Tips for Better colour Transparencies

This is an advertising feature produced by Kodak, probably sometime in the 1950s. Rather than being a direct advertising feature concentrating on Kodak’s cameras or films, this brochure gives advice to photographers on how to take the best colour transparencies using Kodak film (although of course the same advice would apply to any manufacturer’s film).

Although this advice is from the 1950s and some parts of it are only applicable to film, there are some elements of the advice that would also apply to today’s digital photographer, so it’s still worth a read in 2022.

I found it in a box of colour slides that which been donated to the found film project, and thought it was too interesting to just throw away, so I’ve scanned it and included it on this site.
