    Hello fellow photographers,

    I have been shooting medium format for more than 2 years now and i would like to get into Large format photography. I have no idea about anything in the market, on what to buy how to use a view camera. I politely ask you guys for any suggestion on books? that will educate me thoroughly on LF photography.

    Thanks a lot

    There are a number of books out there. A popular one (and the one I have) is "Using the View Camera" by Steve Simmons. I can't compare it to the others, but I think the book is well done and easy to read.

    Look at the web site largeformatphotography.info - it contains on the first page several articles that will answer a lot of questions.
