    I actually really like the ortho. Flattering it is not but it is a really cool look.

    So stupid to put it down. It’s just pandering to the idea that we have to be “safe” at all times.

    Re: Giving up the view camera---am I nuts?

    In addition to the way large format forces you to work it also has a significant effect on people in front of your lens. Anybody who has shot in any fairly crowded area can tell you that. Apparently...

    Re: Effective Drypacks

    I have used the pelican brand ones that come in a flat can. They have worked well and I like that it gives you a color patch to tell when it is recharged (in a warm oven).

  18. Re: pros/cons of two different lenses at the same focal length?

    Re: Scanning a negative as a document

    Bummer, I thought that would work better. Ferrotypes are always pretty high contrast but they're workable. I wonder if the silver in film emulsion is too reflective or not reflective enough?
  21. Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or similar?

    Trouble with that would be dust, anyway. Filters in the holder project any dust from the filter sharply onto the film. You already have 6 surfaces per image (3 sheets, front and back) to try and keep...

    Re: Scanning a negative as a document

    You could probably get something interesting, if very different to a transmitted light scan, by scanning with something matte black behind the negative to treat it like an ambrotype or tintype. Might...
  23. Re: Has anyone here done three-color photography on B/W with a Speed Graphic or simil

    Perhaps grafmatics would help you get the needed exposures in somewhat shorter time with less manipulation of the camera. They even hold sheets in a multiple of three.

  31. Re: Toyo 5x7 deluxe monorail bellows and lens question

    I like to be able to focus a normal lens at 1:1. In reality the vast majority of what I do would be fine with maybe 160% of the bellows for a normal lens at infinity.

    That’s a good illustration, Vaughn. It shows clearly that the “half slide” isn’t really half because you want to mask off a bit extra so there a touch of space between frames.
