This is a rather silly question, especially since I've been making a living from photography for over ten years, but...
How the heck do you compose and focus a view camera at night, or when photographing in dark conditions? I was out today and the contrast of the scene was extremely low and I could not view the image on the ground glass. I got my girlfriend to walk into the foreground and shine a torch on something so I could at least focus on that point and make an informed guess about the overall composition. Now, I know I was using a dark lens (a 90mm f/8 SA) but the situation wasn't much better with my 150mm f5.6. Honestly, I'm so used to using a rangefinder (Mamiya 7II) and being able to focus on almost anything that I've forgotten what it's like using a ground glass / SLR.
Can anyone give me any pointers that might aid in quick and easy setup etc?
Thanks for your help,
