Today I went out into the field to orientate myself with the 4x5 camera. The "love affair" has begun. It is an amazing camera with some elements that take some getting used to. Viewing the image upside down for one. This definitely forces you to take your time and really double check to make sure you are capturing what you want to capture. The sheer size of the camera is another "new" to me. Luckily, this trip into the field came with a nearby parking ramp. All in all, my first experience went well and I look forward to continuing this relationship.
