Thank you for the publicity given our client, C. P. Goerz American Optical Company, on their Vertoscope Viewer in your July issue. However, through some oversight the cost was shown as $7.50. Actually the list price should have read $750.

Some months ago you told about firms that would blow-up transparencies to 4×5 or larger. What degree of resolution can be expected in such enlargements? How satisfactory are they?—R.C.McC., Kalamazoo, Michigan. The degree of resolution in an enlarged transparency depends very much on the original material and what it is being enlarged upon.

Bob Schwalberg
It really hasn’t been very many years since the editors of photo magazines were asking: "Is 35-mm here to stay?" and answering, ". . . Well . . . maybe . . . if . . . but . . ." Last August, in the first of our two special 35-mm issues, the proprietors of this journal sounded a more timely note when they empaneled a group of six outstanding professionals to answer this question: “Can 35-mm Do Everything?"

This month's charge is directed for the most part to those who make black-andwhite prints. Look around you, folks, and tell me whether or not you notice a falling-off of interest and participation in good print-making. I notice it. And others report having noticed it.

GEORGE B. WRIGHT
Somewhere there may be an amateur who has never said, "Photography is an expensive hobby!" But it is an open secret that many amateurs can add, "—and a very profitable hobby, too!” Photography is the largest of the "active" hobbies (the stamp collectors outnumber us) and there are many thousands across the country who make their cameras pay off.

WE ASKED THE PROS
[no value]
Do you feel a photographer should develop and print his own pictures?
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Very definitely. Any photographer who wants to master the medium should develop and print his own pictures. Only then will he have a knowledge of what negatives and paper will do. Too often, photographers want to produce masterpieces from the moment they first pick up a camera.

It goes almost without saying that if you would be a good photographer you must know your camera—know it so thoroughly that it is as familiar to you as your own hands. You should not only know where the controls are and what they do, but you should be able to manipulate them under stress and in the dark without having to stop and think about it.

The obvious way to take a picture is to aim the camera at the subject, head-on, and shoot. It’s also, sometimes, the surest way to get a static, uninteresting picture, totally lacking in strength or excitement. On the other hand, even the most commonplace subject matter can take on life and power when approached from an unusual angle.

The candid camera is a device for clipping “stills” out of the vast and endless movie of man’s life. In the hands of a skillful photographer it succeeds in getting the most vivid and revealing instants down on film. Most activity consists of a series of high points separated by arid stretches that contribute nothing toward visual understanding of the situation.

The camera, being such an honest instrument, sees and records all that comes before it. By itself, it will not omit distracting elements in a composition, or sort out the elements in a picture and put them in meaningful order. That is purely the function of the photographer, and his success can be measured largely by his skill in selecting, simplifying, and organizing the chaos of his subject matter.

Photojournalism is one of the few aspects of photography not adequately covered in books. The would-be professional, eager to bone up on his chosen profession, has had slim pickings indeed: John Whiting’s stimulating (but now outdated and out-of-print) Photography Is a Language, Wilson Hicks’ Words and Pictures for a broad philosophical background with heavy emphasis on Life problems and policies, market guides, and odds and ends in books on other subjects.
