I love old things. Like this old television studio camera for example. Look at the size of this beast! They just don't make them like they used to. This example of 1950s technology came out of the John F. Kennedy library in Boston, MA. The original shot was taken in terrible museum lighting. In order to get a workable image I painstakenly cut out the television camera with Abobe Photoshop and then massaged the image in Topaz Labs using some High Dynamic Range (HDR) effects. The result is kind of hyper real, almost illustration-like but I like how it brought out all the details in this old workhorse of a 1950s television studio.
