Here’s a picture of the photographer John Capewell of Westville, New Jersey sitting with his wife Ella in the shade of a tree. John and Ella look very young in this picture compared to others in the collection. I assumed it was a picture from when they were courting, and I was going to title this post Young Sweethearts, but I had a closer look at the negative.
Here’s the whole glass negative:
As with all of the photographs in the Capewell Collection, I placed the 5â€³ x 7â€³ glass negative on a lightbox and shot them with a digital camera locked down on a tripod. The â€œprocessingâ€ was done digitally on a Mac using Adobe Photoshop.
