Studio Light Incorporating The Aristo Eagle - The Artura Bulletin 1919 | by Aristo Motto



Film has decided advantages over plates in almost every branch of photographic work, but in none is the advantage more marked than in flash-light work. The day has passed when photographers will depend entirely upon daylight, just as the day has passed when portraiture of the better sort is entirely a matter of studio sittings. Practically every successful home portrait photographer is also a successful studio photographer, and many of these have found a simple and compact form of flash-light apparatus especially convenient for home portraiture as well as for dull-day studio sittings.
