Photographer’s Guidelines

Digital Images

High-resolution, publication-quality images are acceptable for publication. Digital images should be made using the camera’s finest, highest-resolution settings. TIF format is preferred; jpeg is acceptable. See also the document “What Makes a Publication Quality Image,” available from www.stainedglass.org or directly from The Stained Glass Association of America.

Color Film

Original, reproduction-grade transparencies are required for publication. 35mm mounted or unmounted transparencies from film speeds 100iso or lower are preferred. (As of this revision, Kodak EPN is the recommended film for photographing stained glass. It is available from professional photographic suppliers.) Large- and medium-format transparencies are also acceptable.

Black & White

Negatives accompanied by a proof or contact sheet are preferred. Glossy prints are acceptable. Color photographs are always preferred over black and white if available.

Legend

All photographic submissions should be individually numbered and accompanied by a separate and correspondingly numbered legend sheet. Each photograph must be marked with the photographer’s name. All transparencies must be clearly labeled to indicate the “top” on the viewed side of the image. A colored dot affixed to the upper right corner of the side to be viewed is suggested.

Notification of Acceptance

Within 90 days of receipt. Please include a current email address with photograph submission for notification.

Copyright

Photographer releases and/or assigns all rights under U.S. copyright law currently in effect at the time of publication to the publisher of The Stained Glass Quarterly unless prior agreement has been made.

Photographic Credit

Published photographs will carry proper credit (if available) printed with the image.

Returns

All unsolicited material to be returned must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Materials are returned after publication or upon notification if accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope.

Disclaimer

Although exceptional care of author’s materials is exercised, The Stained Glass Quarterly, its owners, publishers, editors and staff shall not be responsible for the loss of or damage to any unsolicited or solicited material.

  1. First- I am not an author or creator of stained glass. However, I am looking for some direction and hope you can help me.
    I live in a large Health Center for the religious congregation of which I am a member. In 1960 the chapel (seats 325) was dedicated. There are14 large stained glass windows which I find very interesting and would like to research. Unbelievably, there does not seem to be any record of the designer or creators of these windows in the files of this building. Somehow, there is no name on any of the windows.

    The only “lead” I have is the Angelo Colonna whose name appears on the community cash sheets in the archives, for that time period, 1959 and 1960. There is no address. First research showed someone by that
    name in the middle ages! Later, I discovered via google, that there are people across the US by that name but that doesn’t help me.

    I checked the builder and designer, but both of these have joined with other companies and old records do not seem to be available.

    Is there any direction in which you could point me to get info about the designer or company which actually constructed them?

    Thank you so much. Sr. Mary Lydon, IHM, Camilla Hall, Immaculata, PA, 19345

    • I’m sorry. I’m not familiar with that name. It does not appear in the Biographical Index. Maybe someone else will see your question and have a lead for you.

  2. Not that I’m aware of; you would need to contact the studio or artist directly. You are also welcome to post inquiries on the SGAA Discussion Forum (http://sgaaonline.com/talk/index.php); you might be able to find something there.

  3. Is there a place from which we can select and purchase rights to publish stained glass art fby multiple artists and producers for our religious community?
