  2. IMHO, digital processing of color images provides the opportunity for better
    prints. So the "don't have to" part is valid only if you desire unmodified
    prints from negatives.

    (Or do you optimize contrast, dodge and burn, retouch, and sharpen 35mm
    frames? And then there is slide film as well)

    How about making a pinhole camera with him and running off a few shots?
    That's about as far from the instant gratification of digital as you can
    get, and might give him a clearer idea of the direction he'd like to
    take. Or try playing on the Harry Potter thing, and make out that the
    darkroom is the sort of place an alchemist/magician would hang out. :)

  4. Nicholas O. Lindan spake thus:
    Maybe the pointy-headed museum-curator types will come up with a new
    50-cent designation for such curiousities: "Static planographic print",
    or some such.

    Any system of knowledge that is capable of listing films in order
    of use of the word "****" is incapable of writing a good summary
    and analysis of the Philippine-American War. And vice-versa.
    This is an inviolable rule.

  5. It's just something "everything must be new" people will have to
    get over. While nothing within site of my home is over 100 years
    old, a few miles away are city streets that were old 2,000 years ago.

    I've never been to Las Vegas, but I wonder what it's like to live
    in a city where almost everything was built less than 60 years ago.
