"Mark the word "pastime"! I writer for thousands of amateur photographers who, like myself, are engaged in a profession or trade by which their earn their daily bread, and which they have not the remotest intention of forsaking for a will-o'the-wisp calling like press-photography... The prime object of this book is to show clearly the causes of failure and the factors which make for success in [amateur press-photography], the most fascinating of all pastimes." - introduction
