I do whatever my Rice Krispies tell me to do.







Actually, I started into LF because MF was too limiting. I had problems with depth of field and perspective, and I wanted to solve that. The price of a shift-tilt lens was the same as for a LF camera. So I decided that the wisest thing to do was go with a LF camera. I bought a Graflex Super Graphic, and I used that basic system without expanding it for years.

If you want to get into LF cheaply, you can do it. But be warned, it's something that you have to work at to get good results. And that will take time and effort. So what do you do? DO IT NOW! DON'T DELAY! Time is not limited, but your life is limited. Go for it, and dive in! If you enjoy film, you will enjoy LF. Ask for someone to send you what they think is a scrap negative. Look at it under a loupe. See all the detail! It was some kind of special when I realized that my 135mm Optar lens showed bicycle spokes two blocks away. I can live with results like that, no problem.
