Polaroid

Results of the Maiden Voyage:

Today I learned that the further out the bellows are extended, the closer I can get to my subject.  Bellows are not zoom.  They are macro.  Also, I learned my tripod (or tripod head) is not meant to mount a 4X5 Field camera to.  Consequently, I need to be much more careful about framing my subject.  Because when I frame with the bellows fully extended and then change from the focus back to the polaroid back, the entire camera sags down from physical weight.  Also, there is no mobile app that will give proper exposure readings with bellows compensation.  So, proper exposure is pretty much a guess based on personal experience.  This is exacerbated by the fact that there are no markers for Aperture on the lens, with my only certainty being that the max aperture is f/4.  Joelle did well for this though, and I am grateful she stopped over to the mall for my lunch break in order to allow me to photograph her.  :)
