    Hurrell's look didn't rely so much on make-up as retouching. Therefore, I wouldn't exactly say, "a lot of" make up.

    Oops, I forgot 1 lady movie star dressed to kill.

    Am I missing anything?
    Yes, film. For many, or most of these portraits the film was orthochromatic,not panchromatic. Some say there are ways to imitate ortho film with filters, not quite.

    When I worked in a portrait studio in the 60s, we used a tightly-stretched (to open the knit up more) piece of stocking on an embroidery hoop, under the enlarging lens, for 50% of the exposure. I believe someone has already mentioned that this isn't ideal because diffusing the enlargement spreads the shadows into the highlights, trending towards a low key effect, rather than what an SF lens does, spread the highlights into the shadows, illuminating them.

    Has anyone tried Black Dot type filters? I got a lot of Harrison & Harrison filters, put them into storage without even trying them. This thread has nudged me to find them.
