TAKEN BY A PRO! Perfect balance was achieved by the operator, along with obvious exquisite light that entered from directly above the tiny subject who sat impassively on that wooden chair made for a male of his stature.

Without a doubt, the preparation of the archivally sealed sixth plate was perfect. The holographic depth, range of contrast and broad tonality would have garnered the camera operator an A+! Opening the leather case that has a repaired spine will reveal an image that aged almost perfectly!
