This is a 40 year old image shot on 35mm film. The razor blade was double-stick taped to the top of a light stand and set up at sunset and shot with a Nikon F and, probably, a 35 or 28 mm lens. When I scanned it, I used Photoshop to remove the support in the middle and enhance the sunset colors, other than that the image is pretty well as it was shot.
