    Fantastic day for an auto show, so I spent about 2 hours burning up some film in the Shen Hao.

    Shen%20Hao%20Auto%20Show%201.

    Since the cars are all parked side-by-side, taking a shot of the entire car would merely be a snapshot from a terrible angle and have the busiest backgrounds imaginable. So I concentrated on details.

    One car had a drive-in motif, replete with the window tray and speaker. I took this shot under the focus cloth with my cell phone to show you what it looks like 'under the cloth' to shoot large format.

    First batch of 6 negs have been souped.

    They look gorgeous! Waiting for the hardware to dry to soup up the next batch, so more to come! Stay tuned.

    I shot 4x5 and 6x6 almost exclusively for years. This makes me want to get my large format kit together again. Nice work.
