This month, the New York Flower Show makes its somewhat annual appearance. (It opened in New York in 1900 and was a perennial until the '60s. It resumed in 1984. Sponsored by the Horticultural Society of New York, this event takes place on Manhattan's Pier 90, located at West 55th Street.

Larry Sribnick
On September 27, 1985, Hurricane Gloria hit Long Island, N.Y., leaving me without electricity for one week. Although I still had water, no electricity meant no darkroom. Or did it? I remembered that the new Daylab 300 self-contained darkroom, enlarger, and print processor operates on 12 volts as well as 117 volts.

Make Multiple-image Photographs

Ralph M. Hattersley
One of the best places to gather subjects for multiple-image photographs is in an art museum. The idea is to combine your photographs with paintings and sculptures in the form of photographic montages. The technique employs intentional double exposures.

Professional photographers learn to operate under pressure. Their time costs clients money, so there is little tolerance for photographers who dally over equipment or can’t make up their mind about a shot. The pro photographer's vision and direction must always be clear and decisive.

The Nikon N2000 offers the options and advantages of a 35-mm SLR camera in an easy-to-use form. The camera has three auto-exposure modes plus metered-manual. The simplest operation is offered by the “P” (programmed) mode, wherein the camera makes all the shutter-speed and f-stop decisions.

Measurements are taken at 11 light levels, from very dim (EV 5 at ISO 100) to very bright (EV 15 at ISO 100). Results shown are for standard program mode. Other AE modes gave similar results; manual mode was within the strict ANSI standards in all tests.

Norman Goldberg
New SLRs tend to show many signs of their heritage, with the wind system taken from one previous model, the mirror system from another, and so forth. But the Nikon N2000 breaks away from this pattern. This camera is a truly new effort in many ways.

One of the best remedies for getting out of a photographic rut is to give yourself a theme to shoot. One that offers seemingly endless possibilities is reflections. On car bumpers, office windows, sunglasses, faucet handles, lakes, coffee mugs, and mirrored walls, reflections abound.

The Olympus Infinity is a totally automatic camera that handles several functions in new and unusual ways. For example, two cells below the lens measure the light falling on the subject. One reads the entire scene, the other a small central area, which is approximately indicated by the autofocus brackets in the viewfinder.

Until now, the monorail view camera has been a masterpiece of mechanical and optical perfection dedicated to producing the world’s dullest photographs. No other camera style can match the monorail’s twisting, tilting, shifting gymnastics, or rival the limitless versatility of its modular construction.

Robert Frank is most famous for his book, The Americans, consisting of 83 gritty black-and-white photographs taken 30 years ago and a film made four years later that were both acclaimed and condemned by critics, curators, and his fellow photographers.

Creative Angles and Trick Shots

Peter Utz
True or false: A good photographer makes a good videographer. Answer: Half true, but it was a trick question. About half the rules that a photographer learns about camera angles and picture composition can apply directly to video. But video is fuzzier, it moves, and it’s always displayed in a 3:4-shaped box.

Elinor H. Stecker
“Videomovies” is an increasingly popular term. It no longer refers exclusively to motion pictures transferred to videotape, but now includes the images that home users can make with a video camera. Until very recently, video equipment has been somewhat cumbersome, with bulky recorders attached to cameras by unwieldy electronic umbilical cords.

Miriam Berkley
Chicago is a generous city for those wanting either to create or to view photographs. Its photogenic character owes much to a plethora of architectural styles, as well as to a population unusually heterogeneous in terms of race, ethnicity, age, and wealth.

Carl Purcell
The nightmare of any photographer on an extended journey is losing his camera bag. Even worse is losing the exposed film from that once-in-a-lifetime trip. This is exactly what happened to me recently in England at Heathrow airport. I had been in East Africa for three weeks, and in Greece for 10 days; now I was en route to Spain.

Norman Rothschild
Don’t expect that because color-negative film has more exposure latitude than color-slide film, any exposure you use will give good results. It's also not true that labs can always make perfect color prints with negatives that were shot with the wrong filters or wrong lighting.

In the continuing evolution of the 35-mm SLR, it may seem that automation has solved all photographic difficulties. Loading film and setting its correct speed are no longer annoying tasks in many new models. Focus automation is nearly standard on non-SLR 35-mm cameras, and the success of Minolta’s Maxxum may soon lead to autofocus as standard on many other SLRs.

I don't want to rattle the chair you are sitting in, but did it ever occur to you that you could save considerable money and time by careful use of one or more suitable magnifiers? For example, just by examining your contact sheets with a moderate-power magnifier (preferably in the 3-6X range), you can zero-in fast on the frames you want to print.

I am compulsive about collecting photographic books. They range from little jewels like English Sunrise to oversize coffee-table retrospectives. Although they've never been evaluated for their monetary worth, these books are visual treasures to be enjoyed, with new revelations to be discovered when looking through them for the second, third, and fourth time.

I was overjoyed to read the article in your April 1985 issue on lens extenders. But where can I get a 2X extender for my old Exakta VX 500 SLR 35? I have not been able to buy it in my one-camera-store town. F. Wehmann, Newton, N.J. One source we know of is Seymour's Exakta Corp., 47 Seventh Ave., New York, N. Y 10011.
