I can recall the first photograph I ever took with my Toyo45a.To say I was nervous about it was an understatement- the first image I took went well except I forgot to close down the lens after focusing, so this photo is from the other side of the dark slide.
Abandoned farmhouse and tank , Kerrs Creek near Orange NSW
Incident Light reading with Sekonic L308s meter 1/30th F32 using ilford FP4 film rated at 80 ASA and developed in Rodinal 1:50 (normal development).Rather than raise the front board , I tilted the camera up , then made both the front and rear board parrallel to the ground and square.
