    Re: Importance of back movements

    Here's a digital capture of a shot I did today with my 4x5, My Chamonix has asymmetrical tilts allowed with the rear standard. Your comments appreciated.

    Re: Importance of back movements

    If the axis line doesn't fall on the far distant point I want to focus on, I first use rise/fall on the front to line up the axis line where I want to do the main distance focus. Then I shift the...

    Re: Importance of back movements

    Thanks that makes sense. I usually don't have buildings in my landscape pictures but just had one the day before and couldn't figure out what to do. So I never got the lines plumb. I've got to...

    Re: Importance of back movements

    So what's the best way to make the walls of buildings plumb (vertical)? I also have a asymmetric tilt using the back standard. How would that work with this issue?

    Re: Importance of back movements

    My Chamonix 45H-1 has asymmetrical tilt but only when you use the back standard. That makes tilting "easier" but it does add distortion but not noticeable on landscape pictures.

    Re: Reversal vs negative

    I agree. Trying to saturate a portrait film like Portra made to complement flesh tones properly, will just distort the colors. Likewise, using Velvia or even Ektar when shooting people is hard to...

  13. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    Some hand-held GPS's as the Garmin I linked to earlier have 24K topo maps loaded which are very helpful. Another way to handle it that I used to do, is use a computerized 24K program where you can...
  14. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    GPS's show location only not direction you're facing if you're not moving. That's where magnetic compasses come in. If you get a Garmin hand-held GPS, get one with built in 3-axis compass. Just...
  15. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    Lithium batteries, more expensive, but they last about 6x longer than regular bats. Also, they work well in cold weather and don't fade from the cold.

  16. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    My view is it would be OK to set one up where you're camping then take it when you leave. For longer term, that would be OK for me. But you should leave your name and phone number waterproof tag on...

    Re: Reversal vs negative

    There's no reason Velvia 50 can't have pastels and less impressionable saturation since you're controlling the final after the scan. While this film "pops", you can tone down the results or amplify...

    More to the point of a photography forum, would trail cameras tied to trees to photograph passing animals be considered trash by others?

    That's my point. Color rendition to match the original or other similar pictures are not important. The photographer should adjust based on their aesthetic interpretations, not what some...

  26. Re: LF hikers, do you remove plastic tree ribbons?

    Use the bread crumb trailing feature if you have it in your GPS. That will take you back the same way you came in. Of course, you don't necessarily want to re-track the same trail as it could take...

  28. Re: Precision and Accuracy in LF Photography: How much is enough?

    If modern large format lenses were made with accurate shutters, old lenses would drop to $50 each or less. I think a lot of people would switch to the new design that are accurate, consistent, and...

    What if someone put up a ribbon to help them find their way back to civilization? Now you've done it and remove it and they're probably still wondering around lost and getting real hungry.

    But the problem with large format equipment, especially old lenses, is that they are old and often not accurate or consistent. That makes life difficult. It often becomes a distraction and new,...
