    I agree. Nice composition for a double portrait. Lovely (realistic) skin tones thanks to the lighting and some skilful styling. Thank heavens you didn't Photoshop the image -- you'd have ended up with ceramic skin. What's next H?

    No Horace, leave it alone! This girl hasn't been eating her Special K and looks all the better for it. Nice shot.

    H, I don't know the model... Karen who?

    A right royal wedding! Now I know who she is... a star of steam radio. Those were the days...

    Great idea - making the best of what you've got makes this shot. The fill-in flash is perfect.

    Tell me H why is it that Rollei users are the most loyal in photography? Could it be that it was largely manufactured from metal instead of plastic? Or... is it quite simply a 'proper' camera? Anyway, what ever it is, I want one.

    Ah, the Braun EF3 with its tube-shaped, flash tube and 360 degrees swivelling (removable) reflector. I remember it well. Even today it would have been a great piece of kit. I guess it was perfect for shots like this. Back in the late '60s the EF3 served as my very first studio flash. I bought a photo-brolly, mounted it on a tripod and used a piece of string to position the ensemble and give me the correct exposure. Shove a roll of FP3 in the C3 (or Rollei) and off you go. Magic. Just like your photo H...

    Great shot H. Glamour was glamour in those days -- no tin pot celebs or soap stars. These people did it the hard way. They paid their dues and had talent.

    Just keep stimulating my memory banks. I love your portfolio.

    Wow! The subject's warmth and sincerity simply leaps out at you. This is obviously one nice lady, captured perfectly by someone who understands the true meaning of portraiture. No airbrushing or de-humanisation. It must make EPZ's army of Photoshop sycophants spill tears all over their 'airbrush' filters.

    Remember the famous Bette Davis quote: "Don't you dear remove these [facial] lines. I worked hard to get them!"

    More of this kind of work... please Horace.
