    Your work is really interesting and you are doggedly persistent. I tinkered a bit with B&W photography and sheet film cameras many years ago. My mentor told me one day that you can make positive images on B&W film by using ultra long exposures. That seemed unlikely to me so I had to try. Turns out it works. The exposure time has to be measured in hours – 4 or 5 at a minimum. I tried all day on a very bright sunny day setting my camera up in a house across the street from a church. I opened the lens at 9 AM and closed it around 5 PM. The next step is to develop the film like photographic paper NOT FILM! The image is a positive transparency. It was interesting to see that shadows under ledges on the church were perfect semi-circles. Have you ever tried such a thing on your huge camera? I would think you would have to set it up indoors looking out in order to avoid it being blown over. I long ago lost the pictures and no longer have a darkroom having gone digital.
