8x10 or 4x5⠀
This is how I choose what format to bring with me on a trip.⠀
4x5 I bring with me when I need a lighter camera, if I need to walk a lot or I’ve already got much to carry and 8x10 would not physically fit. I do not think it is necessarily faster than 8x10 to set up, but I do take faster photos with it because I can easily move it around after the set up. With 8x10 once you put it in place it usually stays there. I see 4x5 as a portable large format with which I can take more and faster photos. It was perfect for my @ilfordphoto Ortho Plus tests in Scotland, where I could easily take an exposure in minutes and could keep the camera all setup and attached to a tripod in the car. That was a lifesaver when a horde of midges was devouring you mercilessly on a spot. With 8x10 I wouldn’t stand a chance. I do however find 4x5 somewhat fiddly and it does lack a bit in this immersive large format experience that you get with a larger ground glass. ⠀
8x10 is my favourite format, it is really a treat every time you look at the world through it. If I could I’d bring it everywhere with me, but it is also a huge bundle to carry with large lenses and a rather substantial tripod. So the 8x10 for me is a camera for dedicated trips, where I know I will carry a big backpack and when I can take my sweet time.⠀
So this is how I choose my formats based on the weight of the equipment and the “turnaround time” for a shot. ⠀
Do you have any preferences yourself? How do you choose a camera to bring if you have several?⠀

The storms on the front range of colorado have been incredible the last few weeks, here’s a time lapse I shot from home of a stunning rainbow drifting across the landscape 🌈 / @nikonusa D850 w/300mm f4

A few months ago we walked the CWT. It was a bit like an extended day in the mountains. I checked our route and it worked out as 14000m of climbing over 400km. It took us 20 days. Quite a long day...

📚Фотоальбом «ХАБАРОВСК 2020» - традиционный подарок Дальневосточного
издательского центра «Приамурские ведомости» жителям и гостям ко дню основания города!👌🏻 Нравится?😎
Только сейчас осознаю, что фотоальбом о Хабаровске с такой красивой датой 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ показывает наш город в том числе и моими фотографиями😱😌
До последнего момента ничего не ждала, не представляла, не знала подробностей, просто поделилась фотоархивом. А теперь любуюсь книгой вместе с вами😍
Очень рада, что мои слегка сказочные фото соседствуют с креативными кардрами обычной и творческой жизни города @yavamnealesha Алеши Жвалика, с удачно пойманными добрыми моментами повседневности от Людмилы Краевой. Знаю что проекту помогало много других активных людей нашего города и это здорово!
И, конечно, отдельное спасибо Ольге Перелыгиной @olgaperoga за выбор моих фотографий из множества других от не менее хороших авторов, за огромную работу и трепетный подход к процессу. Я сама не понаслышке знаю, какая это трудоемкая работа😨
Праздник приближается и можно сделать такой подарок себе, друзьям, коллегам или гостям города. Альбом должен появиться в книжных магазинах Хабаровска, а пока по вопросам приобретения пишите @olgaperoga в Директ ! По секрету скажу так будет даже выгоднее😉
Hope you’re all having a great start to this weird ass summer. Enjoy the little things but take time to be disgusted by the words and actions of those who don’t value the feelings and lives of our fellow human beings.
I can’t wait to start shooting again!
Something different to describe our spring. Here you go. ♡
I really love this timelapse and it took almost daily trying for 3 weeks until I got it look the way I imagined and even with a little heart. I am still nervous to show it to you guys as I am afraid to loose the quality here on Instagram.
Hope you like it! 🙂
Ps. Still 91cm of snow here.

We’re delighted to share with you images of our final overseas shoot before the lockdown.
Here is the wonderful new #Anoha by @olsonkundig
ANOHA is a new space for children to discover, explore and play at the @juedischesmuseumberlin in #berlin
The story focuses around a giant timber Noah’s Ark housed inside an old flower market opposite the main museum. It’s exhibits contain over 150 charmingly designed animals constructed from recycled materials.
Hopefully the show will be enjoyed by children (of all ages) very soon.

quick lil’ intro for the new community members:
hi. right now all I care abt is how to push us into productive & quick conversation abt our civilization. how are we, humans, going to continue to move forward together when, bc of the decisions of our ancestors, we OPERATE AROUND EACH OTHER using a set of rules that protects only a “few”. I’ve spent the past three years trying to understand how I am and am not part of that “few”. It’s taken me deep into the creases of our history books, all the way to the bottom of scrolls produced by the Vatican in the 1400s, to our walk-in closets and apps that can modify photos to make us skinnier. It’s all connected and part of, what I like to call, ‘The Great American Pretending’. I’ve spent a lot of my life performing that Pretending—and I’m very good at it. I’m even better at spotting it in others, particularly white women who have had a similar life experience to me.
I wrote a book, Raising Our Hands (link in bio, drops June 23), abt how I tilted the prism of which I look at my life, my comfort, my convenience, and now, how I’m adjusting my ongoing role in the world. It’s based on years of research w/ white women from across the country. We explored the existential questions (what are you willing to fight for besides your loved ones?), the immediate next steps (what is holding us back from doing?) & what does 'liberty' mean.
I come at this work as a terrible speller (if you follow me you’ll see loads of typos, enjoy), I have two babies who’ve come through me and loads of others that I mother and love. I’m a partner, a daughter, a cousin, a friend that isn’t always easy to be around—I rebuild myself against them, but they still keep me around to play cards (I let them win is prob why), drink margaritas & my two-step to the Spice Girls is always entertaining.
I’m a student of our times & an explorer of the past. I know what is happening today is not working & I’m constantly searching for my right place to do something abt it. I’m a little bit scared, but willing to be a lot brave w/ you bc I know nobody else is coming. Thanks for being here.

Calculating risk is part of every backcountry adventure we undertake. The equation involves an honest assessment of the likelihood of risk, magnitude of consequences for ourselves and those who our actions implicate or endanger, and our ability to plan for and overcome them. Recreation in the time of of a global pandemic is no exception—it just adds new factors to consider when drawing up plans. The #RecreateResponsibly coalition has drawn up some helpful guidelines for the upcoming holiday weekend and beyond to help us all get out there safely. Tap the link in my profile for more. Have fun, stay safe.
Definitely my favorite beach in Sydney!
