I got the 4×5 Provia transparencies back from the lab! I’m pretty happy with the way they came out. My only issue really is that now that I see them up close, I realize I’m terrible at correcting perspective with the camera. Something I’m going to need to work on!
Sunday, my friend and I went to Joshua Tree National Park to photograph the Lunar Eclipse. Continuing with my current trend in exploring new avenues of photography, rather than take my big telephoto lenses and digital camera for close up lunar photos, I decided to take only my 4×5 rail camera for the night.
As I’ve been designing this site, I’ve been researching many different types of analog photography.
I started learning about photography almost a decade before the first consumer digital cameras became available. I worked my way up from 35mm to medium format, and eventually on to large format cameras. Using a view camera was always one of my favorite things, but other than a Speed Graphic I had for a few months, I’d never really owned and used one consistently.
