Old picture, little known, help needed
I'm still scaning old pictures from my father and grandfather and I'm a bit puzzled how those where taken.
Here is an example from the early 50s, all I know is that it must have been taken with a Robot II because the negatives are 24x24 mm and my father had one he later traded for a Robot Royal 36. The film is Adox K17 and as far as I know the standard lens for a Robot II was f2.8.
This picture looks not like typical light in a german home in the early 50s, especialy not at a party. My father had enormous 1000W light bulbs but I don't think he used them there. I can remember when he bought his first electronic flash in 1964. So DOF is deeper than f2.8 would allow and the light is pretty even, what do you think?
Flash or those enormous light bulbs?
