    The Dark Side is calling me

    Today is the first day of Photo 2 class at CPCC (my local community college), and I'm excited about this because I will be using the school's brand-new Toyo 8x10 field camera with 240mm and 360mm lenses. Last semester I took Photo 1 for the darkroom access, and had an opportunity to use a Horseman 4x5 monorail with Schneider lenses, which allowed me to produce some amazing negatives. I now find myself in an odd position: I have no 35mm film and think of my RB67 as a small camera! I am itching to get my hands on this 8x10. Three hours to go!!!

    Agree, no point in resisting. 8x10 can be a pain, but there's nothing quite like an 8x10 contact print. It's so exciting just holding an 8x10 negative.

    C-41 negatives are pretty dang awesome, too! LF can be a pain to shoot, but so worth it, and field/press cameras make it relatively easy.

    I actually had a similar realization earlier today. I also have an RB67, and I started doing a bit of 4x5 in the fall. Right now I'm taking an intensive cyanotype and platinum/palladium class. We're using medium format, 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10, and suddenly I think of the RB's negatives as tiny. There's a reason that what we now know of as medium format used to be called miniature.
