GEORGE HURRELL
THE most important thing in photography for me is that I have fun with my camera. That, in photograply as well as in athletics, is the difference between the pro and the amateur. The pro is in it to make his coffee and cakes, with whipped cream if he can.

KENT SAGENDORPH
POLICE organizations lately have been discovering uses for miniature cameras which not even the most enthusiastic amateur owner ever thought of. In the hands of an expert, a 35 mm camera is almost a complete crime laboratory. Now, for the first time in any popular magazine, expert tips on the use of a miniature camera in police work are revealed.

STRONG, specially-bred carrier pigeons are filling a supplementary role as aerial photographers in the German army. Amazingly small, light aluminum cameras are attached to the pigeons. A delayed-action shutter release permits the keepers to set the camera for an estimated time ahead when the pigeon will be flying over the photographic objective.

WILLIAM LANGDON
YOU have heard of people who couldn’t see the forest because of the trees, haven’t you? Many photographers find themselves unwittingly in such a position. They are so close to their everyday surroundings and have become so familiar with them, that they ignore immediate picture possibilities while they dream of the great pictures they could make in far-off places.

PORTRAITS WITH A MINIATURE
In the author's opinion, the miniature camera offers greater opportunities for truly fine portraiture than the more commonly used large studio cameras. He predicts that it will become the future universal camera.

ROMAN FREULICH
AT the risk of assuming the precarious position of being out at the very end of a limb, I want to predict that the miniature camera will become the supreme instrument of portrait photography in the extremely near future. I should like to predict also that the professional photographer who hews to his line of huge and “impressive,” but very cumbersome, equipment will soon find himself on the other side of the fence, wondering how the amateurs, on whom he looked with scorn, had turned the tables on him.

JACK JOHNSON
AMERICA’S oldest art colony, Provincetown, Mass., no longer regards the photograph with professional scorn. The term “photographic”—a label that branded a painting, water-color, etching, or block print as being outside the realm of pure art—now is obsolete.

MOONLIGHT photography is generally not taken too seriously by the stable-minded amateur. In spite of this, though, it offers an interesting diversion and a number of intriguing effects may be achieved. Materials for night work are the same as for photography in the daytime.

WITH the advancement of photography and the introduction of the miniature camera, there has come a new trend in the art of interior decoration that is within the reach of every amateur. The “bric-a-brac photomural” is one phase of this trend.

WOMAN'S PLACE in Photography

MILDRED STAGG
IN photography, as in most other walks of life, the woman of today is rapidly establishing herself as the equal of man—intellectually, artistically, and technically. Her battle, and it has been a battle, was not an easy one. She has had to overcome centuries of prejudice built up in the masculine mind when woman’s place was definitely in the home.

WALTER E. BURTON
BEFORE you shoot very many pictures, you will discover that there are some shots you cannot make simply by pointing the camera at the subject and pressing the trigger. A tall building is an example. If you photograph it in the usual way, you will get a picture in which the building appears to be falling over backward.

PAUL HADLEY
ADVANCED pictorialists often resort to the use of texture screens to give their work added character. By the use of the texture “negatives” prints can be made to resemble etchings, charcoal drawings, paintings on canvas, or given some other special effect.

PHOTOGRAPHERS who have seen platinum prints will remember the distinctive appearance which is so strikingly different from a chloride or bromide print. The art of platinum printing today has almost been forgotten, particularly since the only manufacturer of such papers has closed his plant.

JOHN PAUL PENNEBAKER
IT all began years ago with an old Graflex and a yen to play with color. Out came the reflex mirror. In went a transparent mirror. A place to hold a third plate, in addition to a bipack, was built into the old camera. Little by little this improvised one-shot color camera taught me the difference between black-and-white and color photography.

G. G. M., Berkeley, Calif.—While your letter states that you purposely maneuvered your boat around so that the bridge span would cut across the background of your picture, the span might better have been omitted here. It distracts attention from the main subject by spoiling the pleasing simplicity you almost obtained.

