    Let me volunteer a thought, if you don't mind. Paul might have seen what you did. I think he would have printed the surrounding area of the white rock down a bit more and let the pearl glow. But then it wouldn't be your interpretation. Paul was a master silver printer. Last I heard he was still, "in the traditional darkroom with silver and chemistry."

    Thanks for posting. Location?

    Thanks, Merg. I had already brought the surroundings of the "egg" down more than I might otherwise - and at that point it was far more of a departure from reality than I usually come up with! But perhaps I'm too timid. I'll try even more! The location was somewhere on the Oregon Coast, I think around Cape Lookout, if I recall correctly. I haven't gotten over to the coast lately, but I need to...

    Alterative was to "multi-pop" which was also very, very common. That Minolta flash meter IV has a "multi" setting to meter the effective exposure f-stop after multi-pops from the strobe/flash. This was a common flash meter feature back in the day. Single was preferred, except single was not always an option.

    Once the subject and camera was set, most of the time spent was on lighting followed by pull-A-roids before any film was exposed.

    The two Elinchrom 3000AS power packs used for this setup..
