  1. Re: Looking for classic grand hotel tween Baltimore and VA

    In Baltimore, the Belvedere is about as grand as it gets.

    Unfortunately most of the classic hotels - including the aformentioned - in the region have been converted to apartments/condos, so if...

    11x14 camera

    My biggest complaint about 11x14 is the expense of film holders.

    What camera to buy if you only had $100

    You can buy four or five Holgas for $100. Who cares if they don't hold up? ; )

    Otherwise a Burke and James 4x5 press with a Zeiss Tessar can be had for under $100 usually. Great cameras.

    A good 8x10 film holder bag

    Mark,
    I use plain old white kitchen garbage bags to keep dust out. They don't last forever, but they're cheap and effective and are big enough to accomodate 11x14 holders.

    Supplies for Alt. Process Printing

    I got tired of breaking rods, so I use a Richeson 9010 for pt/pd as well. I do, however, use a hake brush for speading gums (and a real cheap ass synthetic to smooth it) and cyanotypes.

  37. After shooting 8x10 what did you switch to?

    Add a 5x7 back to your 8x10. It's much cheaper than going ULF and a mighty versatile format. (I bought an 11x14 after 8x10, but I still shoot about 40% 5x7 vs. 59% 8x10.)
