    Nice sail on that camera.

    Yes I have picked up a camera and walked away from a photo, sometimes after few minutes sometimes after an hour or two. Part of it is I know I can come back and try again sometimes with much better results. When I get the bigger cameras out I know what I am after and going back a few times is part of the adventure of getting that prized photo from that spot.

    Box = custom for the Korona 12x20. Box = heavy. Box = not very portable. Box = a new solution is needed. Box + a little water on the mudflat = I get to invent a backpack for the shot.

    EDIT: Jim: I looked for the slideshow on your site...I can't seem to find one. But I love looking at the wonderful images from your various cameras/lenses.

    Richard: You are the man. Your camera solves the very problem I'm fighting. Until the 'loan' of this camera ends, I'm tempted...but just tempted to call and order one. When the 'loan' ends you can be sure I'll call.

    I will have a 12x20 one of these days, but for now it's just 8x10. The first week I had the camera, I drove 2,000 miles and made 2 negatives. I think if I went a good location in Utah, that I'd take as many shots as I could even if there were hurricane winds!

    Michael,

    There are days when I travel with the 8x20 in the Jeep with me and don't make an exposure all day. But generally once the camera is out and set up on the tripod, I make an exposure.

    On really windy days I like to stay home, I find I get less stressed that way. The only time I will set up on a windy day is if I'm traveling in an area I'm not likely to be back to. Then I make the exposure, but the words that get spoken are not all that nice.

    What words are those? I've worn out all of my choice ones.

    When I set up the camera and am ready to make an exposure, I have to ask myself, "Am I sure...at least $25 dollars and 2 hours in the darkroom sure...that this will be an image I want to look at again?".

    I couldn't have said yes to that question yesterday...and am debating about going out again today.

    This is a location that most people will never visit in their lifetime...even those who are out on the lake regularly. I get to this location on a frequent enough basis that I know when the time is right I'll get a keeper.

    I've been in the same situation. my only problem is explaining to my wife, why after an entire day out "taking Photos" i didn't take a single "picture". Yah i think that is the most difficult part. I'm sure on those days she thinks i'm just out drinking. (some days I'd rather be)

    Drug the camera across 1/2 mile of mudflat, set it up, storm coming in, nice light, etc... TOO MUCH WIND.

    Waited about 2 hours, never died down enough to make me feel good about making an exposure. Very frustrated.

    You should have made the exposure. With the wind and a slow exposure speed you have out of the box Pictorialism.
