Myrna Loy

MyrnaLoy_SmallI guess I am on my classic movie  mindset.  This is a scan of an early career portrait of actress Myrna Loy — whom Cary Grant described as “the wife we all want” — and to the best of my knowledge the image is public domain.  In some ways this is a photographic study image — an absolutely beautiful, IMHO, portrait showing the art of photography, and in another way it is a demonstration of the craft side of making photographic images.  While I cannot take any credit for the artistic side, I do for the craft side.  Blemishes which happen over time and by nature of scanning were removed from the image, it was digitally enlarged, and the tonal range was expanded to produce what I find to be a superb demonstration of the craft side of photographic images (and yes, I’m patting myself on the back a bit).  Take a look at the full version here.
