    Ground glass/film holder measurements

    Hi everybody! Happy 2012! I have a question regarding spring backs and ground glass measurements.

    When you build a spring back, and you're figuring out how deep to set the ground glass, should the back side (plane facing the photographer) or the front side (plane facing the inside of the camera) be aligned with the film plane of the sheet film holder?

    Any practical experience/advice is much appreciated!

    Very best,

    BEN

    the side closest to the len (front side, which is the ground side), should sit on the film plane.
