    I just meter on area interested in and go. What ever the shutter speed turns out to be, so be it. One thing to remember is evenyually you wil run into film not liaded correctly, film holder not seated right, ground glass holder not seated prooerly, inadvertent tilt/swing/to much rise/fall/shift, firget to close aperture after focusing, forget to set shutter speed, fstop, meter wrong, drop film holder, not level camera, forget to tighten ball head, forget to tighten focus knobs, etc. List goes on.

    I started out ok, got better, now I got worse because I know enough to be completely dangerous with a view camera. At some point I hope to get better again.

    Overall you're off to a good start.

    My first LF photo (other than pinholes) was this week and apparently I reticulated the film when I washed with hot water from the tap.

    So you're ahead of me at least.

    I'm setting the bar low to make everyone else look good.

    Thank you, Pepe, they are still my best after some months of testing.
    This makes me think what I look for in LF at the moment are 80% portraits and rest city landscapes.
    All the lenses I tried few of them I really like so I will start let some of them go, maybe I change the camera as well.
