    Genre is a bad word.

    But I'm an illustrator so I've done plenty. Maybe there are others who are prepared to out their stuff. This is fp3 4x5 in a Technica with two umbrellas and an unrepeatable permit.

    Perfect! Please, more of the "story". Most of us can only dream of doing this photo!

    Thanks all. Client was Moriselle, a perfume. Headline something like "Moriselle is talking about you". I borrowed the kids from the American School in Milan, rehearsed them in my studio, dressed them english and took them to the Brera art museum where the model was waiting in front of Gentile Bellini's "St. Mark Preaching in Alexandria".
    I had permission for a 5 minute shoot with tripod and hand-held flash (times have changed since then). The kids knew their job. I managed three shots with the Linhof (viewfinder and rangefinder). here's a reject with a dress which was a mistake and had to be changed on the spot behind the umbrellas:

    Hmm... do you need a wardrobe helper? I don't mind working behind umbrellas.

    Utterly fantastic. Somewhere I have one in this genre home (in a book), but cannot remember who it was. You have exceeded it, considerably.
