Yes, I know many people did it back in the day with Big Bertha cameras - Speed Graphics with huge lenses that took several people to operate and had to be pre-focused where they wanted the photo. But I didn't do that. I took out my US Army Signal Corps Speed Graphic (which I was chastised for using by one person because it's a collectible!) with the standard-issue 127mm f/4.7 Ektar and snapped a few photos of the VSU Homecoming football game as well as the marching band half-time show. I used T-Max 100 film since it was a nice sunny day. I didn't meter anything, I just shot sunny/16, mostly at f/8 and 1/250 since I shot the T-Max at ISO 64 and developed in Rodinal at N-1:
You might notice some odd DOF effects on the second and fourth photo. That's because I was messing around and did some backwards tilt on the front standard to give that effect.
I also decided to bring my "new" Bessa RF 6x9 folder to the game to make some snapshots using some outdated Fuji 400H film. Here's the results, developed myself using a Tetenal kit. I had some light leaks from forgetting to close the red window and also a slight amount of uneven development.
As you can see, none of these are up-close, in-your-face sports photos. But that really wasn't the point (though I can crop for miles if I want on the 4x5). Either way it was a ton of fun shooting film instead of digital at this game! I am going to try to do it more often.
