    CAREFUL!!!

    Does the sun pass through that view?
    A well focused image of the sun can start a fire.

    i read last year of a photographer whose lens was open, and while he
    was preparing his photo stuffs, the sun focused through his lens onto his bellows and
    they started to burn ...
    i think i have the story right ...
    wish i could remember who it happened to ...

    It actually happened to me with the 20x24 on an outdoor shoot with Wegman up in Maine in the '90s. The fresnel on the ground glass focused the sun on the bellows and burned a neat hole....a little black tape and we were good to go-lesson learned "keep the viewing door on the 20x24 closed when not in use."

    Best,

    There was the photographer who was in a somewhat recent View Camera or Camera Arts who does hours long daylight exposures. I saw one of his negatives at Photo LA, the sun had burned right through it. Can't say much for the "art", but it was interesting.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Happened to alot of people I guess, enough to be mentioned in numerous books...some (fSU?) cameras have metal focal plane shutters that someone usually declares immune to the solar burning 'problem'.
