    Give a 10 year old a pinhole camera and this is what you get.

    These 4 shots were made by my 10 year old son with a Daylab Pinhole Camera. I loaded it with Polaroid 665 film and off we went. I taught him how to read a light meter and look on the conversion chart for the exposure for the pinhole. Also, he cleaned and fixed all the negatives. I think I might be teaching him the right way. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do.

    He is a natural. His sense of framing and texture is remarkable for one that age. I saw the title of your thread and was curious - now I think I know what you meant: "Give a 10 yr old a pinhole camera and watch him blow the rest of us out of the fixer".

    Thank you for your replies. He was thrilled when we got home and he saw the negatives. Then when we made the prints he was even more thrilled. It all started today when he asked me if we could go and shoot some pics. He asked if he could learn about the pinhole camera. I fell over when he asked because my father has been teaching him all about digital and photoshop. Maybe I can steer him away from digital now. I guess he didn't think that a box with a hole you can barely see can make a photograph. I think I have a new analog shooter here. We will see.

    What a lucky boy to have a Grandfather/mentor and a Father/mentor, almost Rockwellian. Lets hope it doesn't end in newspaper headlines, "Grandfather wants equal time to teach grandchild Digital, while father wants to teach analogue". Family court will decide time division. 58 years ago my father gave me a 127 Kodak reflex and a "ABC" developing outfit but no mentoring. I've continued on my own, but sorely missed the mentoring

    Kids these days...

    Who said they were tv-and video-game-o-holics with no imagination...
    Always nice to see kids interested in low-tech stuff from time to time.
