    My Grandfather had a panoramic image of the lake I grew up. It was over the couch at the lake house. I haven't seen that image in over 30 years, but I remember it as if I had last seen it yesterday. Then about 4 years ago View Camera did an article on panoramic cameras. Then about 3 years ago Richard Ritter announced he was going to start building ULF cameras. I was already shooting 8x10 and knowing that someday I might want to shoot a larger negative, I made sure the lenses I purchased would cover an 8x20 or larger negative. I eventually decided on a Ritter 7x17 camera.

    I truly enjoy printing the negatives on Azo. I do my proof and work prints on 2 sheets of 8x10 using a vacuum easel. This allows me to only use the 20x24 Azo when I am printing "keepers."

    The underlying truth is that ULF photography adds an element of direct creativity with light that is not so pronouncedly felt with other type of formats. And that element can easily be a very inspiring element in the photographing process. The huge screen somehow takes over the other technical parts of the camera and the visual process has a greater inner impact. So I feel it - a director of a light factory.

    So what's his reply - "Because I always have to carry all that stuff?"

    Why I started to use a 8x20 camera, I saw an exhibition with some 8x20 contact print, and I needed to use a 8x20 camera, when it arrived and I looked at the groundglass a new vision appear to my eyes and my mind, the second things is a funny gym carrying on the shoulder in the field helps to keep fit, and I needed to lose weight

    No, he doesn't have any interest in going with me when I photograph. I carry whatever I take with me.

    To him, if it isn't color, it isn't photography.

    Obviously because of the visual impact of a big contact print. Everybody wonders about the incredible amount of detail when seeing them. What they don't realise in the first time is that the tonality too helps to come the very same emotion about the picture.

If you feel the need, and can afford it, you can actually load up a film holder and fire off a shot; but that is totally unnecessary.
    Dave is spot on as always......but......I set up the 14X17 in front of the Tonopah post office and wait all day. 13 or 14 people came and went but I couldn't draw a crowd. I still feel all alone and unappreciated.

    BTW, that picture of Goldfarb in front of the viaduct with that camera. If I ever saw a terrorist photographing a public works project of importance, that's it!

    Now Diane, that is an example of the power of true love - I'd have to REALLY love someone deeply and profoundly to overlook that kind of attitude

    It's a half of truth, anyway.
