    I wholeheartedly agree. It won't take you long to get used the waist level view. (Not like a view cam's upside-down-and-backward). In fact... it will actually make composition easier, IMHO. Don't be surprised if you start to view it as the "right way" rather than the reverse.

    Just don't try to use the WLF for action scenes!

    someone on here said a few weeks back that they were having a tough time until they thought about "dragging the subject into the frame" as opposed to moving the frame to the subject. i tried thinking about it like that and it's been easier. i haven't done a TON of WLF shooting, but i've done a fair amount on my TLRs and most recently a few rolls with my F and 105/2.5 with the WLF

    Thanks for all the tips Sounds like more practice is in order. I use a lot of thirds in my images ( or at least tend to) which may explain why I think the images are weird as my subject may be in the right third whereas I wanted them in the left third. However it seems to work out in the end somehow. Maybe I'm just over thinking it by trying to compose normally with my eyes then trying to redo it reversed in the wlf.

    Action may be what I have to shoot! Doh! Guess a lot more practice is in order
