For this photo, I used my Toyo Field 45A and Schneider Super Angulon 90/5.6 lens. I mounted the camera on a tripod. Then focus the image on ground glass. Due to the have a clear picture of the whole frame, I used from the camera movement. I got bent the front camera, towards the front. Then I move enough ground glass on the rear side, until the image is perfectly in focus.
However, due to Locating to trees at the top of the image creates problems in focus. I tried using a combination of tilt and aperture, and the camera body roller, and using the view camera focusing method, would solve this problem. I kept the IIIC center filter in front of the lens by hand. The image recorded, with aperture 22 and shutter speed 1/2 seconds on Kodak E100VS 4x5in film.
