I got back the first set of 5x7 negatives from Praus Productions and realized what an uphill battle this shift into large format films going to be. Most of the images I took with 5x7 were infinitely easier to produce and process on my Canon than on the Chamonix and for the interweb, the difference is more emotional than aesthetic. Regardless, I am enjoying the process shooting with the 5x7 immensely and when the time comes to print large, I will have the negs. Here are a few exposures I didn't take on my canon.

I just purchased an Epson Perfection v800 in order to scan my 4x5 and 5x7 negs. This has given me the opportunity to go back and play with some film that wasn't cohesive enough to print, but I always liked. This is from a trip in the Colorado Plateau in Utah from 1996. I obviously had Mark Klett on my mind.
I took my first exposures with my new Chamonix, the first large format images I have taken in nearly 25 years. The images are pretty forgettable, but I am very happy with the exposures. Thanks much to Mat Marrash for all his guidance.
