Commentary
Raging inferno on carrier’s deck: Crewmen battle the gasoline-fed flames on the flight deck of the carrier Saratoga, following hits by the Japanese while operating off Iwo Jima, February 21. In the center are the twisted remains of one of the vessel’s planes. Flight operations were resumed after the flames were extinguished. The ship returned to the Puget Sound Navy Yard, Bremerton, Washington, where her damage was repaired.

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.
