Household Object #1

Calumet Cambo View Camera Schneinder-Kreuznach Symmar 210mm f5.6 ISO 100 Arista.EDU Ultra 4x5 Sheet Film Adox Adonal 1:50 - Large Format Photography is about the process. The View Camera is still a very new tool in my camera toolbox. Right now it is about learning the mechanics and forming my work flow, then habituating both. They have to become second nature before they get out of my way and my focus becomes the image. This can be a long process, shoot, access, correct and repeat. Keep what works, rethink what does not. So many steps, some many opportunities for error, patience is not a virtue with large format photography, it is a requirement. Patience is the rule, do not rush, think, work through the process. Enjoy the journey.
