Making the Unnatural Look Natural
Isn't that what photography is about? Black & white, static poses, selective focus, glossy surfaces. Making something unnatural represent the real world in a way that people see as real life. No one has skin tones like the lady in this photo, but a good colorist can make his subject seem, not just beautiful but warm and inviting. Written on the back, "mail with bell."
