Timberline with my Titan 4×5

I am in love with large format photography. I’ve owned my Titan 4×5 pinhole camera for a few years but since listening to both The Lensless Podcast and the Large Format Photography Podcast I am totally back in. I recently purchased the Titan 8×10 and later today I plan to develop my first sheets of film from the camera. I’m a bit nervous as I’ve never developed 8×10 sheet film. Fingers crossed.

On Mother’s Day Ron and I took a drive up to Timberline Lodge at Mt Hood, Oregon. I was hoping to make some 8×10 images of the lodge but there were too many cars blocking the best view point. So I changed direction and made images of the trees, dead and alive. After visiting Timberline we decided to drive on to Trillium Lake but the road is still closed and we had too much equipment to hike in. We will return later when the road is open.

These are the images I made with the 4×5 Titan. I used Ilford Delta 100 film and the exposures were all just a few seconds of time. I had expected more clouds but by the time we got there the sun was out. Luckily no finger tips showed up in my images. I would love to find a 4 stop ND filter that would fit my Titan. Any ideas?

Enjoy the mountain:

It’s such a beautiful place.
