In the 16-page Photo Tips section of the March issue there is a test for hypo strength (on page 127) which is incorrect. You state that ten grains of potassium iodide are mixed with three ounces of water; later you refer to this as a ten-percent solution.

I was assigned to cover a junior college dance, sponsored by two of the school’s sororities (my first big chance, I thought at the time). My job was to take pictures of the entertainment, sorority officials, and attending couples. I set up my camera, with flashgun, on a tripod and carefully checked focus, shutter speed, and set the flash synchronization on X for the midget bulbs I was planning to use.

All-glass Flash Lamp. A new approach to cost reduction in the manufacture of photoflash lamps has been worked out by Philips of Eindhoven (The Netherlands) in the form of a "capless" flashbulb— Philips Photoflux PF1. The bulb lacks the usual metal base; the lead-in wires are extended outside of the sealed glass bottom of the bulb and folded back under a fibre ring.

In shooting stereo we have been told, again and again, to strive for pictures that are sharp. We get into the habit of trying to show everything crisp and clear, all the way from near foreground to the distant horizon. We make a fetish of avoiding blur in our pictures.

David B. Eisendrath
Despite your recommendations on photographing stained-glass windows in a recent column, I am having difficulty in photographing our church windows because of the large range of contrasts. When I take exposure-meter readings I find that the dark blues and reds require exposures of 1/10 sec at f/3.5, whereas the lighter blues and yellows call for only 1/150 sec at the same aperture.

BOB SCHWALBERG
NEWEST comer in the high-speed color sweepstakes is Anscochrome, a brand-new daylight color film with a nominal speed index of 32 for use with exposure meters calibrated in the ASA system. Arriving hard on the heels of Eastman’s E-2 Ektachrome, the Ansco standard bearer carries the same manufacturer’s speed rating and, like E-2 Ektachrome, can be pushed at least two stops further without unduly affecting transparency quality when special processing is given.

IF YOU ever had the chance to watch Raymond Martin, director of the Ira Hill Studio, New York, shoot pictures at a top-society wedding, you would be impressed by the speed and the smoothness with which he operates. One of the most successful bridal photographers in the country, Martin has been taking candid photographs at weddings since candid wedding photography first became fashionable.

BRUCE DAVIDSON
HIGH-SPEED films and new fast developers now allow amateurs (even those owning slow lenses) to take available-light pictures at weddings. Besides being able to work more quickly than if he were using flash, the available-light photographer can also remain unobtrusive and not disturb the ceremony or merrymaking with bursts of flashlight.

JOSEPHINE VON MIKLOS
IF YOU'RE MORE than a casual snapshooter, you've probably given a lot of thought to light, natural and artificial, and how it falls on a subject, and how its quality as well as its quantity influences the picture you get. Perhaps you've always wanted to make a series of tests to demonstrate these things to yourself.

CARLTON BROWN
EVER since Hy Peskin crashed the big-time magazines ten years ago, with the first fast-action color shots ever taken, he has been the pace-setter of the field at achieving the "impossible" with a camera. Before that, in his nine years on the staff of the New York Daily Mirror, he brought about a one-man revolution in newspaper sports photography, by shooting plays and utilizing angles that had previously been ignored.

LIGHT is the blood stream of photography. It is the effect of light on photosensitive emulsions that makes photographs possible. Men and women with cameras are either light’s slaves or its masters. Some—the devotees of available light, for example—take it as it is without manipulations of any kind.

RUSS HALFORD
GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE at anything, you can usually make an improvement. That’s as true in photoggraphy as in any other line of work. Take portraiture, for instance. Have you had the experience of making an appointment to photograph somebody, getting everything ready, making all the preparations, and then finding as you shoot that you don’t know as much as you should about the face in front of the lens?

In addition to having an unusually good time, you’ll learn something about the ways of birds, about nature, camera handling, lighting, composition, and—to a considerable degree—patience.

JOSEPH FOLDES
THE EASY WAY to make a good print is to start with a good negative, yet most of us tend to forget the importance of negatives because we think and talk in terms of pictures most of the time. True, pictures are the final result of our photographic efforts: we show, discuss, exhibit, and sometimes sell them.

Austria: All equipment is available but expensive. Good developing everywhere, but no color film or color developing. Belgium: Black-and-white still and movie films are available in Belgium at about the same prices as in the U.S. Gevacolor negative or positive film costs BF.65.00 for 120 or 620 roll, developing (costs BF.40.00) of color film takes at least one month, of black and white 24 hours.

A rubber mat (made from the type of material primarily intended for use on the floor of a car) cemented to the bottom of an enlarging easel will help to hold the easel steady on the enlarger base. It serves to protect from slipping and change of position which sometimes can be caused by an accidental touch on the easel.

For photographers who have occasion to carry heavy, unwieldy photographic equipment for appreciable distances, naturalists employed at Yosemite National Park have devised a method that reduces the transportation problem. A surplus-stock Army packboard was used as a base on which they constructed a box, made of ¼-inch plywood and Masonite.

Every child an actor
Children are natural imitators and if they are understood and properly guided they can help you make fine motion picture films
[no value]
[no value]
RALPH NELSON
EVERY CHILD can act, and most of them do it well. It is simple enough to prove, just take a few minutes and watch your own kids or any group of kids at play. They imitate, they create dramas, and best of all, they play "themselves." In most home movies, however, this naturalness, aliveness, and spirit of youth never gets across to the audience, because the photographer just points his camera and says "act" instead of figuring out what he wanted to do, and how he was going to do it.
