Hello everyone!

For all the facebook users I'd like to share some of our "aged" ree-photographic efforts of the 3rd troop of No.10 Commando.
If someone is doing similar pictures, it'd be great to share them as well! :)

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... uploaded=1

Cheers!
Martin

Looking very good indeed. The only thing that caught my eye was the cigarette in the photo with the Sergeant wearing goggles on his cap comforter. Is it just me, or is it rather longer than was the norm back then?

I think the cigarette is ok.. standart civie German or Italian cigarettes were about 100 of modern size. But short smokes were military issue indeed.

Oh how I love the detail we go to - the length of cigarettes! Well done!

...talking about detail, I have just been reading in our local paper an article by someone who objects to the wrong font being used in films: "Why does a props team for a 1940s movie print a document in Snell Roundhand Bold when it wasn't invented until the 1970s".

Well.. it's good to take care about detail like Joe did, but some people can't see the whole thing in the result just, because of fanatic nitpicking.
Such a people are probably forgetting it is still a fun.. not a secondary job.
And in my opinion, the whole thing about portraiting something/someone properly is the way, not the goal..

Please don't think that I'm trying to nitpick. I think the photos look excellent, and could easily be mistaken for originals. The fact that the cigarette was the only thing that jumped out as looking out of place to me, is a tribute to the quality of the work that you've put into your impressions.

Joe, it was nothing against you in any way, as I wrote before! I meant it in general..
And thank you once more. We're trying to get as close as possible.