E. B., Chicago, III. Is it highly important that each of two stereoscopic prints have the same tone? That is, does it matter if one is darker than the other? ANSWER: While some workers feel that it is important to have the two prints composing a stereoscopic pair identical in tone, others do not.

Dear Sir : . . . During my last visit to the New York World’s Fair, I was informed by one of the police officers on one of the avenues that movie cameras were not allowed. At the time I was using a Zeiss Ikonta B, bearing not the least resemblence to any home movie camera I ever saw.

RESPONDING to the demand for a wideangle lens for 8 mm Filmo cameras, Bell & Howell announce the Hyper Cinor Lens Attachment which serves two valuable purposes. It doubles the lens angle, so that the area photographed is twice as wiile and twice as long as with the normal lens, and also includes provision for focusing.

THE drying rack described will be found a helpful contrivance by the amateur who uses ferrotype tins for glazing prints. It will occupy a space measuring only 10¾ x 11 inches, which fact will eliminate the one disagreeable factor involved in drying prints by this method—namely, finding a place to set the tins where they will be safe from accident and yet where the prints will dry as speedily as possible.

THE jamming of film when it is being loaded into a developing tank reel has been particularly troublesome to me and probably to other amateurs as well. Although I experimented with several makes and types of reels, the difficulty still was apt to appear occasionally. There is a simple remedy, however, which has proven to be both practical and satisfactory.

Robert W. Roggenburk
WHEN filling a developing tank with solution it is necessary to measure the exact amount required by using either a fairly large graduate or a marked bottle. If too little solution is poured into the tank the top edge of the film will not receive processing, and if too much is used the solution will run over and be wasted.

MUCH has been written concerning the titling of amateur movies. However, the increased use of 35 mm color film as the basis for 2" x 2" color slides has created a need for titles in this field as well. There is no doubt that they would add interest to the projection.

—tiny invisible bubbles that form on printing papers during development can easily be eliminated by wiping them off the emulsion with a “swab.” Just take a piece of soft clean rag, wrap a few turns around one end of a stick, tie it, and the trick is done.

Improvised Funnel

BEER cans with a cone-shaped top and sealed with a bottle cap make excellent funnels. Using a rotary type can opener, the bottom of the can may be removed neatly and by inverting it one has a funnel into which it is easy to pour solutions and which holds 11 or 12 ounces at one time. Many of these cans are now coated with a waxy substance inside, which forms a moderately inert lining for acids, etc.

A Ferrotyping Trick
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
J. W. Denning
IT is sometimes difficult to make the edges of glossy prints stick to ferrotype tins, especially if the prints have been made on large-size double weight paper. I find that this is caused by the capillary action which draws the water back under the edges of the prints after the squeegee roller passes over them.

Dissolving Chemicals Quickly

IN preparing photographic solutions, much time can be saved by employing a glass tube with hollow rubber ball. After immersing the tube in the solution, squeeze the ball and release it until all of the chemicals are dissolved. This agitation of the liquid will hasten the preparation of the solution when you are in a hurry to get to work and time is at a premium.

P. L. Anderson
AN inexpensive and easy method for making effective titles for your home movies makes use of the white cardboard letters which can be bought at most large paint stores. Lay a roll of black crepe paper on the floor, placing the letters in position upon it, and you are ready to shoot your title.

Portrait Background

E. M. Feeney
A SUITABLE background for informal portraits can be made from a window shade. The green side is dark enough to make light hair and clothes show up, and also light enough for the reverse action. The cream side may be used the same way, therefore giving a change of background. The shade I used was purchased at the dime store for 50 cents.

Print Drying Hint
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
IN drying glossy prints on a ferrotype or chrome tin be careful always to roll the print in the same direction. Rolling a print first lengthwise and then crosswise causes a stress on the paper that is likely to result in a buckled print or cracked emulsion .—Duane Featherstonhaugh, Schenectady, N. Y.
