THE EDITOR
PHOTOGRAPHY plays a tremendously important role in this war, and our armed services are making full use of its many possibilities. But even though it is employed on all of our far-flung battle fronts, and also at home for purposes of training and information, only a relatively small number of photographers is needed to carry out this work.

R. G. S., Albion, Neb. What is the object of having two shutters on a Speed Graphic? ANSWER: Both shutters on a Speed Graphic serve useful purposes. The front shutter usually provides slow speeds (such as 1 sec. and ½ sec.) which are not available on the curtain shutter.

Dear Sir : Regarding your anonymous “Sun Bather” on page 42 of the May issue, probably many of your readers could supply an identical print of this subject. It is a “stock” 35 mm positive, sold, I think, by the National Art Service, New York, and taken by L. Willinger.

The dramatic sidelighting of an early morning sun and a backdrop of smoke from smudge pots make this shot doubly effective. It was taken at a demonstration of first aid under air-raid conditions.

Joseph Warren
"PHOTOGRAPHS are dynamite!” says Heinrich Hoffman, Hitler’s private photographer. “We must use them, but they must never be used against us!” Having made excellent use of photography for propaganda and combat purposes, the Nazis now realize that the camera has become a dangerous weapon in the hands of their foes.

CORPORAL JOE DOE
EVERY SO often I have to steal a quick glance at the stripes adorning my sleeve as a reminder that I’m in the Army now and not back on the Keokuk Tribune covering the afternoon trick. The feel of a Speed Graphic over my shoulder as I leave photographic headquarters for a shot of evening drill at the parade ground is so familiar that I might be swinging out the Tribune’s front door on a fire assignment.

SURPRISINGLY few amateur pictures appear in Look, in spite of the large number submitted monthly. Out of several thousand not more than 12, on the average, can be used. This is not because Look isn’t interested in the work of amateurs. On the contrary, like every other picture magazine, we are intensely interested in amateur work because we are constantly on the lookout for new sources of good pictures.

YOU don’t need rare and unusual flowers to get good plant pictures. Even the lowly weed, when it is handled dramatically, can make a striking photograph. The pictures shown here were taken on an assignment to make a series on common farm weeds.

MAKING FACES

LOUIS HOCHMAN
TRY making faces for the camera—using the every-day objects in your home. There’s a thrill in discovering that you can make a funny face, or a caricature of a person, out of a few ordinary pots and pans. Ideal props are rims from glasses or eyes from a broken doll—they seem to make a face of anything.

PICTURES that have an emotional appeal for everyone who sees them don’t just happen. You can come across a picture setup by chance, or you can resort to careful planning. Either way, to recognize the makings of a picture is the result of training.

S. J. RESSETAR
FROM the time you first study the image in your finder until you finally trip the shutter, you must do three things. First, you have to decide what is to be the center of interest. Next, you must try to exclude all irrelevant items, showing only those which help the composition.

KEEP YOUR PRINTS FROM CURLING

SIGMUND SAMETH
DO your prints sometimes look as though they had just come out of a mailing tube? When you show them to your friends, does it take both hands to unroll them like a scroll? Do they curl up as soon as they are dry? Well, don’t give up hope. You can make prints that will stay flat, and flatten old, curled ones permanently.

GET DEPTH IN OUTDOOR SCENES

HENRY LEFEBVRE
YOU can make your scenic pictures much more interesting by using a few simple tricks to give them an appearance of greater depth. Foreground figures, properly placed, will create a third-dimensional effect. A number of similar objects, diminishing in size as they get farther from the camera, provide a fine means of bringing out perspective.

HUNTING WILDLIFE With Your Camera

CHARLES W. SCHWARTZ
WILDLIFE photography is a real challenge to the camera owner. It requires a lot of hard work and ingenuity, but it offers handsome dividends in the form of unusual and interesting pictures. Because I had to get my experience the hard way—by trial and error—perhaps I can give amateur photographers a few tips which will help them to get those rare pictures of wild animals and birds.

DON D. NIBBELINK
HOW would you like to make a dramatic picture from a negative which heretofore has yielded just an ordinary photograph? Flashing is the answer. Capable of many variations, this process consists of accurately darkening designated areas of a print for special effects.

CLAUDE W. CADARETTE
ANY good movie, whether amateur or professional, tells a story. It does this so smoothly that no mental effort on the part of the audience is required. This narrative or story-telling quality is known as continuity, and it can be put into your own home movies without much trouble.

JOE STOUT
YOU can pick up a lot of good filming ideas in a very pleasant way— by going to the movies. The pictures you see in your local theater are filmed by top-notch cameramen, with the aid of dozens of expert technicians. There is much you can learn from them, if you don’t become so engrossed in the story of the picture that you forget to notice how it is filmed.

JOHN CHAPMAN
TOUGH problems are continually popping up for the Hollywood cinematographer, and it’s not only the actors who keep him busy. Set designers, directors, and writers all create limitations within which he must work. Sometimes the solution is a simple one which the amateur can employ when faced with similar difficulties.

Keeps Formula Book Clean

N. Y.
MANY photographers mix various solutions according to formulas in text-books or other reference volumes. After some use of this sort, the pages of a book can become badly stained with chemicals which have splashed or dropped upon them. Furthermore, it is sometimes a problem to keep the book open at the desired place without laying something across it which may cover up part of the formula being used. An easy way to protect a formulary and at the same time keep it open at the desired place is to turn to the right page and then lay a sheet of clear glass over the open pages.

SEVERAL of the latest types of enlargers are equipped with small focusing targets which are projected along with the negative. These provide an easy means of accurate focusing. In order to add a similar feature to my own enlarger, which has a metal negative carrier, I made saw-cuts on opposite sides of the opening through the metal mask.

Table Supports Glass for Lighting from Below

[no value]
Roger Johnston
WITH the increasing interest in tabletop photography and paper negative work, many amateurs find occasions when they want to illuminate a setup or a big negative from below. This usually requires some sort of makeshift to hold a sheet of glass on which the subject is placed above the light source. A quick and easy method is illustrated in the accompanying photo. Just open the dining-room table as though you were going to add an extra leaf or two and then place a sheet of glass above the opening as shown.

THERE are many times when it is advantageous to take pictures from a high angle, in order to shoot over the heads of spectators or to photograph something that cannot be seen from an ordinary height. An automobile top makes a handy place from which to shoot, if you can get secure footing without damaging the surface of the car.

Pilot Light for Reading Enlarger Aperture Stops

Carl Swanson
NEARLY every photographer has some difficulty in reading the lens diaphragm stops on the barrel of the enlarging lens during use. About the only accurate way to do this in the darkroom is to remove the lensboard and hold the lens barrel up to the safelight until the figures become legible.

William Swallow
YOU can make a very efficient substitute for opal glass for use in a home-made enlarger or to replace a sheet which has become broken. Simply put three teaspoons of Epsom salts in 6 oz. of warm water to which a teaspoon of mucilage has been added.

Measure for Closeup Work

Sydney Oxberry
A HANDY aid for accurate focusing in closeup work and tabletop photography can be made from two pieces of narrow plain wood framing (or two lengths of 1" pine stock) and a couple of strips of tin. The combination, as shown, forms a “slide-stick” which is accurate and easy to use where a tape measure or yardstick might not be.

ORDINARILY we should regard “special methods” as something to be used in infrequent emergencies, but in photography special methods are almost the normal methods. Normal photography as distinct from special photography is confined quite largely to the casual snapshooting of the beginner.
