A contact print I made from a 8x10 X-Ray film negative shot with the 1918 Eastman View No 2 8x10 large format wooden view camera. Still getting used to the looks I can achieve on the larger format as compared to the 4x5 and 5x7 I'm used to. There are certainly more limitations in some ways but also more creative opportunities to be explored and exploited. The learning fun continues.
