I receive this interesting e mail...

Hi Paul,

The biggest surprise in photography has been how so many savvy photographers have begun shooting film ... again.

Younger people are "discovering" film while older amateurs & pros are bringing their film cameras down from closet shelves ... at least for some of their photography.

A problem for photographers: It can be difficult to find film in retail stores. That's especially true for pro films. So, we've decided to help!

It is a rather extended commercial. For more information go to..
http://archive.benchmarkemail.com/D...aboratories-Photographers---Fuji-OTUC-Version

Seeing the box of Kodak film shown in the e mail ,where you were limited to 36 exposures for $7, rather than unlimited shots using your I phone at no cost. The question is how many of the I phone photos have thought behind them. Do any of the thousand of iPhone photos ever enter an album?

Most of us have memories of parents or grandparents taking out the family album. Then carefully looking at black and white or faded color photo. Each has a story and a fond memory.

Can this initiative aimed at the young by Dale Labs, motivate more that the minority photo hobbyists to return to the time of your grandparents when each photo was a memory treasure using a camera?

This thought led me to think about life experiences by parents and grandparents that are gone and never be experienced by the younger generation

A few of my memories that may never be experienced by my children or grandchildren...

Flying First Class in a 747...
https://www.executivetraveller.com/the-fabulous-bars-lounges-and-restaurants-of-the-boeing-747

A few airlines still offer the newest version the 747-800 but nothing like the formality and quality of airline dining 40 years ago


Traveling overnight on the Orient Express Paris to Venice with a black tie dinner on board...
https://www.belmond.com/trains/euro...uGOP5kU1owh3sLzokJcaAjoKEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
In small measure still available London to Paris shown in this commercial.


A taster menu at a Charlie Trotters in Chicago...

https://www.eater.com/2013/11/5/6336241/here-are-menus-from-charlie-trotters-over-the-years
Charlie Trotter is no longer with us but created a memory


A dinner on the top floor of the World Trade Center Windows on the World...
https://ny.eater.com/2013/9/11/6547477/windows-on-the-world-new-yorks-sky-high-restaurant
One thing to notice the well known eateries expected their clients to be dressed for the occasion. Today most restaurants are casual. Jackets and ties for men seem to be the exception.

Will fine dining ever return to more formality?


A BOAC supersonic Concorde Flight New York to London in 3 hours...
https://www.heritageconcorde.com/g-boac-204

Fortunately you your children and certainly your grandchildren will have the opportunity to fly a commercial supersonic airliner within the next 20 years.

Some of those memories above were expensive, but worth adding to your bucket list if there is a newer variation.

There are simpler memories to mention.

A pleasures like visiting a Horn and Hardart Automat with your kids and let them get their own lunches with change supplied by parent.
https://www.6sqft.com/horn-and-hardart-automats-redefining-lunchtime-dining-on-a-dime/

I hope I have stirred some memories. Share some of your experiences that would be difficult to duplicate today.

Hopefully you have a family album with old fashioned snapshots to help you recall.

I received this e mail from my nephew Dale Farkas, president of Dale laboratories.

This could be of special interest to serious photographers especially those who ski...

A Useful & Interesting Story

For Skiing Enthusiasts Who Want to Take Pictures: I did a newsletter last week that was targeted to photographers who were interested in skiing. It has tips on how to get nice pictures ... comfortably and safely ... on ski slopes or in cold weather. Here’s the link to the newsletter/story: http://archive.benchmarkemail.com/D...On-the-Ski-Slopes--or-In-Any-Wintery-Climate-

The trick is shooting on either cell phones or single use cameras. The newsletter spells this out briefly and nicely.

A 10% Special Discount For ODWire Subscribers Who Shoot Film:

It seems that a lot of people are shooting film these days. We literally had to double our processing and scanning capacity last year to meet the demand. Film is so popular these days that neither Kodak nor Fuji can manufacture enough of it.

A percentage of your “old timers” or younger optometrists might be interested in shooting this way.

