Realistic Story of Steel Told in Photo-Murals (Feb, 1935)
Wait a minute. You mean that’s a photograph? Not a window? Wow, they sure had me fooled.
Realistic Story of Steel Told in Photo-Murals
Interesting scenes in the steel industry, from the mine to finished bridges and buildings, decorate the walls of one room in a Chicago club. The story is told in photo-murals. In a curved alcove at one side, the wall is completely covered with one large mural showing a night scene at a steel mill. So realistic is it that the observer feels he actually is looking through a single pane window at the mill. Special illumination is housed in ceiling fixtures of steel frames.
HOW TO MAKE INCREDIBLE PICTURES (Sep, 1955)
This stuff was a bit harder before photoshop.
HOW TO MAKE INCREDIBLE PICTURES
LAUGH-PROVOKING trick pictures are fun to make and more fun to show. Contrary to popular belief, such pictures can be produced by the amateur photographer, even though he has only limited equipment. Trick shots involve two steps: cutouts and pasteups. The equipment required for them, in addition to a camera and enlarger, is a sharp knife, a sheet of clear glass large enough to hold an 8 x 10 glossy print, and a piece of heavy cardboard of the same size.
TRICK Drawings From PHOTOS (Apr, 1938)
Wow, he looks 20 years younger in the drawing. Will you be his valentine?
TRICK Drawings From PHOTOS
MANY novel effects can be obtained by means of a simple process of converting ordinary photographic prints into black-and-white or colored line drawings. For engineering and other technical purposes, unnecessary or unimportant parts of machinery can be eliminated from a picture and the main structure thus given increased emphasis. For purposes of general illustrationâ€”serious or humorousâ€”the faces or figures of people can be exaggerated or caricatured, double pictures built up, extra features inserted, etc. Comparatively little drawing ability is required, as the original print serves as a guide.
Cameraman Wears His Darkroom (Nov, 1932)
Wow. I think all instant photographers owe a great deal of gratitude to Edwin Land for helping save them from this fate.
Cameraman Wears His Darkroom
PITY the poor news cameraman. In other days he carried his camera slung over his shoulders, but now he must wear it.
This innovation in cameras, shown in the photo below, made its first appearance during a sports meet in Birmingham, England. The camera is a combination portable developing and printing room. In order to speed up the business of gathering news photographs for the papers, the cameraman not only takes his pictures, but immediately develops and prints them also on the spot, using the light weight outfit built into the large camera.
With the use of this camera, every function of photographing is performed on the field, so that the editor gets the picture along with the story.
