    Maybe a Carbon Arc light when starting. http://edisontechcenter.org/ArcLamps.html

    Like an arc stick welder which I have used extensively for welding, with fire extinguishers handy and somebody to spot fire as the user cannot see a fire.

    Welders like to light their friend's pants on fire and see the dance and cursing.

    Been there.

    What are you trying to capture? People don't like that much oompfh.

    I use multiple pops on very still, dead things, only.

    Very nice references, thanks. I guess I'm fantasizing about using the 1070mm. I'd want to get a unique result to make it worthwhile. I thought the increased depth of field sounded interesting, but probably not interesting enough to make the effort worthwhile. I'm still thinking in the context of a portrait, so I agree, most people wouldn't be thrilled about being blasted with blinding light.

    Keep that lens and use it differently.

    I have a 900 mm and an 890 mm both have been used on my SC11, just find more room to subject.

    I also put the 890 in a window for camera obscura.

    One of these years I will cut a hole in my cargo trailer for the same thing. Maybe even make big paper negs.

    So many projects, so little time left...

    Maybe not, I could live 30 more years...

    Do you feel the resulting photos have certain unique qualities?

    Certainly!

    But I like to try things.

    Your 1070 mm is made for much bigger formats than a mere 11X14

    Wow! Great reference.

    I have to admit, I enjoy just holding the Apo-Ronar - the weight, quality, glass, movement of the diaphragm, it's impressive.

    Don't exercise the aperture.

    They do fail. I have one or 3, I try to never move unless absolutely making a good capture.

    I also have a Verito with no aperture, that's OK for me.

    Ah! That's nice to know. I don't foresee going bigger than 11x14 but who knows. I always envied Elsa Dorfman and her 20x24 Polaroids.

    http://www.elsadorfman.com/about-the-camera

    "I use only one lense w/ the camera. Made in Chicago, it is 600 mm, f 11.0. The closest I can get is about 10" below the chin. Occassionally, at the Polaroid studio at the Mass College of Art I have used a close-up lens."
