23/365 Got a Light Mac?

I’ve been looking at the studio pictures of the ’40s see. You know the ones. They used to send them out to all the fans with a fake signature on ’em. Anyways so I got to thinkin’. I wonder if a mug like me could do that kinda stuff. So I gives it a try with Thomasz, my Hungarian friend.

You got a light mac?

So it isn’t exactly the same. It isn’t black and white. It has some of my twisted processing going on in there too but it works for me.

    Damn! That one is really awesome, his expression, the POSE is perfect, and the the lighting, especially that shadow. I think you got the essence of the Hollywood Glamour shots here, but the really hard ones I think are the lady shots…I’ve looked at those and can’t even quite figure out what they’ve got going on in terms of lighting. You should give one of those a try, I bet you’d nail it too.

    Thanks Leon. The problem with this is that there wasn’t any particular pattern of lighting. Togs like George Hurrell used hot lights and played and played and played. There are a few portraits using similar patterns but it wasn’t like Rembrandt lighting.

    You may be right about the women. I’m in the hunt for a model this week. Got to find some props too.
