    How fashion photographs are taken. M/S of retoucher at work on negative. Several good shots inside studio of Gee and Watson as model poses. The photograph is taken then the photographer chats to her whilst taking away the 'phone book she was standing on and the back rest which gave her the correct "attitude" for the photograph. Pins and tissue paper are taken out of the dress, they were used to make it sit correctly. M/S as she sits down before the next shot.
