Caption: Young boy
with missing tooth
Technical data: Photo taken with a tripod mounted Olympus SLR film
camera and Zuiko 85mm f2 lens using existing daylight. Approximate
exposure 1/500 second at f8.0 - Kodak T-Max 400 black & white film,
processed normally. No lens filters were used.
Film was scanned using a Nikon

Photoshop; levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and dust spot
removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo processing.
