    I can actually see the hat thing being counter-productive.

    - "Do you want to wear a hat?"

    - "Why should I wear a hat?"

    If you anticipate it will be a problem, and you're shooting 1 person at a time, I'd shoot a tight close-up of the face cropped at the forehead or hairline (if the thinning is more evident on top than in the front). It probably violates one of the "rules", but nuts to that I find the most interesting feature of many older people are their eyes anyway.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Or after you print the photograph, touch up the print with a soft pencil and add hair!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    If you shave them completely they will be hip

    I hadn't heard it before. I cracked up when I figured it out...I have a mental image of an old lady yelling "BINGO!" and waving her hand in the air, and whoever's next to her is getting slapped silly by her bingo wings.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    "What's grandma up to?"
    "Just hangin', like she always does."

    I have nothing constructive to contribute except something I overheard in the markets a few weeks ago when I was out for lunch with my girlfriend. We walked past two elderly women speaking near a fruit stall and caught just a snippet of their conversation,
    "Yes, but that's because bald men look like penises"
    I know I shouldn't, but I really want to know the context of that conversation...

    From a 21 year old with a conveniently shaven head (I'm not losing my hair, of course not...)
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Hence the expression "Dick head"
