    I don't believe Avedon did his own printing. I'm sure he had 'his' printer and worked closely w/ him/her so Rich got the look he was after.

    Its full of dodge/burning and sharpening executed extremely well. If you search around you will find some correction notes on those portraits. Its pretty intense

    Re: Portrait Lens Question

    Thanks very much everyone. I have a follow-on question. So there are numerous plasmats on ebay as just lens elements. I have a suitable copal shutter (3) on hand (with abort lens in it). What is the hassle factor to purchase lens elements and use them on the copal i have? I'll caveat by saying that the copsl has the wrong aperture scale screw over the original (I'm going to see what's under it) and that there is a spacer ring in use currently (are these lens specific?).

    Many thanks.
