Sup guys my name is Tevin Lewis Sr I recently brought my first professional camera #Canon5DMarkIV I see the world as a series of moving stills so I capture it every once in a while, Follow and see what's it's like
Nearly 12 years ago I started photographing architecture using a Toyo-View 4"x5" 45GII monorail view camera. Those were the days when you would shoot using transparency film, infrared film etc. to achieve rich blacks, white white's and perfect midtones. I absolutely fell in love with the view camera. It allowed me to correct converging lines without distorting the building. Not to mention the incredible clarity and crisp edges you would get using the Rodenstock lenses.
The top photo was shot in New Jersey of a dilapidated house on RT 46 twelve years ago using the 4x5 view camera and the photo below of the barn was shot two weeks ago in Rockland using my digital 5D Mark IV using the canon tilt-shift 24mm F3.5 II. These images may not be the most glamorous work in my portfolio but to me, they told a story... one worth sharing.
It's incredible the difference in quality. I must admit, I miss shooting with film and especially using 4x5 view camera.
