Speed Graphic

Good morning and Happy New Year!

I took this image yesterday close to home. I was shooting with a Miniature Speed Graphic, a vintage press camera (with a 6×7 roll film holder from a Mamiya RB67). This is an intriguing camera. Utterly manual, so easy to make mistakes, and yet photo journalists of the past were expected to “get the shot” with this kind of gear. My respect for photographers of the past continues to rise.
