All of us know about some of them but some of us do not know about all of them.
I was called upon recently to make an outdoor negative and on setting up the camera at the only point where the desired view could be obtained, I found there would be some very objectionable wires showing across the upper portion of the picture. To overcome this a long bamboo pole was used to keep the wires in motion and the picture was secured without the wires showing. We would suggest that the operator trying this means of disposing of objectionable wires in the picture, use care not to connect up with dangerous electric wires.
Almost every photographer cleans his lens several times during the year and very often one will be stubborn and refuse to be unscrewed. There is a little knack about these things and in this case it is simply a matter of pressing in on the lens at the same time it is being turned.
A lady photographer offers the following suggestion: To prevent waste of time and temper, glue that elusive stick of India ink on a piece of cardboard, say 4x6 inches - you will find it when you want it."
Another suggestion is to make the cardboard in the form of an artist's palette with a hole for the thumb and a piece of lantern slide cover-glass glued to the card to mix the ink on instead of using the thumb nail as many of us do.
The Eastman Plate Tank insures better results.
