June Palmer – Restored Reality (Original)

John sent me a scan of his original negative for this shot that I published a while back in black and white, hoping I could work my magic on the poor quality of the negative and try to restore it.  Well above you can see my effort, which isn’t bad if you compare it to the very red original.  Unfortunately to compensate for the red tinge you do get a slight green to some of the whites, but it was the best I could do without losing the colour completely, hence my original conversion to black and white. A cracking shot of June whatever colour she is shown in, but I still think the black and white version wins it for me.

Ann Wilson – Taxed & Ready To Ride! (1965)

Ann Wilson from Solo No.44 (1965) posing in the open door of Harrison Marks white Buick, which was used in a number of shoots.  This shot clearly shows the tax disc on the side window giving the date of January 1965, which always helps when trying to date a photo. Not to be distracted at peripheral stuff, Ann looks equally stunning stood in that open door nude and I’d grab a ride with her any day!

Margaret Nolan – Kamera No.48 (1962)

I haven’t published enough of Margaret lately, so to rectify that we have a great shot of Maggie on the bed in GHM’s flat and this was the first image on page 2 of Kamera No.48 (1962).  What a great opening image to greet you with as you flick open this edition of Kamera! There are nine shots of Margaret in total in Kamera No.48 and they consist of her posing alone and with Maria Clarence on location down in Cornwall and all are as enticing as this shot.

Virginia Green – Pampered Pose (Original)

 

I was looking for an inspirational shot for posting today and it came in the guise of this stunning shot of Virginia Green sent by Kevin.  I love the pose of Virginia sat nude at the dressing table with her arms above her head with her fluffy slippers below her. The contents on the dressing table are interesting, we have talc (French Miss?), a compact and olive oil, what a combination! Thanks to Kevin as always for another great photo from his vast archive 🙂

Jean Belvin Revealed! (1958)

This model or her name has been frustrating me since I started this blog a few years ago and the shot below was one of the first image restorations that I did.  She’s been on my unknown model list as No.4 for a long time, that is up until now thanks to Jeff.

Jeff has now identified the model as Jean Belvin, who not only appears in Kamera No.11 (1958), but other early Kamera publications such as Kamera Special No.2 (1958) and Toco magazines and Carnival Magazine (June 1958) as sent through by Jeff below

Jean Belvin-01

Thanks Jeff, another frustrating unknown model identified 🙂
