Pens and Paper

Designing Bellows.  Nikon D7000
6th October 2012

The paper bellows on my little 6x9 view camera are starting to wear out.   I need to make a new set, so thought I would take the time to document the process of designing bellows.

It has taken a fair few hours, but was well worth it as now I do not have to remember exactly what to do, or where it is in my log books that I worked out the method.

As the ruler and set square are pretty colours, I thought they would also make a nice 'geometrical' picture.

For those who are interested in designing bellows, the PDF file is here.
