The Victorians, driven by their Protestant work ethic, felt the need to indulge in "productive leisure" and went into the landscape to first draw, paint and later photographically record "views from nature" in search of beauty and the sublime. This is the origin of the term "View Camera".
Spending time in the landscape with a view camera forces you to connect with the place in a way that you might not if shooting digitally or even with film. The effort involved in setting up the camera and then making the exposure involves a conscious effort. You need to travel with the intention of making an image. With old brass lenses and long exposure times of slow calotype paper the process necessarily involves periods of waiting in the landscape. This can, in the words of Susan David, give you the space to "unhook" and think clearly, free from distraction.
