Panoramas

 

       I really enjoy making panorama photographs, that is a photograph in which one dimension is at least twice as long as the other dimension of the photograph.  My favorite format for panorama is 6x17, but I also make 6x12, and 4x10.  When I had the 8x10 Bomm camera custom built (Click here to read the article), I had a 5x7 back built to enable me to use a 6x17 Da Yi back.  My thought was that the Bomm was the perfect camera for the format and had the movements I would need to create precise and sharply focused images.

       I also built a 6x17 camera from a kit (Click here to read about Two Fourths build) hoping to have an alternative to using the Bomm for 6x17.  My thought was the Two Fourths 6x17 has no movements,  weighs less that 1/4 of what the Bomm weighs, and has no bellows to blow in the wind.
