    Re: Do your trees FRIGHTEN anyone?

    Wow... Jim. I agree with your assessment of that tree! It looks like some sort of brutish troll or something! Definitely fits in with the eerie theme of this thread!

    Re: Images of Photographers 1860-1900

    I really think this sort of thing is fascinating. Makes me wonder just how hard it'd be to track down a functional example of one of those cameras. That'd be awesome.

    Re: Negative Carriers For Hansa Enlarger?

    Here are some shots of the enlarger. Sorry for the relatively low quality. My digital camera isn't the greatest in the world.

    Negative Carriers For Hansa Enlarger?

    I came across a NICE deal on a perfectly functional Hansa enlarger. It looks to be a pretty old model, especially since the plug is only 2 prong with no grounding wire. It came with a 35mm negative...
  9. Re: Schneider Kreuznach Symmar-S 135mm f/5.6... Good for 4x5 Newbie?

    Thanks! I doubt I'll be needing any truly excessive movements, as my main interest is landscape photography. Architecture and tabletop work are both very uninteresting to me, so I think I should be...

    Re: Complete Newbie to LF Photography

    Thanks! Even though I said I was getting the bender, I was outbid on it with about 15 seconds to go! Frustrating, but a blessing in disguise as well! I found an EXCELLENT 'buy it now' deal on a 4x5...
