Opera Singers

After several months of on and off testing, I finally am able to make decent scans at home. At a workshop several weeks ago I was told to set the unsharp masking to -120. Now I would ask how  anyone could have figured this out - except for the fact that it works brilliantly.

Yesterday I was doing some catalog work with my film archives and I found the image above. Best I can remember is they were Opera Singers - I believe they were mother and son. This image was taken in the early 70's for Zoo World Magazine based out of Florida.

If  anyone might know who these people are please get in contact with me.

  1. How wonderful that you learned a great way to scan work form your archives Harry...this shot is very cool, what fun! I hope you find out who they are...

    I love the Minor White quote, it is intuitive...and a perfect description of your eloquent work...
