Commentary
A U.S. Navy task force blasting away at Japanese bases in the Marianas got this Japanese bomber known as the “Betty” type. Lowering storm clouds are met by a rising pyre of smoke that marks the end of the enemy plane. During the task forces’ visit near Saipan on February 22, 1944, 14 enemy planes were downed in a 11-hour attack on the U.S. Navy’s force, March 1944.

Technique
Ferrotyped prints are processed in such a way that they are shiny. The print has a sensitive surface, usually thinner, because it was put through a press while still wet.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
