    Inside a nuclear reactor facility "hot zone". It's been done. Remote servo-style view camera controls, of course, and not using film per se for the capture.

    I've always thought it was really difficult to make landscapes get up and dance. What in a landscape can provoke an emotional response? This is really hard for me to figure out and after decades and thousands of frames shot I have rarely been successful.

    Not the most difficult, I suppose, just a lot of work. Just got back from a two night backpack with the 5x7. I made the mistake of weighing all the photo components before I left...just shy of 30 pounds. (9 film holders, one lens, Eastman View No.2, old Gitzo pod, spot meter, etc). Exposed all 5 holders of TMax400...did not get to the 4 holders of FP4. First half of the last day was in the rain. A bit strange carrying a ~55 pound pack back up the mountain to the van. I did manage to eat just about all 6 pounds of food, so I did not have to carry that weight back up!
