Thelma Todd In Soft Focus

Soft focus photos used to be fashionable, some photographers still take them. This one was by Russell Ball.


Please note that "soft focus" does not  mean out of focus. Soft focus effects combine a sharp picture with a diffused one, which is a different effect. The technique works best with large format cameras such as were in use at that time.
