Photography Buffs! Classic Kodak Photography - A Nifty Vintage Kodak Color Data Book from 1950.

At the beginning of this charming and informative book it says, "With a scene of natural beauty before his camera, and with favorable natural lighting conditions, the beginner often snaps a color picture which would do credit to an experienced photographer. But making color pictures of consistently professional quality requires knowledge and the skill to apply it, particularly if a variety of subject material must be photographed for a variety of purposes."

This booklet was published in 1950, long before digital and computer processes had invaded the realm of photography. Yes, grasshopper, in those days heroic and hardy photographers walked the earth, carrying about with them massive cameras and equipment! Laboring in darkrooms, mixing chemicals, manipulating film ... producing beauty!

The particular camera featured in this Data Book was the Kodak Master View Camera 4 x 5, fitted with Kodak Ektar lens. It is shown on the front cover. For those working with these old cameras this Data Book may provide valuable information.
