So after being called out, justly, by @mackle, I tried to put forth a bit more effort today. @letranter and I took a bit of time to popped around town for a couple of shots for him and one of me with what has been keeping me busy (my last-minute, totally bo-bo theme).

To be fair this is me with my 4x5 whereas yesterday I was shooting 8x10 (still to be developed). In the background you'll see my city of Birmingham.

@matwiseman trying to come up with an acronym for pro that says im poor, but paying bills. here's where a better vocabulary would come in handy
@ulaocealleigh sounds like you're just looking for an excuse to going snowboarding!
@mimsattack sadly i don't OWN one as such, but have access to my friend jason's as i desire it. it literally sits in his studio looking cool. It's a Cambo, but I don't know the model. yesterday was the first of me shooting 8x10 and man it was awesome and intimidating. i'm pricing older cameras out on ebay. I may end up taking jason's out on permanent loan, but of course i haven't even broached that as an idea. he Does enjoy it looking awesome. i'd have a great excuse to made a travel box for it though!

I;ve had a Kodak 2d 8x10 for about 10 years. It's terrible if you compare it to a new Arca Swi$$ or something, but does just fine by me. Got it for 200 bucks, so how can you complain. Deals are out there unless you find yourself looking only at the high end stuff. One cool thing to look out for if you like experimentation: a universal lens iris. They made these 100 years ago to hold barrel lenses.. basically it's a giant aperture in a lens board that you tighten down around the barrel of any lens to hold it in the lensboard. Great item if you have a bunch of weird lenses and don't want to make boards for each one.

Shotgun Willie says:
8x10 just wasn't for me. don't know. the 11x14 i shot once was pretty awesome too. maybe i'll build a 16x20 camera for the final Photo History shot....probably not though.

Nailed it.

NOW, next challenge - Keep Doing This. You're such a badass photographer I will not allow anything less than a small effort. No more iSight photos.. you have proven you are way too good for that.
