Marie Deveraux – She Walks in Beauty

Just two images from ‘She Walks in Beauty’ by Harrison Marks of Marie Deveraux.  One stunning full length shot of her and that fine figure, the other wearing the familiar blonde wig and scarf showing her breasts off between some drift wood.  There were many more of Marie in GHM’s earlier hardback publication ‘Kamera on Location’ with Pamela Green and Lorraine Burnett.  I’d love scanned copy if anyone out there knows of one or has one they are willing to share?

How Much Editing Do I Do?

Someone asked the question on how much I edit the images published on here, which doesn’t have a straightforward answer!  It depends! It depends on the size and quality of the original, but my view is that I only restore or enhance, but not alter.  Most of the time it’s restoring colour, removing blemishes and scratches and tweaking highlights and contrast and re-sizing if they are large files.  Overall, nothing that drastically alters the context of the original.

I’ll use another June Palmer shot as an example.

The original image scanned directly from a 120 film negative

 My Edit – A slight crop of the image, colours enhanced and restored & a few scratches removed and that is it!

The purists will say don’t mess with the original, but I prefer the colours in my edit!   

The image is another JP original from John W of June as Joanna Kent in strawberry blonde wig on the beach and I love it!  I think it’s the pose and June’s bum!
