-Chapter I. Introduction
Frequently we have been requested by mail to give our method or rule for making the different lightings, as we have practiced them for years past. This, we feel sure, our readers will understand is a ...
-Chapter II. "Plain Lighting."
Plain or broad lighting is the broad side of the face photographed in light. That is: there is more of the face in light than in shadow, as can be seen by referring to our illustration. For conve...
-Chapter III. Notes On Plain Lighting
In a properly made plain lighting there should be strong, snappy high lights, and the shadows should be soft and silky, but not flat and lifeless. When I have a class in this lighting I point out to t...
-Chapter IV. Rembrandt Lighting
The Rembrandt lighting, as it is known to photographers since its first introduction, has been a favorite of ours. When it is properly made, photographically speaking, it is one of the most striking ...
-Chapter V. Plain And Rembrandt Lightings In An Ideal Operating Room
In the foregoing chapters we have tried to treat in a practical way with the conditions as they come up every day in the average studio. It is a well known and admitted fact that the average operating...
-Plain And Rembrandt Lightings In An Ideal Operating Room. Continued
Figure No. 2. Lighting in an Ideal Operating Room. On the other hand were we to place this high light on the temple, we would lose the roundness we are working for from another source. This time ther...
-Chapter VI. Half Shadow Or Sarony Lighting
This is an effect in lighting that is of a most pleasing nature. There are few subjects, indeed, of which it can be made, first, for the reason that it requires a good profile; and, second, the face s...
-Chapter VII. Hetherington Or "Whole Shadow Lighting."
The first description ever given, so far as we know, of this particular style of lighting was by Charlie Hetherington. We have for that reason given it his name. Some operators, however, call it whol...
-Chapter VIII. Line Lighting
In describing our method for making this style lighting we shall consume but very little space, as we have in previous chapters described our light and operating room. While we shall not be so long in...
-Chapter IX. The Effects Of Side, Top And Front Lights
For our subject in this chapter we have selected plain lighting, and it is our purpose to show a few errors into which a number of operators have fallen, and it seems next to impossible for them to ex...
-Chapter X. Lighting Black And White: Drapery
This is doubtless a subject that almost every operator will be interested in, and there is no question but that our draperies give us no little trouble, and especially the white. It seems to be the te...
-Chapter XI. A Few Suggestions On Posing And Lighting
In this chapter we have a subject to handle that is so wide in its scope that we almost hesitate to start on it. But nearly all who have read the Good Book know that passage which runs something like ...
-Chapter XII. Posing And Lighting
In Chapter XI (A Few Suggestions On Posing And Lighting) we gave our reasons for posing one subject, and in this chapter we will take another, and do the same. In both cases the subjects are examples ...
-Chapter XIII. Skylights, Single And Double Slants
In taking up this subject it is our desire to be understood as giving only our own experience in working the different lights which we shall mention. We do not intend writing of anything that we heard...
-Chapter XIV. Skylights And The Construction Of Them
The construction of a skylight is a subject that nearly every photographer has to consider at some period of his life, and nearly everyone has to face conditions that are different from all others. Th...
-Chapter XV. Snow Pictures
We have several times been asked how to make snow effects, that is, pictures so that the person will look as though they were in a hard snow fall. Choose a dark cloud ground and make the negative ju...
-Chapter XVI. Window Photography
These papers are prepared more especially for that class of workers known as the Amateurs. There are numbers throughout the country, who have invested quite a little amount in a camera and various acc...
-Chapter XVII. Curtaining Of the Window
The window used in making the illustrations for this article was of about the usual size found in parlors, three feet wide and six feet high, divided into two sashes, of one frame each. There is an op...
-Chapter XVIII. Plain Or Broad Lighting
We will suppose our window faces the north, and really a north window should be used, as the light is much more even and nearer the same intensity the whole day. For convenience sake, we will suppo...
-Chapter XIX. Rembrandt Lighting
To make Rembrandt lighting, begin right at the west edge of the window, and measure a line, running toward the center of the room and extending out just four feet. Place the chair at this point; place...
-Chapter XX. Front Shadow, Or Sarony Lighting
To get this effect, measure five feet toward the center of the room, starting from the west side of the window, and place the chair at that point. Have the camera the same distance from the light, a...
-Chapter XXI. All Shadow, or Hetherington Lighting
This effect is secured by measuring from the west end of the window a line running out five feet, and then back from this line toward the west, one foot. Place the chair at that point and the camera...
-Chapter XXII. Line Lighting
This is a novel effect in lighting, and especially hard to get and can only be obtained after repeated trials, so don't become discouraged after the first trial. To secure it, place the background ...
-Chapter XXIII. Dark-Room Work
We wish it understood that we are not advertising any particular brand of plates, but what we shall do is to try and give you an insight into the developing and manipulation of all brands of plates, a...
-Chapter XXIV. Hints And Suggestions
It seems that there is quite a lot of trouble caused by negatives turning too yellow or green. This can be caused by several things, and we will mention a few of them. If the sulphite used in the deve...
