I've made 2 exposures with the giant Eastman 11X14 camera so far. This one really pleased me. No biggy you say? Try focusing a 22" Voigtlander Petzval on a squirmy 15 month old :o He started to get fussy so Grandpa handed him a vintage Lionel Shell tank car. (I think it adds wonderfully to the vintage look I wanted) No time to think. Plus all that thick carpet makes the very top heavy camera impossible to move around. For lighting I simply opened the front door and set a stool in the immediate entry. I only have a single aperture stop besides wide open. F9. I had mounted a Packard shutter inside so before the whole idea went to pieces I pulled the darkslide and Ka-Plunk-a. I'm glad I did. Gosh a big studio with wood floors and lights would be nice!
