8x10 beginner problems needing help here!
so today my grover 8x10 rolled in and i decided to give it a test run and boy is that large ground glass impressive- been shooting 4x5 for a while now so i know my way around largeformat-
ok to the problems-
I decided to shoot paper so loaded up and the lens i have is the commercial ektar 12 inch- which has a bipole so i made a cable for flash and looked through it and tripped the shutter- i could see that it was tripping the flash at a same time as the shutter but all my paper just came out blank-
it paper emulsion insensitive to electronic flash??
or is it my bipole x-sync make shift that's faulty?
would be glad to get any responses as it can be frustrating...ah
