There are people in your town who are going to buy photographs. Will they be stirred to immediate activity by the appearance of a newspaper advertisement over your studio name? If the copy is good a certain percentage will respond at once. The remainder will wait until it suits their convenience. When they do make up their minds to buy pictures where will they go? In nine cases out of ten to the studio impressed on their minds by the repeated appearance of advertisements.

Thus it will be seen that you cannot always trace the complete returns of an advertisement by immediate results. To secure the benefit of studio advertising keep your studio name constantly before the public and back it with good work.

Tank development for the professional photographer to obtain the finest gradation cannot be too highly recommended, inasmuch as the harmonious development of all middle tints and highlights in negatives are produced and harshness absolutely avoided. Outside of this, tank development saves a large amount of costly time, as it is only necessary to insert into the developer a desired lot of plates, which then automatically develop themselves into most beautiful negatives. Inasmuch as the professional photographer is thoroughly acquainted with the light conditions in his studio, his exposures will run uniform and the separate controlling of negatives during development is entirely obviated. One will thereby obtain negatives, developed in a tank by developer of given strength and in exact amount of time, of the desired strength and quality, and without further examination can immediately fix same.

Tank development also, to a great extent, corrects errors in lighting and allows of a wider scope. As I have been using tank development for about fifteen years, I believe my experience of this method allows me to state that the same is "Ideal."
