One more. This is the photographer, Calvin who assisted me for this portrait session. For my self portrait, I set up the camera, did the framing, chose the aperture annd shutter speed after metering him as the stand in. I also did the coarse focus, and he did the final fine focus as I switched places with him and became the sitter. He loaded the film and fired the shutter. Same camera, lens, film, development in the same Stearmann Press tank, and scans.
