    [QUOTE=StoneNYC;1475049]When you guys say the converging lines are messed up do you mean the bulge in the corner of the building?


    ~Stone

    Converging lines are lines that are parallel in the subject, but converge towards a point in the image. In this example, they converge towards a point far outside the top of the frame. This can be corrected by having the back of the camera perfectly vertical and adjusting the framing by sliding the lens upwards. You will probably run out of the coverage with that lens, but this can be partly corrected in printing. The apparent bulge is typical for barrel distortion in a lens, which doesn't sound likely with that 90mm.

    Ah, this is what I love about the community here at APUG

    Thank you all for the kind words and suggestions! I am going out again Saturday and will play with the limited movements I have in my camera!

    Very nice shot keep up the good work. Remember that you will have more failures in the beginning, but don't lose faith.

    My only suggestion is that if you want to learn how to use your new view camera that you stick with the 203 Ektar as it has a much larger image circle than the 90 Anglon.

    Image circle coverage is not usually a problem with a Speed Graphic.

    Ha-ha! You've done it now Axel! From now on you'll spend most of your time fiddling with the movements with your head buried under the darkcloth. It addictive. Welcome to the club!

    ps. Be prepared for a lot of questions from curious members of the public.

    pps. Very nice result for a first effort. Well done.

    Thanks Jim,

    I think I understand, really can't wait to get my LF so I can practice all this, a shame I don't have the money yet, that 127mm(or 137 I forget off hand) Shneider Lens sitting in a box is just taunting me...
