Finally I have some people in my 4×5 photos! I much prefer photographing people over anything else, but for much of my 4×5 work I end up shooting objects instead. Partially that is because objects are far more patient than people and they will stand still for me to set up my view camera. This time I was on a photowalk with some of my fellow Oklahoma Film Photographers and set up my Toyo VX-125 film camera to capture this photo of part of our group in front of the Flaming Lips building in downtown Oklahoma City. I shot this with a Rodenstock 135mm F5.6 lens. I set up the shot then had a passerby trip the shutter after I ran to get in the photo.
