Wintertime Picture Taking Wintertime Picture Taking
Publication by the Eastman Kodak Company, 1948 and 1949

This booklet was part of the Kodak Photographic Notebook series of publications. These web-pages have been scanned and converted from the "Eastman Kodak Company" publication "Wintertime Picture Taking" 1948-1949 edition.

It contains information on how to take good pictures under cold circumstances and how to treat your camera equipment in order to prevent problems.

The listing of a product or vendor does not imply any kind of endorsement and the non-listing of a product or vendor does not imply that it is bad. The names of products and vendors and the addresses and telephone numbers are believed to be correct, but no guarantee of correctness can be given since this kind of information changes rapidly and is not always widely announced.
