Please excuse some family photos. The first of my son in a pile of leaves was taken about 1972 with a Spotmatic and 50mm f1.4 (first version). The second picture of my daughter was taken about 1983, but I cannot remember for sure what camera/lens - might have been the Spotmatic again or the ME Super that replaced it. In any case, it's a straight on flash shot using a Sunpak 522 "potato masher." Scanning has substantially reduced the IQ compared to the original chromes, but for portraits a slightly soft effect is acceptable --- I hope. Both my kids were a delight - good as gold (or a Pentax?). The kids make these images, not the photographer.
