Large prints from small negatives on Artura Carbon Black retain the contact quality. Thousands of portrait photographers know the truth of this statement.

To make it possible to more accurately reproduce the contact print in the enlargement, three new grades of Artura Carbon Black have been placed on the market. These three new grades, D, E Smooth and E Rough, correspond with the surfaces of grades D, E Smooth and E Rough Iris, making it possible to make enlargements exactly duplicating ontact prints made on any of these papers.

The surface of C Iris is really too smooth to look well in large portrait prints, so this surface is not made in Carbon Black. Enlargements on the D Carbon Black will be found preferable when it is wished to duplicate contact prints made on C Iris.

With these three new grades of Artura the line is complete enough to produce enlargements on Carbon Black that have all the quality of contact prints on any of the grades of Iris.Don't overlook the large profits that may be made from the enlarging business, or the fact that the enlargement on Artura Carbon Black retains the contact quality.For every subject where you must contend with halation,will give you the most satisfactory result.

The Modern Method Of Photographing Furniture Differences Of Color Form The Detail

The detail in furniture usually consists in the differences in the amount of yellow, orange or red light reflected; it does in the case of the grain in nearly all woods, and the ordinary plate cannot therefore show this detail. It is different with a Wratten Panchromatic plate, because being sensitive to all colors, it is able to record the minutest difference, even in the darkest red mahogany. No amount of extra exposure will compensate for the disadvantage of the ordinary plate in not being sensitive to color, for, we repeat, the detail of a piece of furniture can only be seen by showing the difference in the amount of light reflected of the various colors, as, for example, yellow and reds, to which the ordinary plate is insensitive, therefore a plate sensitive to all colors must be used, else most of the beauty and value of good furniture which is due to the fine figuring of the woods used is entirely lost.

Photography with Wratten Panchromatic plates can be done after the furniture is polished and ready for sale, and it is not necessary to take the photograph before staining, as was so frequently done hitherto. Furniture looks better after it is polished, and it is also often inconvenient to photograph furniture before it is finished . On the Panchromatic plate this can be done quite as well as when it is in the "white." The question of grain is so important that manufacturers have employed artists to draw it in on photographs which did not show it, which "faking" of course is unsatisfactory and could never deceive any customer acquainted with the woods themselves; moreover, it is more expensive to have the photographs retouched before making the blocks, or fine etched on the blocks, than it is to use suitable plates to make correct photographs in the first place.
