    My daughter, who is now thirteen, claimed a Minolta SRT as her own when I 'accidently' bought two on ebay a couple of years ago.

    Back in the 1980s, comedian Alexei Sayle had part of a routine where he claimed someone was trying to kill him and said that someone had posted a plastic bag to him with the warning about not putting it over your head crossed out.

    While not darkroom my 3 year old brother can make some wicked photos with my d2x, he has the idea of aiming taking the photo and reviewing it all down to an art.
    I bought him a cheap digital camera for christmas =)

    This is great to read. I'm glad at least some are teaching their kids something besides playing on the computer or whatever electronic whizz-bang. I see very little creativity in my grandkids and their friends. I try to show them some things but I guess they just think Grandpa is too old. Keep showing them kids how to do stuff with their minds and hands - they'll be the better for it.

    I don't have kids yet, but I bet when I do they'll be conceived in a fairly dark room. It's more romantic that way.

    Crude humour aside... these kids will all benefit from seeing "grandpa" or "mom" or whoever doing this archaic dance that we do.

    My daughter (now 22) was home for a couple of days last week, and the first thing she said was,"Dad, can we go work in the darkroom?"

    sigh

    (ok ok... truth be known, she wanted some of her own stuff printed, but still. )

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    Hi
    My 8 year old daughter come's into the darkroom with me, she has her own Nikon film camera.
    once she has taken her photo's she loads the developing tank, and developes her film, then prints them, the only thing I do for her is set the enlarger.
    I think it is great that a child at that age takes an interest in something you have to do yourself, and is not instant like digital.
    Must point out that there is never anytime she is on her own, I am with her.

    Steve
