p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Time warp to 1973

Years ago I shot some interesting subjects - and decided to go back into the archives to make a few prints that would be worthwhile to revisit after years of neglect. One such subject was a wonderful friend Carol shot in 1973.

In this case, we actually worked on a commercial advertising newspaper spread advertising a radio programme called "Hourglass". The planned shot was for a late 1800's or early 1900's theme in a historic house. Of course, aside from the planned image, I took a few out-takes before and after makeup was done.

The first image is the planned advertising shot - on a Canon F1 with a 28mm lens (It could have been the 19mm F3.5, but I am not sure) on Tri-X. I would have used the Leica, however I needed the 28mm (or wider) and did not have one for the Leica. Since the shooting required careful perspective and close proximity, the reflex camera was definitely better for this shot than the vague framing of the M4. Horses for courses

Since I had some time after Carol finished wardrobe, hair, and makeup, I took a few fun shots on a pair of Leicas. Since these were not for publication, a few shots in colour were in order. However most things were shot in B&W (in the ancient days, colour was much more expensive than B&W - I only shot colour "when necessary")
