Theolonius Monk Jr. by LAT staff/Jim Mendenhall.  February 23 in Captial Records round iconic building in Los Angeles, CA. Appears that it was shot on Kodak 25 ISO color negative film. Lighted with a strip soft box light the small one about 10 x 30 in which he is facing. Since he and his father recorded on the Blue Note label, I added a blue light to the background white wall in the office we used and then shot a white strobe up through a potted plant to make the blue mottled for some eye relief. copyright Los Angeles Times. this is a vintage kodak dye transfer print done at the LAT lab by the photographer, scanned 20130307 in Mt. Lebanon, PA.