The reason film has had such a comeback is that labs, like ours, can develop 35mm (or 120) film and provide digital images of photos on the film. So, people can use film shots for social media and ways they’d use with digital camera images. (Like making prints on their home computer printers.)

Our new site, BestFilmDeveloping.com provides an easy way for photographers to shoot film and then mail it to us for processing, film scans or traditional prints. (with file delivery over the Internet)

We make the process pretty easy.

• People place an order for the film they want us to process online at BestFilmDeveloping.com

• We email them a postpaid label they can print out so they can drop their film into any secure envelope to mail to us.

• Scanned images are delivered via an email to the photographer. The email contains a download link so that they can bring the images into their computers or cell phone’s library.

• Photo prints and the photographer’s negatives are returned by mail to the photographer’s home. (Would you believe that drug store labs literally trash the negatives?)

Please check out the BestFilmDeveloping.com site to see how it works.

I set up ODWire.com with a special discount code that you can offer to your optometrists, if you wish to give them a “special”.

The Promo Discount Code is ODWire22 . It will take 10% off the customer’s cost for film processing. (Unfortunately, I can’t offer that on digital photography or from phones, as yet, but we might in the future.)

A video that shows our lab operation and explains our online ordering system in under 60 seconds is at . I’m sure Adam & you know how to make that and other links.

An informative E mail from my nephew Dale Farkas,founder and President of Dale Laboratories...



Order Square Prints To Add Impact To Your Pictures
Hello Paul,

Want to Give Your Enlargements a More Dramatic Look? Try Square Prints!

We're all pretty accustomed to making our prints in standard rectangular sizes like 8" x 10" or full frame sizes such as 8" x 12". These sizes "feel good" to the eye.

But...did you know that you can add extra drama to some images by printing them as squares rather than rectangles?

image1575618.jpg
A square format works beautifully for this
portrait by Ed Regan. 35mmStreets.com
Ed Regan's FlikR page
Why Square? Some years ago the square format was very popular because of the cameras many pros were using. Hasselblad and Rollei 120s shot a square format. Photographers who composed square often wanted to keep them that way. So, it wasn't unusual to see square prints and photo albums.

When digital cameras replaced 120 for event photography the square format was pretty much dropped by pros. Lately, though, a lot of photographers have rediscovered just how great square prints can look.

Here's an example of a scenic:

Old fashioned photography as a hobby.

Dale takes you back in time that might peak your interest.

Try This Project To
Challenge Your Creativity

These days almost anybody can take a picture.

Whip out a cell phone, point it and touch the screen. The phone's camera & software will do virtually everything for you. Even basic snapshots come out looking pretty good on a cell phone.

As a traditional photographer, I'd ask is whether a picture enhanced by artificial intelligence is truly a photograph?

Call me a dinosaur, but I think of photography as human art form.

Would you like an interesting challenge?

Try this test of your creativity & photographic skill. I think you'll enjoy it.*
Dale

* This can also be a great family project where you include the kids!
Experience real photography at its most basic!
Shoot a Roll of Film With a
Single-Use-Camera
Go back to basics. Take some pictures without hi-tech equipment & computer enhancements.

Why? Here are two good reasons:

1. Shooting with a "no frills" camera can be a lot of fun.
You're going to have visualize how a subject will look the old fashioned way
... just as the best photographers have over the years.

2. You're going to be amazed at how good a photographer you actually are.
    • Believe-it-or not, you'll get some awesome shots!
    • Let's face it ... anybody can take hundreds of digital photos and come out with a few good ones. When you're limited to 27 pictures you are going to be sure that the pictures are perfectly composed before you shoot.
About Single Use Cameras ...
  • Kodak & Fuji offer a wide assortment of single use cameras. They range from color to Black & White to waterproof cameras you can take to locations where you wouldn't want to risk damaging your expensive dSLR.
  • Unfortunately, supply chain issues may make finding OTUC (One Time Use Cameras) a bit difficult.
  • We suggest you look online if you can't find a camera locally.

Autumn Photography...




image418892.jpg
Hi Paul,

Are you planning to take scenic photos this Fall? It's pretty tough not to get a beautiful picture. Still, there's always room for improvement.

