#18 - The Photographer

There is always a lesson to learn when you watch “The Rifleman.” There is no better teacher for Mark than his father, Lucas McCain. Lucas teaches Mark from “The Bible” and from experience. Sometimes the lessons are hard ones and at times rather easy ones. They are still lessons learned! Let’s discuss the lessons learned in each episode. “Every lesson you learn makes you a better partner.” “Just remember the lessons!”

I watched this episode last night and realized for the first time how calm Lucas was with Bart Jameson. After all, Bart Jameson put Mark ( and others) in danger by firing into North fork's main street.

What was the reason for the bond/association between Whiteside and Jameson? I know they were business partners, but I got the impression the two never liked each other. Did Jameson know a big secret and have a hold on Whiteside? Any thoughts?

We learn why Lucas is known as The Rifleman, not The Mixing Dangerous Chemicals Man!

Thank you. Actually, I did read being a photographer was a fairly hazardous profession-back then, due to working with all those chemicals.

Ha! Ha!

Was the dark material used to shut out light and enhance concentration or for some other reason? Any ideas?

good question....i guess just to block the light from the exposure of the slide????????

The history of the camera can be traced much further back than the introduction of photography. Cameras evolved from the camera obscura, and continued to change through many generations of photographic technology.

The forerunner to the photographic camera was the camera obscura. Camera obscura (Latin for "dark room") is the natural optical phenomenon that occurs when an image of a scene at the other side of a screen (or for instance a wall) is projected through a small hole in that screen and forms an inverted image (left to right and upside down) on a surface opposite to the opening. The oldest known record of this principle is a description by Han Chinese philosopher Mozi (ca. 470 to ca. 391 BC)

Early fixed images
The first partially successful photograph of a camera image was made in approximately 1816 by Nicéphore Niépce using a very small camera of his own making and a piece of paper coated with silver chloride,

Dry plates
Collodion dry plates had been available since 1857, thanks to the work of Désiré van Monckhoven, but it was not until the invention of the gelatin dry plate in 1871 by Richard Leach Maddox that the wet plate process could be rivaled in quality and speed. The 1878 discovery that heat-ripening a gelatin emulsion greatly increased its sensitivity finally made so-called "instantaneous" snapshot exposures practical. For the first time, a tripod or other support was no longer an absolute necessity.
