Leon A Perskie FDR Techniques
I've been trying to figure out what gives this picture of FDR such life, but haven't been able to find much information on it. I see the top reads "Eastman Safety Kodak", so it could be any Kodak safety film, and I guess it's just the excellent quality and the narrow focus range that I'm drawn to, but I've never seen a picture seem so life-like. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on technique or equipment to achieve such an effect.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
