Flash From The Past: May 16, 2003

I drew my inspiration for this shot from a photo I saw in National Geographic. Of course I didn’t execute this type of photo as well as I did 4 years later when I shot blackface performer Shirley Q. Liquor. In 2007 I had lenses that could let in 4x more light than the lenses I had in 2003, allowing me to make much sharper photos in low light.
