    I'm just getting into Shore's work, and wondered if anyone had come accross what lenses (length, primarily) he used in Uncommon Places. Thanks,

    I know he used a Deardorff camera, but I don't know what lenses he used. I just emailed him and asked, so we will see if he answers.

    Shore replied as such:

    95% of the 8x10 work was done with a 305mm lens. A G-Claron lens.

    For the other 5% of the time, perhaps he uses a shorter lens.
    In American Beauty; The work of Stephen Shore based on the bellows extension, it looks like he was using 210mm or 240mm on the outing where they filmed him. You can find it on Youtube.
