re-learing the view camera

Borrowed a Toyo View Camera to study it.
It's a bit anachronistic, it seems, these days, with all the corrections you can do in Photoshop and such, but I think it's a knowledge you have to possess and preserve.
I am going to shoot a studio project using not 4"by5" but rather a 120mm film cassette.I'll try to relearn the basics and the advanced features, such as using the tilt shift, a lens that can close up to f64 !!!!
working with an upside- down view (camera obscura) isn't going to be easy but all in all-
I am very exited.
