Bob Schwalberg
For many of us at Photokina the most impressive display of pictures was the retrospective exhibit of Dr. Erich Saloman’s candid existing-light reportage of the twenties and early thirties. These pictures represent a level of achievement in photojournalism which has, perhaps been equaled but surely not surpassed.

As you read this item, it will be a couple of weeks past the closing date for the 1957 High-School Photo Contest. But as we write it, entries are still arriving at a great rate, and response promises to be heavier than last year. It should be, too, with the added incentive of eight $100 merchandise awards to the school camera clubs to which the top winners belong.

THE CASE FOR TWO CAMERAS
One camera can't do everything needs at least two... the well-equipped photographer

[no value]
Do these complaints sound familiar? Almost every photographer, amateur or professional, has found himself in a situation where his camera was not always suitable for the subject. Modern cameras are extremely versatile but no one camera can do everything equally well, a fact responsible for the existence of so many different types of cameras on the market.

I have always been interested in teaching photography, a subject that requires special techniques and methods for explaining its fundamentals. During the last war, I helped teach many of my fellow soldiers how to become expert photographers and competent darkroom technicians.

Most of us who like to experiment with photograms make them in the time-honored way: We arrange one or several still objects on a sheet of printing paper and expose it under the enlarger light. But there's more than one way to skin a cat—or to make a photogram of one.

Photography, one of the more lively arts, thrives on controversy. Right now, one of the hottest arguments is between the “available lighters” and the “flashers”; between those who take their lighting as they find it and those who bring their lighting along.

You are flipping through a picture magazine when an image leaps from the page and rivets your hand and eye. You are speeding along a highway barricaded with billboards on either side for a distance of twenty miles when suddenly one photograph imprints itself on your consciousness and you find yourself thinking about it for the rest of the trip.

PICTURES FROM OUR READERS
This month’s offering is generously endowed— with the appeal of pretty girls and the fascination of reflections. These four slides, coming literally from the four corners of our country, bespeak the great variety of the color photographer’s enterprise: reflections of a California carnival crowd and of a vast expanse of Northwest grain; pictures of lovely young women in sun and shower. Enjoy them then, and learn from them. Find your own place, too, in the wide, wonderful color-slide world.

GLORIA GUNTHER, Woodland Hills, Calif. From the fantastic world of Disneyland comes this imaginative reflection shot. The mirror is at the top of a merry-goround there, and it reflects some of the crowd enjoying the spectacle. Mrs. Gunther, mother of three young children, has been a salon exhibitor and enjoys the challenge of creative color.

JOSEPH FOLDES
Let’s face it: we all make bad negatives, even the most experienced of us. And most of us give up a bad negative as a total loss, thereby frequently losing some of our best shots, because we either don't realize that they are salvable or just don’t want to take the time and trouble to rescue them.

Without moving your head, look at an object with your left eye. Now look at the same object with your right eye. There definitely was a difference in the area each eye saw. One saw more to the left, the other more to the right. Unless they are carefully adjusted to coincide, a camera lens and viewfinder see differently from their respective vantage points.

There was a time when the 35-mm user faced a sort of Hobson’s choice when getting a camera. He could either take an ultra-deluxe model or an economy model. One had everything; the other, nothing but the bare essentials. Today’s photographer, however, has an amazing array of 35-mm cameras to choose from in the lower and medium-priced range which, for quality and convenience, approach and sometimes equal the most expensive cameras now on the market.

At the start of the current season, Oregon Camera Club took a big step forward by abolishing the "Best Ten” rating in its print shows. As any regular reader of this column might have suspected, this move has my hearty approval, and the reason I’m all for it is summed up in the words of Gerald H. Robinson, editor of Oregon’s monthly bulletin “Hypo Drippings.”

For a long time men have felt that the world of motion-picture photography was their own exclusive province and resented and resisted any intrusion by members of the opposite sex. Today, more and more women are finding that movie-making is not wholly sacred to their entry and that womenly intuition is often advantageous to a film.

Photographers making outdoor night shots can help safeguard against accidents by coating the back of flash reflectors with bright silver-colored paint, then adding small strips of red or white luminous or reflecting tape. The tape, which also can be applied to tripod legs, flash guns, and other accessories, is inexpensive, and usually can be purchased in hardware stores and shops that sell automobile accessories.
