Our illustrations are from Eastman School negatives and give a very good idea of the class of work that is being made at the school demonstrations.

Eastman Portrait Film is used in these home portrait demonstrations, the negatives being made by artificial light which is used from necessity rather than choice. However, the conditions which exist in the average home are very nearly duplicated and the methods of lighting and handling of subjects are very instructive.

The 1916 School offers more in the way of practical demonstrations than any previous school that has been sent out from Rochester, and the record breaking attendance is proof positive of the interest these demonstrations have created.

Several new features have been added to the portrait demonstrations, including posing and negative making of babies, children and groups of mother and children, wherever it is possible to secure subjects.

There's a photographer in your town. Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N. Y.

In the demonstrations of commercial work the most practical and convenient apparatus is shown, explained and used, the most difficult subjects are prepared for photographing and the various new methods are shown and explained. Actual negatives are made, using the most approved methods for lighting difficult subjects, the resulting negatives being shown.

In the business lectures and demonstrations a practical business system for the photographer is a prominent feature. We think it is a most valuable offering. But there are valuable suggestions and ideas in every line of work, and it is decidedly worth your while to attend every lecture and demonstration.

Watch the dates and be prepared to take advantage of the school when it is in your locality.


As the name implies, Safelights used in connection with Safelight Lamps, make your dark room a safe place to handle and develop plates.

There's a Safelight that's safe for your particular use.
