
  26. Re: Does extending the center column accomplish the same thing as front rise?

    No -- a center column does not change the relationship between the lens and the film...just lifts both up in the air equally. "Rise" functions by changing the vertical relationship between the two...

  29. Re: How Too Much Tilt Can Tilt the Beginner's Brain

    I had the same thought when I read 'typical landscape image'. Once I see the image I want, set the camera up, and get it on the GG, I'll have a pretty good idea of any focusing/DoF issues that I'll...

    Re: I need advice on 11x14 film holders.

    The 'T' refers to the depth the film sits in the holder -- this is important as the film must be on the same plane that the GG occupied when focusing.
