This post is about the hair on the head of the Patterson film subject and what the film shows of it. One must remember that the film is rather low contrast, which makes much of the hair detail sort of blend homogeneously. There is enough difference in the tones, however, that with filtering, the hair patterns become evident. In this clip below, filtration is applied which results in a black and white clip that has had the contrast boosted to show a much improved image as far as the hair on the head is concerned. Watch the hair blow from off the head, and around and over the ear. The clip will oscillate back and forth so that this can be readily seen.
Here’s a clip without the delay:
When the hair swings over the ear, the ear is exposed to the camera for a few seconds. Here is the ear. On the left is the raw image, on the right is the enhanced image. What are your thoughts? Does the ear look like a “normal” ear to you? M.K.
