It is the ambition of every physician or surgeon, after he has once established a paying practice, to take a post graduate course and perfect himself in the finer and higher practices of his profession.

A post graduate course is, for him, an expensive proposition, and he must leave his practice and spend at least a year in time, and a good deal of money, in taking this course. Yet he knows it will pay big returns on his investment, and he will make many sacrifices to do it.

The expert, the man with a full working knowledge of all the latest improvements, all the new methods, certainly stands a much greater chance of success than the man depending solely upon the school of his own experience for his knowledge and ideas.

The man without the post graduate course has only himself for a teacher. The post graduate man has not only the benefit of his own experience, but the benefit of the experience of all the brightest minds in his profession as well.

If the ambitious physician can afford to sacrifice a year or more of his time, and the entailed financial cost, surely you of the photographic profession can well afford the short time necessary to take a post graduate course in your profession.

The Eastman School of Professional Photography is the college of expert post graduate information for the professional. Every moment of each day in the three-day course is devoted to sound, practical demonstrations of the most advanced ideas, and of all that is newest and best in the practice of professional photography.

The Eastman School is not a school for the novice. Its corps of instructors fully realize that each student has more than mastered the rudiments of the the profession, and that to make the school worth while, each moment must be devoted to instruction along the most advanced lines and must afford ideas that the already successful professional can turn into good, profitable dollars upon his return to his own studio. Let us consider for a moment the school program, as outlined for 1909:

10-12 a. m. - Lighting and Posing with Aristo Lamp.

1-2 P. m.. - Tank Development.

2-3 P. m. - Nepera Demonstration.

Third Day

10-10:30 a. m. - Aristo Printing Cabinet and proofing negatives made at the school.

10:30-11:30 a. m. - Talk on Retouching.

11:30-12 M. - Nepera Demonstrations with school negatives.

1-2 P. m. - Sepia tones on Nepera by Re-development.

2-3 P. M. - Ozobrome Demonstration.

3-4 P. M. - Printing Room Dodges. Devices and Ideas. Illustrated talks.

The first two hours of the opening session are devoted to Lighting and Posing with the Aristo Lamp. There are several thousand Aristo Lamps in use - you may be using one successfully, and feel that you need no instruction on this subject. Again, you may not be using one, and feel quite certain that you never will. In either event you have here the opportunity to learn all about it, from nun who have not only successfully used the lamp according to their own ideas, but in addition have had the advantage of seeing how other professionals all over the country have used it. In other words you have the combined experience of every professional using the lamp, at your service. Out of the three-day session, three and one-half hours are devoted to the various uses of the lamp, including lighting and posing, with test sittings, and the making of prints.

Then there is Tank Development, a topic of absorbing interest to every one of you. True enough, the tank is simplicity itself, but do you wish to know just how to produce a certain quality of negative - just how to acquire less density, greater density, more or less contrast - just how to do the many little things that only experience can teach? All this is at your service, and told in such a way you just have to remember it.

The Nepera Demonstrations alone will be worth every effort you have made to attend the school. Can I successfully use- a developing out paper for portraiture? is an absorbing question with the profession. At the Eastman School you will find this question most fully and satisfactorily answered - not alone by lectures but by practical demonstration as well.

The quality of negatives best suited for Nepera, and how to produce them, all the finer stunts in printing and mounting, the production of rich sepias by redevelopment, every possible question answered by demonstration.

Then there are demonstrations on Aristo Carbon Sepia, Ozo-brome, Angelo Platinum, and a special demonstration on the new Standard Polychrome plate - a plate of marvelous possibilities under the light.

Demonstrations of enlarging with both Bromide and Nepera papers, the proper apparatus to use, and all about producing ordinary and extraordinary results. A talk on Retouching, one on Printing Room Dodges and Devices and Ideas.

The Eastman School of Professional Photography affords the ideal post graduate course for the professional eager to be classed among the leaders.

Long experience in the school work has enabled the instructors to make every minute count. so that in three one-day sessions the course is complete.

You cannot afford to miss the Eastman School. It takes but three days of your time, and will be worth a hundred fold the time and money you have expended to attend. Look over the school datings on page 24, and plan now to attend.
