    Large Formatters in Ireland on APUG

    I wonder if there are many APUGgers who do LF stuff in Ireland. I've spent a few lonely but nonetheless meditative days last week in Wicklow Mountains with my kit and I kind of thought it might be fun to have another go at Scheimpflug and calculating minimum f-stops for a slanted plane of depth of focus and all that stuff that really makes more sense when a few heads get together... With the nice weather coming this summer (it must) I think it could be nice to meet up.

    I do a little bit of 5x4 but mostly indoors since my bellows are leaky [thanks to a lying Ebay seller] and i always use Polaroid Type 55 on it.

    But that said I'd be on for meeting up sometime....

    A lying eBay seller no less, now there’s a novelty. :o

    I thought gaffer tape was invented with leaky bellows in mind.

    Yea loopey photographer living in Kilburn (not British), wanted me to claim on insurance for leeky bellows 'damged in transit' Then threatened me when I left negative feedback. Screwing me is one thing, threatening me is another. I suggested I call over to his studio [aint google handy] and have a little chat

    Anyway I do have some tape on it, but when I fold back the bellows it sortof comes unstuck unfortunatly.

    Nice tale.

    I can imagine that if one winds gaffer tape around one's bellows they quickly cease to be bellows.

    Rafal,

    I don't shoot LF (MF and 35mm) but if you are feeling lonely I'm sure we could organise a Wicklow APUGers outing, don't think we'd have much trouble convincing Síle to come along.

    I want to take the photograph I think I'm taking

    I've been trying 4X5 recently and taken maybe 20 pictures, nothing yet to write home about but a day in the mountains sounds good once the rain isn't coming down sideways
