the image is captured on your camera's sensor, minimizing the need for destructive
color corrections.

Lost
and Found represents a two-part exhibition of 60 vintage prints from the Dennis
Reed Collection and features works gathered during some 25 years of research and
drawn from a selection of nearly 700 prints. The first installation of the exhibition,
Lost and Found: Japanese American Photographs from the Dennis Reed Collection,
opens August 12 and provides a rare glimpse of 30 photographs by a group of Japanese
Americans who worked during the 1920s and 1930s before they were interned in relocation
centers during WWII.



The second part opening in October, Lost and Found: California Pictorialist Photographs
from the Dennis Reed Collection, focuses on those photographers involved in California's
Camera Clubs, including Los Angeles Camera Club, the Camera Pictorialists, the
Pictorial Photographic Society of San Francisco, and the California Camera Club.




Both exhibitions showcase the photographic movement of Pictorialism that was in
vogue from around 1885 through the early years of the 20th century, and declined
rapidly after 1914. Pictorialism is a photographic term used to describe images
that emphasize the artistic quality of the photograph rather than the scene it
depicted, with the primary aim of bringing photography into the fine art realm.
Among the distinguishing characteristics of the movement are soft focus, special
filters and lens coatings, heavy manipulation in the darkroom, and exotic printing
processes. In 1898 rough-surface printing papers were added to the repertoire,
to further break up a picture's sharpness. Some artists even "etched"
the surface of their prints using fine needles. The overall aim of such technique
was to achieve what the 1911 Britannica termed, in discussing Pictorialism, "personal
artistic expression."



This movement began its decline as photographers and critics in the 1920s began
to embrace a more modernist approach to photographic practice. As such, Pictorialism
came to be seen as outdated and even chastised for its embrace of these idealized
notions of photography. The trend evolved to an appreciation of more urban, industrial
and technological subjects, and a utilization of pure photographic vision through
control of perspective and sharp focus.



Enter collector Dennis Reed -- who searched for and saved the Pictorialist
photographs that fell out of professional and public popularity. In the case of
the first installation, Lost and Found: Japanese American Photographs from the
Dennis Reed Collection, many of the Japanese-American photographers were sent
to relocation camps during World War II, and in some cases lost their life's
work - or their lives - leaving work in the hands of families or friends who had
little knowledge of its significance in photographic history. Through dedicated
and arduous research, Reed located six photographers, and with their help, began
to gather material to create a context for his collection and preserve the legacy
of these important and under-recognized photographers.



This exhibition has been generously sponsored by Mrs. Kathleen Barrows.



The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is a privately funded, not-for-profit institution

Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-W300 digital camera integrates an ultra-high
13.6-megapixel CCD imager along with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3x optical zoom
lens, a 2.7-inch LCD screen and an eye-level viewfinder in a compact size. With
its ultra-hard titanium coating, the W300 camera newly features an "extra
high-speed" burst mode that can shoot three-megapixel photos at five frames
per second, ideal for fast-action shooting of sports, pets or children.



In addition to the blur-reducing effects of Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization,
the camera also has a new "extra high sensitivity" mode (up to ISO
6400 in this mode only) to help minimize blurry photos when shooting in challenging
lighting conditions, such as indoors or at twilight, even without a flash.



Noise reduction is now a user-selectable option, with high, low and standard
settings, for greater control over the final look of images. For example, a
low setting can help reduce noise without sacrificing resolution, making it
ideal for landscapes and detailed subjects.



As the top-of-the-line model in the series, the W300 camera integrates the latest
"intelligent" features. Sony's Smile Shutter technology prioritizes
the faces of children or adults so that the camera takes the photo at the moment
the intended subject smiles. Improved face detection technology can also prioritize
child or adult faces as the basis for the camera to apply focus, exposure, white
balance and flash color controls for up to eight faces in the camera's
frame.



The model's intelligent scene recognition technology automatically can
detect five different types of scenes and optimize the camera settings for those
conditions for a better photo. And advanced mode can take two shots almost immediately
-- one with standard automatic settings and the other with optimized settings.



The W300 model has a number of features to maximize picture quality. Among them
are five color modes, including "real" for less in-camera processing
and more faithful color reproduction; 12 scene selection modes with a new "underwater"
mode that adjusts white balance for more natural-looking photos; Sony's
new D-Range Optimizer Plus that process picture to improve detail in photos
with harsh highlights or dark shadows; and an improved auto focus system that
includes macro ranges.



Viewing and image management has also been enhanced with helpful date and calendar
views, in-camera search by face or date, slide show with longer music files,
and high-definition component output for viewing photos on a compatible HDTV
set.



The DSC-W300 camera and optional accessories will be available in May for about
$350. All can be purchased online at sonystyle.com, at Sony Style retail stores
(www.sonystyle.com/retail),
at military base exchanges and at authorized dealers nationwide.
