Mr. C. H. Wiebmer of St. Paul, Minn., was one of the first photographers in the Northwest to realize the possibilities of home portraiture and to make it a very important help to his studio business, if not really of greater importance.

Mr. Wiebmer is very enthusiastic over the work he has been able to do, and his experience has taught him that the field is almost unlimited. While conditions under which the operator is compelled to work are never the same in two homes, and no fixed rule for lighting can be used, as in studio work, that very element of variety and the necessity for making the best of conditions of light as they are encountered, keeps the worker keyed up to the highest pitch and brings out the best that is in him.

Mr. Wiebmer loves each one of his pictures, because each one has taught him a lesson. Each one has offered obstacles which he has overcome, and the approval with which the work has been received and praised by the customer has demonstrated to what degree he has been successful .

Mr. Wiebmer believes in filling his work with his own individuality, and for this reason the prints he delivers are made on Zelta in one of the tones he finds most pleasing. The beautiful examples of his work, with which it is our privilege to illustrate this number of Studio Light, are reproduced from Artura prints, the surface of this paper being more suitable for engravings.

Photographing A Population

The whole population of France is to be photographed. And rephotographed. And photographed again. Such, at least, is the proposal set on foot in Paris, according to a newspaper correspondent in that city. Not only are Jacques and Jeanne to be photographed, but the Ber-tillon system of identification, which includes anthropometrical measurements, as well as fingerprint records, is to be applied to them. The ages of fifteen, twenty, thirty and forty-five are to be chosen for this purpose. Three copies will be made of each photograph - one for the individual himself, one for his borough archives, one for the police. One seems to see a day when not only will every man be officially vaccinated, educated, insured, and old-age pensioned, but will be officially photographed too.
