Hoping to get some real-world advice here.
I shoot people using a P45 on a Mamiya RZ, and have used a Deardorff in the past.
Am about to spring for a 4x10 camera for a upcoming project.
This involves using the panoramic sweep to place people/models strategically, against a natural setting, and most importantly, placing them at varying depths, that is, some closer to foreground than others.
This would involve overpowering the ambient light with strobes focused on each person - likely as separate exposures on the same sheet.
Any thoughts on view camera vs. say a 6x17 rollfilm camera?
I like the slowing-down work process + the ground glass preview + superlarge prints. I'm also assuming, from my Dorff days, that syncing with E;inchrom strobes won't be an issue. I currently have several 4x5 lenses with modern shutters - but not sure if they'll cover 4x10. I do have that monster Kodak Ektar w/c should cover, and I've synced that up before..
Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts o the workflow before I pull the trigger...
thanks in advance,
