    Rub some oil on their head and point your flash/strobe at it.

    Reporting back on this. Over the winter I practised with flash positions and strength on my wife (who isn't bald!) using firstly B&W film and then slide film to make sure the exposures were good. Last week I visited some elderly relatives to shoot the portraits. I dealt with thinning hair by lowering the flash to eye level, I used a diffuser and positioned the flash about a meter away. I asked the subjects to slightly raise their chins. The results are good, no highlights burning into scalps and no wattles.

    Just sayin'.
    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.

    Oil is okay but to really accentuate you need paste wax and a soft cloth for buffing.

    Oil is okay is pretty close to "Oil of Olay" but I guess that is a matador thing.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I know bowling alleys have machines for people to polish their balls. Could work on heads, too.

    They would have the problem of bowlers sticking their fingers in their nostrils and their thumbs in their mouths to attempt to propel them down the alley.

    Maybe they should just stick to polishing their balls.
