HERK Is a man In New York who boasts of
having been the photographer of Evlyn Nrs
bitt. This young woniiin, who married and re
niarrtt'd Harry K. Thaw of rittsburg, has been
the heroine of many a camera pose. But all
her other photographs combined do not equal
in number those taken by this, her special pho
tographer. For a long time It was his fad to
photograph h. r daily.
This photographer paints pictures and exhibits them.
He is a knight of the camera only by courtesy. He takes
pictures, but only because he loves to take them. When he
saw Miss Nesbitt. a slip of a girl, he thought ah would make
a good photographic subject. ' She has a camera face." he
said. He asked her to pose for her photograph. Then, as
he saw her talent In this line, he posed her again and again.
" The art In taking a good picture," says this artist, " is
to take the picture as slowly and carefully aa tf you were
going to make a painting of it. Study your subject. Then
pose her so that she tells a story. When you look at a pic
ture you should see a story, for the best pictures are those
that carry a story with them.
" In posing Miss Nesbitt I noticed always that she gave
me no trouble at all. Tell her what you wanted and that was
sufficient. She is one of those persons who drop into a pose
Instantly and hold it. The majority of people must lie placed
In a pose. Tell them how to sit, or how to stand, and they
Wjll do as they are told, but they will not do It successfully.
"Then, in the matter of expression. Mere she was letter
perfect. No one ever caught the expression as quickly as
she, nor held It better. She could look mad or glad, sad or
pleased, pensive or animated."
Few Make Good Subieds.
The art of getting your picture taken Is one that ought
jo be studied by every wenan. You are away from your
friends so much of the time that you inert photographs to
keep you in memory. I'nlcss you can leave a good likeness
of yourself you are Jost Indeed.
When you go to a photographer's studio you should go
In the same spirit In which you go to a painter to have your
portrait painted. You should say to yourself: "This picture
Is to look like me. Then-fore I must have plenty of color.
It is a piece of color work, and 1 must exaggerate my tones
and bring out my high lights a little in order that they may
show up well." Keep this in mind and you will take a good
When you go to the photographer's do not be In a hurry.
Don't think you can step In and have It all over In a minute.
Arrive ahead of your appointment and take plenty of time to
Most people go to a hairdresser Just before having the
picture taken. The result Is a stiff looking picture.
Again, most people select white. Now, white Is the dread
of the photographer. True, he dreads black still more. Hut
of the two there Is little choice. White comes out badly;
black comes out worse. White is unbecoming In a photo
graph. But it Isn't anything to black, which looks like a pall.
Wear a gown that comes out in two or three tones. A
black and white magpie combination, such as one sees In a
French gown. Is always good. That Is one reason why
French photographers take such good pictures. French
women know so well how to dress. They put on pretty com
binations of black and white, or of red and white, which
takes like black and white.
An actress going to have her photos taken will wear her
emeralds. They take dark: so do garnets, and so do rubles.
Their color will be deep. Turquoise, on the other hand, take
white, as do opals, topar, and diamonds. Wear your emer
alds, your. pearls, and your rubies If you want effective pic
tures. A necklace of green beads will take much better than
a diamond necklace.
Arrangement of Hair Important.
As for h.iirdresing, It is much better to arrange your hair
in some picturesque way. Wilhelmina fashion, with a little
Duuli hat, is good. The rrlscllla type, with parted hair, is
almost away becoming, and to some eyes it Is even angelic.

You must widen your lips In the middle to make Ihem
like a Cupid's bow. And 3 ou must make shadows at the cor
ners to look like deep dimples. There must be a dimple paint
ed In each cheek unless your style of beauty absolutely pro
hibits, and you can even paim ,-. il.mple in your chin.
Instead of the habitual ' lo c pleasant " expression you
can laugh actually laugh. And your laughing pictures will
Eyes that are small may seem larger if the lids are sllcht
ly blackened. Close the eyes, one at a time, and rub a lit tit
black upon the upper lid, going over It entirely. This makes
tht eyes seem larger. To give the eyes expression paint them
at the corners. This is easily done, and the eyes are length
ened In this manner. You can draw a fine black line at the
corner of the eyes that will do the w,ork. The line will give
the eye depth and make it glow.
Finally, try to hold the expression. Nothing is harder
than holding the expression.
