  1. Such masking devices are only required now because unlike Adams, photographers do not on the whole use a large format view camera.
    When using a large format such as 8×10, you are forced to cut out all the surroundings and concentrate on what the lens sees. It may be upside down and back to front but it certainly makes you look.

    Perhaps in later years as Mr Adams began to use smaller formats he needed a mask to give him a similar effect to the view camera.
