I'm sure the camera was on a tripod and used a long shutter speed. Probably had the shutter open for about 1 minute. This would have been done in manual mode or shutter priority mode, ussually Tv on the dial. The aperature was probably set to about 11 or 16 giving great depth of field (area in focus).

thanks for the ideas. I'm just learning about depth of field. I'm dying to learn how to shorten depth of field to blur things that always get in my background such as trash cans! lol is a smaller number a shorter depth of field?

Yes the smaller the number the shorter the area that shows up in focus. Makes portraits look really nice and the faces "pop" in the picture. The photogrpher could have "tweeked" some things in photoshop, but you can't edit in focus. You can make things a little more crisp but not THAT crisp. And even if the person did edit with Photoshop, that is not a bad thing. Many professional photographers use photoshop in some way. You have to with the loss of almost all film. You can think of Phiotoshop the modern darkroom.
<sigh> I really miss the days of taking picture with film. I always loved seeing the images "appear" on the paper... <sigh>

If you have any more questions, PM me. I will try my best to answer.

Thanks so much for your advice. You know... digital cameras are now finally as good as or exceeds some of the best photos that we used to get with our film camera. We had a Kodak camera with the oval shaped film canisters. Can't remember what it was called. It took excellent pictures that weren't matched until the current generation of digitals (not counting my BIL's digi which is a professional camera). When I was little, I had a camera that had 127 roll film that you had to load with a towel over your head (at the beach) to keep it from getting exposed. It was a Brownie! lol I'm sure glad those days are long gone!

I hhave two of my gradfather's brownies! I love them. I actually wish they made film for thme still. I would love to see how the pictures turn out. I have n old 4x5 that I haven't used in YEARS.... Again, don't know if they make the film anymore. Then again I haven't tried looking. I've also made a few pinhole cameras and even custom made an attachment pinhold to fit over my Cannon film camera to get the ponhole affect using film.
Can you tell I'm a photo freak! Got my degree in photography but can't make a steady living taking pics. So I now it's just a "hobby" lol
