This is a photo I stumbled across recently from a shoot I did almost 10 years ago. It was one of the few I've taken with a 4x5 view camera. I used Polaroid film for this shot, and thus it is the only image. There is no negative, so I re-photographed the image with my DSLR and "cleaned it up" with Photoshop. Often, I'll digitally manipulate an image to create a shallow depth of field, but they invariably look wrong somehow. This photo is an example of the real McCoy: good old-fashioned genuine view camera imagery.
