This is part of a series I am doing to try to duplicate classic product photography images from the past.
I can't upload the image that inspired this shot, but I can credit the Art Director and the photographer of the original:
Ad from a haberdashery magazine
Photographer: Peter Scolamiero
Art Director: Frank Perry
Agency: Fuller, Smith & Ross, Inc., New York
Unfortunately I can't find a link to the original image. I t is featured in the old Carl Koch "Photo Know How" self study view camera course, that I had acquired many years ago while working in a shared space that Sinar-Bron was also sharing.
