Getting Acquainted with 4 x 5

Today I stopped by the Laguardia Community college ahead of my planned still life project this week to learn and get more acquainted with the View Camera and all of it's attributes and functions

I started by checking the ground glass and seeing how easily it turns from landscape to portrait orientation.

Wondered why I couldn't see anything in the focusing screen & it was because the lens was closed, also made sure the camera was zeroed before testing adjustments.

First adjustment was lowering the front standard.

Then tilted the rear standard both up and down.

and finalized testing with a turn of the front and rear standard.
