I suggest to those lucky people who have removable lenses to attempt a picture through a pair of binoculars alone, without lenses between the eyepiece and focal plane. Vignetting worries are ended, and there is a slight increase in transmitted light.

In what must be regarded as a decision of great importance, the United States Circuit Court of Appeals struck a telling blow in favor of freedom from censorship of publications and pictures by the Post Office Department. Long before this decision was made, we devoted a column to the problems involved in sending pictures of nudes through the mails.

The following formulas and techniques are recommended for the selective reduction of the individual dye layers in Anscochrome film transparencies. They perform equally well with Ansco Printon and Ansco Color Duplicating Films. These formulas may be used individually, to reduce the density of a particular dye layer or they may also be used successively to reduce all dye layers, as is necessary in correcting for underexposure.

Bob Schwalberg
This month POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY inaugurates a new monthly section designed to keep you abreast of the exciting new developments which are constantly occurring in 35-mm photography with calendarlike regularity. Year by year, the 35-mm camera has gained in popularity among photographers of every stripe from Sunday snapshotters to critical laboratory workers until its position as the most widely used camera format appears assured, if it is not already a fact.

ARTHUR BARNEY
BECAUSE of his camera’s huge negative capacity the 35-mm man enjoys a freedom in shooting unknown to users of larger cameras. With a full 36-exposure magazine in his camera, and maybe a spare in his pocket, the 35-mm man is able to make more pictures with less danger of being caught without a negative in his camera.

In the last seven or eight years, since the beginning of the new resurgence in available-light photography, no gripe has been louder or more persistent than the 35-mm man’s plea for really fast wide-angle lenses. Long accustomed to the ease and convenience of f/1.5 and ƒ/2 lenses in two of his three most important focal lengths, the standard-focus 50-mm lens and the medium-long-focus 85-go-mm lenses, the lagging lens speed of the wide-angle, pegged to a maximum of f/2.5 or ƒ/2.8, was a constant irritant.

THE EDITORS
AS A result of Stalin's death and the slow disintegration of the Iron Curtain, the editors of POPULAR PHOTOGRAPHY have been able to piece together a reasonably coherent picture of the state of photography in Soviet Russia today. Our information is largely based on a report undertaken at our direction by Michael Stillman, a Russian-speaking American businessman and photographer who questioned Soviet amateurs and cultural officials on a recent trip to Moscow and Leningrad.

IF YOU’VE taken any pictures of flowers at all, chances are they were made outdoors. And since that’s where most flowers grow, it seems a perfectly natural place. But were you always completely satisfied with the results? Was the bushy foliage in the background distracting and obtrusive?

How important is a background to a picture? The answer to this question is obvious to anyone who can remember a picture of someone with a telephone pole sticking out of the top of his head. Backgrounds are extremely important, especially so when shooting in color.

Loosening Lens Hood
A heavy rubber band will prove very helpful on those occasions when a lens hood sticks stubbornly as you're trying to twist it apart to insert filter or supplementary lens. Looped tightly around the smaller portion of the lens hood, as illustrated here, the rubber provides a firm, slip-proof hold for loosening the metal—supplying the same advantage as when this method is used to unscrew a lid that sticks on a glass jar.—A. M. Wettach, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.

The relatively high ratio of enlargement generally used for 35-mm negatives makes avoidance of scratches particularly important. Danger of scratching when drawing strip through carrier can be minimized as follows: With rubber cement or other suitable adhesive, affix two sections of transparent negative sleeve to lower plate of carrier. Sleeves can be slit along one edge for easy insertion of strip or left intact to serve as guide.—H. Reinstein, Winthrop, Mass. Little bags of soft cloth, designed to hold pipes, make excellent containers for filters, cable releases and other small accessories that usually are hard to locate in a gadget bag. Cable releases and synch cords, rolled loosely and inserted in one of these cloth bags, are protected from kinking or breakage, and other small items can be similarly protected. Available at stores which sell smokers' accessories, the bags are very inexpensive.—F. M. Wolfe, New York, N. Y.

Tripod Safety Lights
Two or three red reflectors (the kind used by bicycle riders as "tail lights") attached to the legs of your camera tripod, as shown in the accompanying photograph, will be an aid in minimizing the possibility of accident when taking pictures at night where there is automobile traffic. These little reflectors can be purchased at shops and counters which handle bicyclists' supplies; they are not expensive, and can be attached easily.— P. Lindemann. Larchmont, N. Y.
[no value]
Non-Skid Print Tongs
Print tongs, rested carefully on the edge of hypo or developer tray, frequently will slide into the solution, from which they have to be removed—often several times during an average printing session. This annoyance can be prevented by looping a couple of rubber bands around the handle of the tongs. The rubber acts as a sort of "collar" that will catch on the tray rim and hold tongs in place without slipping into solution.—George C. Graham, Pine Bluff, Ark.

Compared to modern lenses and films which can make pictures by the light of a match, most exposure meters are sunloving introverts, their needles peeping out shyly from below the zero mark whenever the light begins to fade. Under difficult available-light situations, where accurate control is a “must,” this inability of meters to register extremely low light intensities makes picture taking a matter of guesswork.
