Most of the shoot was done in black and white, but it includes a number of color shots — some, like this one, that were taken in a studio. In the introduction to the book, McCullin writes, "I used Ektachrome, and Ringo's chrome yellow shirt jumped out of the blue of his suit. I turned on a wind machine. It was chaotic. I'm not a studio photographer; I'm a battlefield photographer. I knew how to deal with certain kinds of photographic calamaties, but not on this scale."
