We are monkeys with money and guns.”

Nice camera. Congratulations.
I'm building a 16x20 as well and it is almost finished (a little paint and velvet and it is ready).
Good luck with your pictures.
Wow. What lens are you using to cover a 16x20 piece of film?

Those are bulldog clips. I guess the photos were taken during a dry fit up before the bellows were permanently attached to the standards.
I'm curious. As it isn't in the build photos, did you attach it to the back of the lens or to the front like a typical filter? Also, where did you find a negative diopter lens of such a diameter?
A day without light is like ... a bad sync cord.
Thanks. I've ordered a couple of negative f.l. meniscus lenses to experiment.
Really interesting tumblr. The image with the binoculars and map is incredible. Thanks for sharing!
