    New Mexico during Christmas

    We are thinking about a road trip from southern California to New Mexico during Christmas for about a week. Any tips and recommendations for spots to shoot?

    Thanks.
  3. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    You actually can use single element of Cooke convertible lens for 11x14 head and shoulder. I have tried the rear element for some head shots. Not bad at all.
  4. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.

    I have just read somewhere that a sheet of undeveloped but fixed 8x10 film could be used as a spacer placed directly on the scanner glass and then the 8x10 negative to be placed shining side down....
  5. Re: Epson V850 work-around for scanning 5x7 negatives.

    Is it possible to lay 5x7 negatives on the scanner like prints and simply scan them? I was told to use 24-bit-color and at 300 dpi. I just want to digitize all my 45, 57, WP and 810 and larger...
  6. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    Jim,

    What lens did you use for your brother's 11x14 head shot? I still remember that picture.
  7. Re: Need Advice on 16x20 cameras and film from owners/users

    I use my Chamonix 16x20 and have a 14x17 back so I can shoot both formats. I can handle it myself as long as the walk is not over a mile. :)
  8. Re: Head and Shoulder Portrait Lens for 11x14 Camera

    You probably need a 24 inch lens. 19 inch lens is good for half or whole body.

    Tri,

    I will take your generous offer and these are really glowing images of trees. I think you should make a slight change of your first name to Tree. :)

  16. Re: Very neat artice by the New Yorker on Thomas Joshua Cooper

    I didn't state it clearly enough: he would travel many days or weeks to a location and make a single exposure. Just one exposure.

    What puzzled me is that he took only one picture at one place which led me to think the whole expedition experience was more important than the ultimate image which most other serious photographers...
