Serenity... by Graflex

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?

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

Sharon Young

Sharon Young by Graflex

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.

Three's a Crowd

Three's a Crowd by Graflex

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...

Showtime Chorus

Showtime Chorus by Graflex

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.


Joan Regan

Joan Regan by Graflex

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.


Palladium Nights

Palladium Nights by Graflex

My word, what a memory jerker! I can see me watching this (as a kid) on our tiny Pye television with its rounded screen and unsharp images. Magical.
Thanks H.


Showgirls... by Graflex

Yes G3, absolutely. Stay real Horace and keep posting great stuff like this.

Jayne Mansfield

Jayne Mansfield by Graflex

Cor, four for the price of two.
Thanks H, I remember her well -- The Girl Can't Help It -- from an era when glamour was real and photography was too.
Just keep posting stuff like this. I'm hooked on your portfolio because it's real and we can believe what we see. Don't EVER Photoshop your pics H.


St.Trinian's by Graflex

Great. What a bunch of little monsters. I just wonder if the 'new' St Trinians film is as good. I'll bet they've concentrated on acres of black-stockinged legs instead of what Searle intended -- uncontrolled mischievous mayhem. I have to admit I wouldn't complain too loudly but a combination of both would be ideal. Well done H. And thanks...

Dickie Valentine

Dickie Valentine by Graflex

I couldn't agree more with Canonshot. You can't judge this sort of shot because it is what it is. However, what it does have is stunning technique that rivals anything we see today. Just how far have we come? Bresson was right about the decisive moment and Neil was right too -- the essence of photography at its best.
I'm a fan of work like this. Count me in.

Ted & Max

Ted & Max by Graflex

You've captured two professional images and characters in one shot. Top quality image. I'm glad you disabled voting on some of your shots because stuff like this is so good voting would cheapen it. Besides, you would only get about six votes anyway. Pure photography comes second to Photoshop 'imaging' on EPZ -- dig out out the cliches... What you have to do is find a coal cellar, use your best mate as a model; put a syringe on the floor, underexpose the pic so it only has two tones and wait for the votes to flood in. Yuk. No more... Please...

Aileen Cochrane

Aileen Cochrane by Graflex

This shot is all about technique. Superb.

Bikini Girl..

Bikini Girl.. by Graflex

Wow, what a great shot. Love the setting and adore the girl...

Johnnie Ray

Johnnie Ray by Graflex

Documentation, history and atmosphere all in one photograph. Great shot. Thanks H.

Royal Ballet

Royal Ballet by Graflex

Lovely. Perfect choice of pose and the viewpoint maximizes the reflections. Spot on.
