What a beast - That was the first comment from my friend who helped me setup my 20x24" camera. And it is. It looks like a beast, it handles like a beast, but I love it like only a parent can love their own kids. We wanted to test the camera, but it has no bellows yet and I dont have a lens that will cover the 20x24" format. Well we made a "bellow" with 4 rods, a black plastic sheath and some meters of fabrick made for keeping light out. After checking that it was light tight
A photographer that I have worked with has dropped analog completely. I know that this is not news in any way, since everyone is going digital. Most of the photographers I know only have their analog cameras stading somewhere as a museum piece. What was special about this photographer was that he insisted on shooting analog for his clients.

There is always the solution to sell it and use the money to fund the last 3 years of medical school
Usually I have a lot of good projects that I could use this film for, but none come to mind at the moment.
Yesterday I had the oppertunity to work with a photografer, taking portraits. We shoot all the portraits on 8x10" polaroid and did transfers to cotton with them. It is always fun to work with Polaroids, but as we all know it will soon be over.
