    I like the big ground glass, kind of like a canvas...and the tonality and detail of a contact print. They have a 'tactile' quality about them. Plus it's challenging and fun at the same time.

    A lot of people stop and talk to me. Most of the time, they ask "Is that a Hasselblad? Will it take color pictures?" Then, the pixel gizmo comes out of the pocket and they ask "Why don't you use on of these? Its a lot smaller!"

    I have a lot of people who stop and talk to me too. Sometimes the digital question comes up, most of the time though, it doesn't. Sometimes I get asked what I do with my pictures and I am to the point where I want to give a better answer than to say I do nothing with them. I just haven't figured out what to do with them. I shoot for myself or for my own reasons.

    Jorge, who many should remember, tried to persuade me to move to ULF, and if I had it would have been to use a Banquet camera 7x17 or a similar format.

    What stopped me was a realisation, I'd already gone 10x8 and had planned to contact print but one look at my negatives wanted to enlarge, so found an enlarger. Will I change, will Pigs fly but I'll always want to enlarge

    Practicalities stopped me in my tracks, I never "Contact Print" and so instead I first bought a 6x17 (cm) camera because it's portable, can be used hand-held.

    That doesn't rule out buying and using a ULF camera, but only if I find a good camera with sufficient dark-slides at a reasonable price.

    I don`t have a ULF Camera, but I do have an 8x10 and I am interested in the AZO type paper mentioned in the link for contact prints. Any more information on this product?

    I don't have an ULF camera either. Just a mechanical device that puts my 450C Fujinon at the distance for infinity from a gg glass frame that takes a film holder. The rest is coupled with a black plastic bag attached to both "standards" with its own frame. The whole thing is in my attic and I take pictures of a mountain range with dramatic clouds, if present. 12x20 format. A kind of a photographic observatory where the telescope is replaced with a photographic lens. My way of the ULF photography.

    So I can pull muscles trying to get it out of my truck.
    No! So I have the biggest Mother F camera around.
    No! because when I look at the images on the walls in my operatories they looks so good and knowing they are contact prints makes me want to go out and make more.

    Because I photograph Ultra Large landscapes.

    Sometimes a bigger sheet of film is the only feasible way to fit it all in. I know that theoretically there should be no big difference between using a 65mm lens on 4x5" or a 210mm lens on 12x16", but yet...

    I first shot 8x10 and printed on Azo. I loved the contact printing process. Especially on Azo. One day a got a stick up my butt to go larger so I decided to go to 8x20. Didn't have the $$$$$$ for it so I built my own camera and tripod. It went so well I decided to build an 11x14. I love both of these "Beasts". The contact prints have a special look to them that I can't get from my enlargements. An 11x14 Azo print is something to see! I just wish I had been smart enough to get a stockpile of the 20x24 when it was available. Hopefully Michal Smith will have the Lodima Fine Art paper out soon. Nothing easier than printing on a silver chloride paper. I hope that one day I'll be printing 11x14 and 8x20 prints in Carbon.