My son, David, took these pictures during a trip to New Hampshire and Vermont that included a select group of photo enthusiasts.

I'll be using David's beautiful photos to offer some suggestions you can use in your own photography.

Tip #1: Follow the Mist

One of the best times to take pictures as the seasons change is in the early morning or when there is mist in the air.

image415258.jpg
The Rule of Thirds Is Used Vertically With the Image Cut in Half Horizontally​
image415259.jpg
A Meandering Road Leads the Eye​
Mist mutes color and allows subtle shape and design to come through.

Notice how David has used the softness of the mist to create a feeling of serenity in all of these pictures.



image415262.jpg
A Lifting Morning Mist Frames This Composition From Above​

Tip #2: Use Perspective

Perspective creates strong images and carries the viewer's eye into your pictures.

image415264.jpg
Perspective From the Rails and Water Bring All Visual Elements Together​

image415263.jpg
Mild Perspective Gives A Sense of Size to the Covered Bridge

Tip #3: Take Advantage of Water's Unique Visual Qualities
Water is exciting in its movement...

An Exposure Time of 1.5 Seconds On A Tripod
















...and it's ability to reflect brilliant Fall colors.

A Tripod Helped Produce a Needle-Sharp Picture at 1/50th Second​

Tip #4: Tell A Story in a Single Frame

image415266.jpg
Peacham, Vermont​
City dwellers tend to think of towns, farms and countryside as separate entities. This picture brings all these elements together as a single image. The yellowing trees give the picture a sense of time.


_________________________________​

Tip #5: Use Color Combined With Pattern For Strong Compositions
Color can be used to delineate your main subject. Work the color together with interesting shapes and you'll get stunning pictures.

Here subtle background colors and shape bring out the strong visual pattern of the barn:

This picture uses an enhanced blue sky to give a dramatic look to the pure white steeple:

Tip #6: Take Pictures of Manmade Structures That Have Strong Design Elements
image415270.jpg
Note the Repeating Pattern on the Bridge​

Beautiful shapes are everywhere that people build. Here are a some good examples where David was able to mix nature with aesthetically pleasing structures.

The Fence Design Adds Interest to This Picture

Within The Repeating Shapes Are Textures and Colors​

A Smart Way To Organize Your
Family's Holiday
Pictures
Hi ODwire.org Members,

It's a fair guess that you are your family's #1 photographer. You're the expert with the "good" camera, who has always taken the best shots.​
image7877009.jpg
But, these days all your relatives have the ability to take pictures.​
image7877028.jpg


The millennials love their tablets​
image7875159.jpg
... and everyone will be snapping away on their cell phones.​
Their snapshots & selfies may not be as good as yours. But, in terms of capturing family memories their pictures are as much a part of your family's history-in-the-making as yours are.

So, perhaps you should consider becoming your family's photo organizer rather than just being the best photographer.​
Your Challenge:

With everyone shooting on different devices you need a way to easilycollect their images ... as well as your own ... and organize the photos into a family history that will be there in the future.

You also need to share selected pictures with family members who only get together a few times a year. (Grandma will always want pictures of the kids!)
image7877037.jpg
Our Solution:

Take advantage of iPrints.com.

Why Order Prints At All?

Here's a personal experience:

I was invited to a family reunion by my cousin, Michele.

Beyond being a gracious hostess Michele is also the family historian. She had a photo album I chanced upon. In it was this picture showing my parents, my father's parents, his siblings and cousins. The picture appears to have been taken in 1950 ... over 70 years ago.

With the exception of the two young men shown in the upper left all of these people have passed away.

What do you think the value of this picture is to me today? What if the photo had never been printed or saved?​

Your Options:

Social media is cool ... for now. Maybe you can trust in the Cloud if you really believe it's going to be accessible in 7o years ... and if you think your important pictures can be found in the digital clutter.

But, if you want your children to be able to show their children (and grandchildren) pictures of your Thanksgiving dinner this year I believe your smart move is to make some archival prints.

The prints you make this week will be there for viewing no matter how technology changes!​
