Press photographer gear in the 40's and 50's?
I posted this same question in another forum, and nobody really knew the answer. I was hoping it would get different responses here.
For a press photographer in the 40's and 50's shooting a 4x5 speed graphic, what would be the lenses that one would carry? Aside from the standard 127mm and 135mm would there be a wide angle? Maybe a 10" or 15"? Or did they just use one lens and do what they could? I always see documentaries and all I see are 135's and 127's. They look like they are traveling light?
