women, and that In the good town of New

ladies of lowure who know vastly more
about lenses, platen, prints and procettsea

In 1883 the New York Camera club was
organized to satisfy the growing demands
oi me amateurs lor a common home where
congenial souls might meet to enjoy tLe
pleasures of social intercourse, and use the
well arranpHd photographic convenience,
ana irom me very day or Us inception, on
tbe payment of nrtiner fees and Hm n
the privileges of the club were extended to
lauies applying lor membership. They
were renuested to reftd n&.nn lwfnr t.hn
club, submit lantern slides of their own
making with successful pictures for exhi
bitions, aud now aud then at the flatier
ingrly urgeut request of the male members
they have accepted offices of importance.
A rHOTOGRAPHIC GENU'S.
Prominent amonsr tbe dub's lady mem
bers is Mrs. Richard P. Lounaberry, whose
work, iu txiiut of artistic merit and per
fection of finish, is fu-rmiri nnlv ts that
the most skillful professionals. This liule
aarK eyeu woman, who Is bupy over her
social duties, has yet found the time,
throujrh ber pure love of photojrraphy, to
study and practice tlie best methods. "Por
traiture is her specialty, and for timing
subjects she possesses a positive genius.
With men, women and children she ia
equally successful, and scarcely ever doe
she see a lovely baby face framed in curb,
a young friond whose features and color
ing especially seem adapted to reproduce
well on the plate, that thr llonvl
is not produced and a most arbitrary
yuungsuror sny gin coaxed to sit a second
before the lenses searching eye.
lu her studio and lattomlory photo
graphs are piled everywhere. Charming
old ladies in white caps, dignified bishops
in their stately robes, famous literary,
artistic aud theatrical folk who are Mrs.
Lounsberry's friends look out from group
frames and open albums, ami more fre
quently than all does one find pictures
of the three small Ixjuusbcrrys, taken at
every age, in all maimer of" qnuint cos
tumes, aud in every stage, cf tbe day's
duties and pleasures, from peeping out of
the morniiiK's bath till iu little white
nightgowns, like three yellow headed cher
ubs, they go the round of family kisses.
At one period in the New York Camera
club's history a tli.scus..ioa arose among the
nienibew which was somewhat difficult to
solve satisfactorily for tbe entire club.
Many resigned to organize the American
Society of Amateur Photographers, of
which Miss Catherine Weed Barnes is a
prominent member. Though this lady
lives in Albany, and her club is domiciled
in New York, her interest in its advance
ment never bigs, and, in ccr junction with
two clever men, she edits a handsome
monthly devoted to the interests of ama
teurs. SKVEKAL CXKVfclS WOilKN.
Miss Barnes is a gifted musician, and at
one time was an ardent student of art, bnt
some years ago a camera fell into her
bawls and siuce then all th-.' time and
study to be, spared from her duties- was lav
ished ou photography. She is. without
doubt, the cleverest lulvimiatrurin A
ica. In the grounds of her spacious home
in uie capita! city sue has built a laborato
ry and studio perfectly equipped with all
the necessary apparatus. Fifty lenses,
ground by famous makers, i.re counted
among her most precious treasures, and
the studio boasts au array of painted scen
erv that would stock a Kmull tl.i.-tr..

Any woman of intelligence can master
uie simple lonuulas of photography un
aided by a teacher, and after some experi
ment learn to do nratt.v wnrl
era for which she need not pay over 20 or
$26. In and around Boston there are many
well known women who use a camera con
stantly ana well. Miss Alice Longfellow,
