Gloria Dawn, photography by Donald G. Klumpp
My favorite magazine layout was the one in Escapade, Dec
1963. The photographer, Donald Klumpp, was young and on a budget. We
shot the entire layout in his small apartment.
This was the top photograph on the opening page. A couple of people have asked for a print copy of this image but after many hours of trying to get it clear, I had to give up. Some magazine pictures cannot be transformed into print-quality photos. This one looks great in the magazine and on the internet, but Klumpp used a slow shutter speed while I swung the beads, and as a consequence everything is slightly blurred. The internet forgives imperfections; print does not.
