Here is the Arca set up photographing an old building in the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.

Something about the quality of the Stockyards that really wants to be photographed with a view camera.

Sure you can make more images snapping away with your DSLR but going slow and contemplating is good. Some numbers. I was here on Saturday with DSLR and took 250 images. I went back Sunday with the Arca and took 7. That's right-seven.

I have walked past this particular building without giving it much thought. Today it was my subject. I spent over two hours with this one building and made seven different images.

It is just a whole different way of working.
