Super close-up of Charlie and Scraps from “A Dog’s Life” 1918
Some might be wondering why I am posting the same photo twice?
I am posting one as a super close-up and the other showing the original photo. The reason is - Charlie Chaplin very seldom did close-ups in his films, most of his shots were long and medium…I find by cropping super tight you can get a really good look at his face make-up and his expressions. This only works if you have a high definition photo to work with
I also love how you can see some of his make up especially his heavily darkened eyebrows. His make-up was extrordinary, forced you to look right into his face.
