(Shot with Toyo-Omega 4x5, Schneider 135mm lens, Polaroid Type 55 P/N film. Lighting: Hand-built ringlight.)

After building my first ringlight, I had Professor Dominick Martorelli, Associate Professor of the University of North Florida’s Photography Department, sit for a portrait. Professor Martorelli never enjoyed having his photo taken, but was intrigued by the lighting system I had built. For this portrait, I shot with a 135mm lens on a Toyo / Omega 4x5 view camera at f/16 and an exposure of 1/30 of a second. Rather than shooting traditional sheet film, I decided to use Polaroid Type 55 P/N film in order to immediately show Professor Martorelli the results. Polaroid P/N film produces both a positive and a reusable negative. Upon seeing the results, Professor Martorelli was extremely pleased with how he looked due to the soft and even lighting produced by the ringlight.
