Horydczak's Photographic Equipment and Technique
In taking his photographs Horydczak usually employed a large-format camera, the Gold Ansco, which was well suited to photographing views and buildings. He appears to have favored the eight-by-ten-inch negative format.
Virtually identical views of certain subjects abound in Horydczak's negatives, a result of his use of the common technique of "bracketing," or making multiple exposures at different camera aperture settings.
