    Pedestrian’s Foot

    If I wanted to recreate the photograph taken by Otto Steinert in 1950 called Pedestrian’s Foot, can anyone suggest how it could be done?

    Shoot from above.
    Long exposure.
    Show the model the photograph of what you want.
    Tell the model to not move his foot but move everything else.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I'd double print from two negatives, quite easy in this case.

    Image manipulation in the days before digital.

    Such manipulation has been around almost from day one of photography.

    I'm not so sure it would be that easy to do with the model moving everything but their foot on a long exposure, or with combination printing. I think it was a false foot/leg with a slightly longer trouser leg flapping around in the wind.

    One-half second exposure should work for a subject with a brisk walking pace. Time the shutter opening with the planting of the foot on the ground. Dark clothing and a light background will complete the effect.

    Would you like to do this and post your result, as I don't think it would work.

    Looks like there was another pedestrian with a frozen foot on the bottom left that he dodged out in printing.
