April. Our Illustrations

There is a distinction between a picture and a portrait - such a thing as using the subject merely as an accessory in creating a picture that is filled with the individuality or style of the artist rather than the characteristics of the subject.

The public wants true portraits, and if you would make them, you must have that faculty of grasping the characteristic pose and expression of the subject and making it a part of the picture.

Mr. \V. M. Stephenson, whose pictures it is our good fortune to be able to show our readers in this issue, is one of the most successful and best known photographers of the South. Much of his success is due to the fact that he is a good judge of human nature. His portraits are full of life and expression, with broad, soft light effects that rarely fail to please the public to which he caters.

Mr. Stephenson's Atlanta studio is most conveniently arranged and in excellent good taste. A feature of interest is the decoration of the posing room. The walls are finished in sketchy effects which are not only pleasing to the eye, but very useful as a substitute for backgrounds. A subject may be placed at most any point in the room, the walls affording a suitable ground.

Mr. Stephenson believes in using the best; believes that it is good business to give his customers what he knows to be right. His excellent business has been built upon this idea of quality, which is only one of the many proofs of his good business judgment.
