Product description: Galaxy Galaxy is a monochrome image showing a nautilus shell that has been cut in half. The sectioned shell is seen nearly edge-on as an open spiral on a black background. The shell was placed before the camera with support from behind (away from the viewer) in a dimly lit room. A diffused strobe was placed on the left. By exposing for the highlights with a higher shutter speed, the background and support were under-exposed and allowed to go black. A white card on the right side was placed to open up the shadow areas some. This image was created on 8x10 inch black-and-white sheet film in an antique Kodak 2-D view camera mounted with a 210mm/f-5.6 Schneider Symmar lens.
