1 A picture snapped from Inside the htuu and through a window often
proves to be a fascinating, bit of work.
fascinating ixterplay of roof lraes,
tree portraits are typical . of plo
tures that may be made at home
unusual picture ot usual subjects.
Don't be afraid of doing things
differently It's a tonlo to tackle old
subjects from new points of view.
If, to get a shot that appeals to you,
you have to upset the "laws" of safe-and-sane
snapshooting, don't hesi
tate. If your eye enjoys the scene,
whatever it Is, the chances are that
your camera will enjoy It too.
With such helps as the in
expensive photo-flood . bulbs (tor
which efficient reflectors are avail
able) you can do your snapshooting
Indoors as well as out. Present-day
cameras, films and lights give you
unlimited scope tor your snapshoot
ing. Today almost any, picture is
possible and at any time.
Of all words of praise for the
snapshooter, the sweetest are these,
spoken by a frleiid: "Well, would
you look at that! I've seen that spot
every day for the last fifteen years
and I never dreamed it had the mak
ings of a picture like this."
Maybe you've heard these words
josu van uuiiaer
j IT'S almost unbelievable but it is
; -1 true that many amateur snap
, shooters have the notion that it is
i only the unusual that is worthwhile
snapping. When they travel, a
camera is taken along to get pic
tures of new scenes and new faces
but they use it around their homes
only on special. occasions.
"But," you may say, Tve already
made good snaps around the. house.
What else is there to shoot?"
Nobpdy can answer that question
for you directly: But It's dollars to
doughnuts that-there are doiaas of
untouched picture possibilities. And
all of them -Interesting as the ones
already in your album.
The secret of finding them Is sim
ply a matter of keeping your eyes
open. Oet the habit of looking at
things everything as though you
had never seen them before. It's
amazing the way this habit will
sharpen your interest now dulled
by sheer familiarity in even the
most commonplace thicg3.
Some of the finest pieces of pho
tographlg art have been results of
apprecrative eyes in the heads of
stay-at-homes. The pattern of sun
