    I wonder if Daniel notices that those dinosaur photograms we're making have the richest blacks and delicate whites because they're on azo??? Or if he appreciates the lack of grain and the sharpness in the lines where the obhjects are touching the paper??? All of that bother still ahead of him, as it should be...

    Aggie, doing flowers is a great idea. We will try that. Thank you.

    Great story. When I was in the fourth grade (so I would have been around eight years old), one of the teachers had set up a darkroom where we made photograms and learned to do some printing. I don't think we learned to develop film. Is an eight year old coordinated enough to load reels? Been doing it ever since.

    Great story.

    I feel the same way every time I'm in the darkroom.

    No matter how old and jaded I get, it's still magic.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Every kid needs a Speed Graphic. Beats the hell out of video games.

    great pic jdef i hope your son brings us beauty as seen through his eyes. i cant wait till fatu is old enough to take her out with me to photograph. i want so much to show her to see beauty in this world, to see things where other people see nothing, because i know from personal experience, no matter what she acomplishes in her life, she will be rich with the world layed out before her.

    My 7yr old Natalie, loves to go with me on outings on the weekend has learned to use one of my old Nikon FEs. I have also worked with the neighbor kids building pinholes and giving them disposable cameras that I reload with B&W. It is really wonderfull to see how children see the world through a camera. Natalie helps process the film and print.

    She is not really interested in the bigger cameras because she wants to have the freedom to roam around and go through film. The best thing is she is learning to observe the world around her and appreciate subtle changes in light and color, how detail and form relate to each other and to take an interest in all kinds of natural and manmade objects and other artwork. If see continues to learn this but never uses a camera except for snaps it will be a great education.
