Help for a LF novice to get going w/o stumbling so much. General tips and tricks that I can learn and file away until I need to use it. How to pack and carry the LF gear. I'm having trouble packing for an outing.
Landscape to start off with, then I will see what else I want to shoot.
Starting off w B&W; Ilford FP4 and Delta 100, will develop in HC-110 or Ilford in a Unidrum or Nikor 4x5 tank. Color film is TBD. Prob Velvia 50 for landscape but open to discussion.
Have not figured out what to do with the 4x5 negatives. My darkroom is just starting construction. 35mm and MF I can print in a makeshift bathroom darkroom only because the enlarger is small enough to assemble/disassemble/store. Once the darkroom is built I can set up the 4x5 enlarger. Scanning and digital printing is an option.
4x5 Toyo monorail with 90 and 150mm lens.
Gary Located mid SF peninsula Total newby to LF. I am still assembling my kit and have yet to shoot my first sheet of 4x5 film.
