From 1913 to 1932, the Eastman Kodak Company published a magazine called Kodakery and subtitled: “A Magazine for Amateur Photographers.” My friend Melinda presented me with my very own copy that she found in an antique store in Chico the other day. It was published in November 1924, almost 90 years ago. It is in excellent condition and doesn’t appear to have any wear on it at all. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but after glancing through, it contains the same kind of information amateur photographers today seek: exposure information for each of the photographs; how to frame a composition; how to photograph clouds; how to photograph wildlife. The ads (mostly Eastman Kodak ads) tout photo papers and film and a sky filter for 75¢ that acts as a polarizer. I took this shot at ISO 200, f/22, 4 second exposure then, although the actual magazine is sepia, I converted the shot to sepia then processed it in Silver Efex Pro. The processing ages the magazine.
