I must say working with a large format camera was quite challenging , but now that I am a total expert with it , all that happens is incredible art is created at the touch of the shutter.
As a printmaker , I must say how incredibly easy and boring exposing film is , in fact probably the most easy part of the whole process.
I hear all these large format knobs talking about their lenses , and gear but really all you need is a pinhole and large sheet of film and then give it to a good printer to make the magic happen.
Steve the matted prints will be in your hands next week.
I am really looking forward to coming to this event, and very happy to find out that Monty probably will not be able to make it.
Got the Jpegs today, really look interesting, many thanks for all your efforts, have we converted you to a dark cloth snob?
Real Photographs are Born Wet !
you know that wisenhiemer with the 20x24.
I don't require the dark cloth , I just guess focus, composition and exposure.
all the real talent is in the darkroom.
I am very much looking forward to meeting everyone at this event. It'll even be good to see Bob again!

Time to give up on the wet plate stuff, I think the ether is finally getting to you!
Let me ask you something. If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?
