Young's Photo Gallery
James W. Young,
Portrait - Posed
specialty, I have tried to use images that were specifically posed
or by the photographer. There are images in the 'People' specialty
that were posed, but in here these images were intended for obtaining
best one out of several shots of the subject(s).
My brother Mike, in 1958, for my first
posed set of pictures.
My second posed subject was Margaret Young
(no relation), Her parents
wanted a color school type photograph of their daughter in
the spring of
1959. This was taken at Margaret's house in Seattle, Washington
I was in High School.
Margaret's friend, Susan Schreiber, sat for
me for a similar set of images
also in the spring of 1959, across the street from my house in Seattle.
