m w v ' w m " m w m ' 6F ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLI Sunday, October 18, 1953 eii laka Piciwiel There's More to Grid Photos Than Field Play By NORRIS HARKNESS You go to a football game after graduation, that is -both to ;see your team win'and to enjoy your friends at and , after the day's nominal excitement. Thei equal variety: if you shoot only the game, you miss much of the fun. The frantic crowd during the long run is an important part of all of it in either still shots or a more formal movie, and some of the most dramatic football; pictures have been made of the : substitutes on the bench and the coach's torment, so don't got so lost in the game that you miss the best chances for pictures. Probably the best system when pictures are the goal of the game is to decide on what exposure and focus seem right and then concentrate on the faces around you. Several years ago I sat oni the aisle in the Yale Bowl and shot several rolls of 35mm color on what a group of old I grads did four rows behind me, on the other side of the open; space. The series shows the' whole progress of what happened on the field and an occasional; shot of the scoreboard only filled in the actual figures. They were interested, then excited, then let down, then elated, then suDciuea, and finally bitterly disappointed and unhappy. That group of six faces in the setting of other excited fans show the progress of the game better than the actual pictures of the game. If you are realy enjoying football, you are working with your high school team or some other local eroup. Keep in mind what can be done by photographing what happens as they play. There's more than the football in the game. - JDITING WILL HELP That ; boxful of slides of the sum mer vacation trip have a particular interest for all the family.

Differing camera heights also help break up the monotony and shooting over shoulders when photographing a conversation adds interest. Frequent changes make for better films.

Begin by culling out the less good shots, the bad exposures and the ones which show camera "wiggle or some other fault. Then start laying them out in order.

A Codd T idea is .to arrange them to suggest one tour of the city and to show what might have been seen in that one day of wandering. Laying them out on a sheet of glass with a light under it makes it easier to select what comes next, and 1 find that getting the whole family into the act makes it a better show since more ideas come into it. Then, when they are just as you want them, mark the lower left corner, when the slide is held as it should look on the screen. That mark becomes the upper right as the slide goes into most projectors. If you have one of the auto matic projectors, set up the slides as they will go into the machine and put a tight rubber band around the whole group. Then, with a pen or a colored pencil, draw a line parallel to one edge of the bunch and a diagonal from near the end of that first line to the opposite corner. The two will serve to identify the slides in that group and to show their proper order. (CONTRAST CONTROL One mistake that most of us make in doing portraits is to have too much contrast between the face and clothing, or, to put it another way, too much light on the face in proportion to that on the rest of the picture area. We want to use fairly short exposures with a lens opening small enough to get everything perfectly sharp, so we move the the detail in a dark suit or dress AKE MOVIES MORE INTERESTING A good movie is primarily a story telling medium, but it can put the story over when the technique is adequate.; That calls for reasonably accurate exposure, a steady camera which moves only when there is a good reason, and the use of different camera angles and working distances. Naturally, the story must have a beginning. action leading to some sort of suitable ending,1 332 E. MAIN ST. LOcust 8120 M.n. thru St. t:45-5:50 a Thun. Ivn. WO r .

When electricity is made from coal a certain tmount of imoke is given off as a result. To eliminate my possible annoyance to you, we have taken steps for many yean to reduce the output of smoke from the itacks in our plants. Hen'i How a Dust Collector Works ... Oust iaden AIR -A For example, dust protectors (for "filtering out smoke) have been used in the stacks at Russell Station on Beach Avenue since it was first built. We are also modernizing our smoke eliminating equipment in our two other major steam generating plants: Station 8 on Lawn Street and Station .1 on Mill Street. In addition, dust collectors are being installed in the stacks of Station' 9 at Lincoln Park.

Other factors which play an important part in keeping Rochester's skyline smoke-free include the New York Central Railroad's conversion to Diesel engines and the increasing use of RG&E's steam for' .heating in downtown buildings more than 95 of these buildings are now heated by RG&E steam.
