Martha Raye Commercial

Model  Marthy Raya
The last of the batch of 8x10 negatives for digitatalizing: Actress Martha Raye posing for a commercial ad. Shot around 1950.

The negative was warped, but with a large aperture (extended depth of field) and the worst warping in the unsharp areas it turned out pretty well. The negative was heavily worked over by retouching, adding wrinkles and emphasizing hair sharpness.  You can zoom in to go spotting for some of the work.

Because, obviously, that is the outfit one would wear for ironing. :D

Haha, I think this was done to emphasize her status :-)
