    8x10 on a Bicycle?

    A short 2-minute film on local photography on a bicycle.



    The "lightweight" setup is discussed in another video (link).

    Now that I think about it, this is the real 100% analog workflow! Haha

    That's great. I've thought about buying a trailer for my back to haul my 8x10 around for photo. Certainly allows you to get some place a lot easier

    Check out the 7x17 work of Lois Connor in China. She photographed and traveled around the cities on a bicycle. Not all the time, but more than enough to give a ton of experience.

    Will do, just happen to have a 7x17 too. Actually she sounds familiar.

    I've been trying to come up with some sort of trailer that would let me pull my portable wet plate lab behind my bike for 8x10. My small city has a great paved bike trail that follows the river. Once it quits snowing and warms up I was hoping to go out on it.

    Having done long distance cycling in my youth on a touring bike, there are of course ways of carrying a full 8x10 kit on a bike without putting the weight on your back. But if you're essentially backpacking like he is and intermittently using a bicycle for short distances, the above makes sense.
