Gary Ballard shot this professional photograph on the Sycuan Indian Reservation in 1992 with studio lighting and medium-format negative film. He later scanned the original film negative on a "drum-quality" dedicated Nikon 8000 ED film scanner in high-resolution 16-bit Adobe RGB at 205 megabytes at 6,848x5,238 pixels.
From 1989 to when the famous San Diego photographer switched to Nikon SLR digital cameras in 2002, Gary Ballard shot over 30,000 film negatives on Mamiya 6x4.5 and 6x7 format cameras for his Sycuan tribal archives.
