I read with great interest your article on Eastman Kodak’s new Tri-X film (December issue). I immediately purchased a roll for my Super Ikonta BX and rushed to the Ringling Brothers’ circus in nearby Tuscaloosa. There I rated the film at ASA 800 for this picture of the famous clown Emmet Kelly, whose sad figure was lighted only by the general illumination of the “big top.”

35-mm & Bantam Ektachrome. Shortly after the first of the year, Kodak’s fast new Ektachrome film which had been rumored about for ever so long made its debut on the market. The new color film, which produces positive color transparencies by reversal processing, comes in 20-exposure 35-mm magazines and in 8-exposure No. 828 (Bantam) rolls.

Robert L. Mclntyre
Big things have been happening in stereo for over two years. Most of them date back to May of 1952, when the tentative standard for camera apertures and stereo mounts was developed. It wasn’t really anything revolutionary. It recognized the existing picture aperture of the Stereo Realist camera, taking pictures 5 perforations wide on 35-mm film, and it established dimensions for placement of such a stereo pair in a mount for hand viewing.

Where there is no fast action, can we get more detail in a picture with an f/3.5 lens stopped down to, say f/22, than with a high-speed lens stopped down to f/22?— M. S., Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Here we have another puzzler that depends on so many variables that no set rule can be given.

George Chernoff

THE RIGHT of privacy is one of the most intriguing and troublesome problems in the law of photography. At least, so the volume of mail from our readers would indicate. Although we covered the subject of model releases and the right of privacy in general in the February, 1954 issue of PHOTOGRAPHY, new and different questions always appear in this field.

BOB SCHWALBERG
THE RECENT RELEASE of the new and very greatly improved Nikon S-2 camera emphasizes the tremendous progress that is being made throughout the effervescent Japanese photographic industry. Actually, the widespread acceptance of precision Japanese cameras dates back but a scant five years to that grim summer in 1950 when the Korean war erupted.

Although she has written three books, directed two films, and run a successful portrait studio, she considers her real profession being a mother, grandmother, and homemaker.

HOW DO YOU photograph a child? There are as many different approaches as there are children to be recorded or photographers to do the shooting. In the following 16 pages you’ll find the working methods of four successful photographers, two men and two women, who use flash, flood, and natural light.

GOOD PICTURES of children, pictures that capture the fragile, elusive beauty of the child’s own world, are made more with the heart than with the camera. In fact, the gadgets and paraphernalia of photographic technique can be worse than useless if they force the photographer to be an intruder rather than a quiet observer.

I ALWAYS use available light because I don’t want to destroy the existing mood, nor do I want to create something which wasn’t there to begin with. I like to see the scene merely as an observer—and without myself being observed.” This sums up Nell Dorr’s attitude towards lighting for indoor pictures of children.

DON NIBBELINK
REFLECTORLESS flash may be the answer to many of your indoor flash problems. It is the happy medium between direct and bounce flash. When used in an average size living room with light colored walls and ceiling, some light from a bare flashbulb travels directly to your subject while the rest of it is bounced in all directions.

MAKING STUDIO QUALITY portraits of children doesn’t require a forbidding array of professional lighting equipment. If you have a window (and who doesn’t?) , all you need is a couple of photofloods, and you’re in business. Backlighting is a “natural” for pictures of children, and backlighting is what you get when you pose a model before a window.

Two years before his tragic death in the Peruvian Andes in 1954, Swiss photographer Werner Bischof spent a year in the Far East, as a result of which he left behind him a picture legacy of considerable importance. His coverage of Japan produced a brilliant portrait of that remarkable country, which has now been put between the covers of a book published simultaneously by Simon & Schuster in New York, and Gonzett & Huber in Zurich.

NORMAN ROTHSCHILD
ONE of the fascinating aspects of the photographic hobby goes under the heading of “copying.” With a minimum of equipment, this technique can open up new horizons for you by making it possible to preserve old pictures of great historical or sentimental value; make a new negative when the original is lost; reproduce documents or drawings.

THE easiest cameras to use for copying are those with which the image can be composed and focused on a groundglass. These include (see left) press and view cameras, single-lens reflex types, and miniature cameras which can be fitted with reflex housings or groundglass attachments to aid in copying.

WHAT'S THE remedy if the material you want to copy is old and faded, or stained, or dirty? A cleaning or chemical treatment may be necessary to get the best possible copy. In any treatment of this type, there is danger that the original may be further damaged or even lost.

WHETHER TO USE a vertical or a horizontal setup depends on how much working area and how much equipment you have. The type of copying job may also affect your choice. With a limited working area a vertical setup (shown at right) can be the best.

FOR CONTINUOUS-TONE COPY. If the original material you’re copying consists of many shades of gray or color between its darkest and lightest parts, it is called continuous-tone material. The right film to use for this type of copy depends upon the characteristics of the original.

FOR CONTINUOUS-TONE COPY. Generally speaking, development in the solutions recommended by the film manufacturer, and at the times and temperatures indicated by them, will result in good tonal reproduction of the original. However, it is well to remember that the choice of developer can have a definite effect on the final results.

WHAT MAKES A MAN give up a comfortable, congenial, well-paid job with a promising future? It might be a doctor’s advice, or it might be the offer of an even more comfortable, better-paid job. In Gene Cook’s case it wasn’t either of these. He was happy where he was (as Life’s amusement editor) , and he’s even happier where he is now (in a brand-new sparkling white north-lighted studio atop Carnegie Hall, with a fresh-painted sign on the door: Gene Cook, photographer).

THE MERE CONCEPT of the new 40-mm, f/3.5 Makro-Kilar is exciting. A lens that will take normal, close-up, and wide-angle pictures without requiring supplementary attachments is, to say the least, a startling and almost unbelievable innovation.

Color filters serve two general purposes, either of which may help to make your black-and-white copy prints more effective—particularly if the original is in color. One type of filter changes the response of the film to reproduce colors as shades of gray which more nearly approximate the relative brightness of these colors as they appear to the human eye.
