I’m basically learning how to use the 8×10 whilst I’m doing so. I’ve become at ease with the camera as it’s size and weight no longer daunt me, but I’m still not very confident in making use of all the monorail’s movements.
I’m not really thinking it through when I’m standing in front of a building. I should be, but I’m too rushed and not deliberative enough. I’m just not thinking large format monorail when I’m taking the photo. And I’m getting the longish exposures wrong–I’m overexposing because I’m unsure what corrections to make for reciprocity failure.
