The Trumpet Player …

These are Type 55 / Pos-Neg 4×5 Polaroid scans from the negative made back in the 1980’s.  I knew this guy and he had come in for a newsprint.  After I finished with what he came in for, I asked if he would mind letting me take a few photos of him with this horn I had bought at an auction.  I made the images on a Sinar 4×5 camera that I used for architectural photography and copy work.   I have been looking for these negatives for several years and finally ran across them several weeks ago when I was cleaning out a storage room at my parent’s house in Cordova Park.  They were in very good condition, so I did not have to do much Photoshop cleaning the scratches and dust.  Below is another from this sitting.

I scanned the film marks, so you could see the full frame.  I bought several boxes of several different types of Polaroid sheet film before they went out of business.  If anyone has any questions or comments, please let me hear them.  Thanks for looking and have a Happy New Year!
