This photograph was taken with my 4x5 TOYO Camera using Type 55 Polaroid Film to capture my model Adrian's natural beauty while were both in College - ages ago ! I've selected this image to be part of this category due to the fact that I've grown out of the past utilizing film as my main medium for photography. But no matter how good digital may be, Film will always remain as natural and captivating as you can see with the portrait I have taken of Adrian.

For those who have never used film in photography. The emulsion residue frame shown is from the actual Polaroid. 100% intact and shown as photographed with no retouching whatsoever...
