    • What was interesting to find, was that the glamour photographers did use gorgeous lighting techniques, but in a new book on George Hurrell, it also shows how he retouched photos as well — just fascinating!

      • I am such a fan of Hurrell’s work. This photograph is so powerful I can almost hear them breathing. And yes, the lighting and retouching techniques used here are gorgeous! A master!

    And then along came Mr. Hurrell…a young upstart out of nowhere who got a little lucky but had a LOT of talent. And V, I have that book but it is not new…unless you have a new edition of it…?
    Bisous! Hope that you are well lovely lady!
