Had the chance to try out my new homemade 8x10 field camera today. Please ignore the lousy shot and help me understand if this shot is a fluke reflection or am I really blind and can't see that part of my camera is in the picture I honestly don't think I could have missed such a blatant error or did I?
I'm rather new at this and don't know if this is to be expected sometimes. The lens used was a 210 g claron and I had a large amount of back rise applied. Did I really miss this on the ground glass or is it some sort of reflection? It is translucent and makes me think it is a reflection, if not, can I avoid it?
Again, please don't hurt my ego by acknowledging what a poor shot it was
Any advice is appreciated!
