A Nice Intro to 8×10

I have seen a renewed interest in the largest image sizes lately (4×5, 5×7, and 8×10). I love to shoot my 8×10 and scan the neg on my flatbed… 1 to 1. Makes a big file that prints like a dream at 8×10 to 16×20 (after Photoshopping the hell out of it). Getting a scan at the lab renders a much superior neg for printing a more realistic image. This is a good intro piece, and we will have more.

Paul Butzi Photography: “One if the biggest hurdles to getting started in large format photography is that often people contemplating buying their first view camera have no idea of how the thing is actually used in practice, and thus have very little idea of what format they’ll like, how much of some movement is enough, how much bellows draw is needed, and so on.”
