A Perfectly Exposed Avra Bennett (1961)

Avra Bennett perfectly exposed in the studio by Harrison Marks. This uncensored version comes directly from the negative, but it was also published in Kamera No.37 P9 (1961) in it’s slightly censored version, not that you could tell as you can hardly see anything controversial in this shot!

The photo published in Kamera was also one of the pages that also included the camera and lighting settings for the shot, because let’s not forget Kamera was a study of photography through the female form and we all wanted to know the camera and light settings, didn’t we! So for all those that want to know, the details were Camera: Hasselblad, Exposure: 30th at f11, 4000 watts tungsten light on Weston 64 speed film. As I said a perfectly exposed shot of Arva, but I tend to focus on the less technical side of things, as I’m a much more of a visual person 😉

Smoking Beauty by Roland Carre

There is something highly erotic about this unknown model posing nude in the studio for Roland Carre. I don’t know if it’s the very classic 1950’s look she has or the fact that apart from some stockings and the cigarette is is totally nude, showing off her perfect figure with a slight tan line. The tan line only helps to highlight those beautiful tits and thick natural pussy, a perfect combination.

I have several sets of this model by Roland Carre, all probably taken at the same time, but all are equally as arousing and erotic in their own different ways!

June Palmer – A Familiar Look! (Original)

After a break of over 3 weeks I’m back off my holiday and thought I’d start where I left off with an image of June! This was waiting for me on my return from John W from a set of 35mm negative close ups of June taken during the late 1970’s. I kept coming back to this shot, not because it really shows off anything, but I just liked the framing and composition of the shot. I love that it’s a close up and she’s looking directly into the camera from below. A different but great shot of June.

Normal service will now resume on the site, with hopefully a few more posts now I’m back 🙂

Annette & Diane – Double Tops! (Original)

A two for one with this shot featuring Annette Johnson and Diane Grant from an original 35mm black and white negative. I’d never seen this set before of the two together, but I get the impression they were taken in a studio for a group of photographers, either professional or more likely amateur. In most shots they are both looking in different directions, with Annette tending to look directly at the camera and Diane to be looking off to the side. So either Diane was camera shy or was facing another camera to the side?

A very distracting sight for the photographers as well with these two sat in front of you posing naked.

All There With Doreen Pierre! (Original)

I’ve published several colour shots of a rather revealing Doreen Pierre before here, but never realised that she actually posed for Harrison Marks and appeared in Kamera. The above shot is one of her from a studio session with Marks and 6 shots of her including this shot on page 40 appear in Kamera No.71 (1966). Unlike the more revealing colour shots I’ve published, this shot although uncensored shows a very neat, tidy and shaven Doreen down below, making it ever so easy for the retouchers when editing this shot for publication back then.

Doreen had a great tanned body and figure, with more shots of her to come 🙂
