Recently wrote a post about using photography to cope, get out of the house, and get out of the car. Then I wrote about my son wanting in on the action.
To which I said gladly. Earlier he had been sent out into the wild with a favorite point and shoot and some Cinestill BWXX and he did a fine job.
Like the last time I set him up with an SLR that does quite a capable impression of a point and shoot. The affordable and capable Pentax *ist.
Paired it with a great lens.
A pairing far better than it has any business being. Rollei RPX 400 was the film chosen. As usual, I developed it for him at home with Cinestill df96.
Also edited them for him. A light touch was all that was needed. The occasional tilt and such. As usual the Pentax *ist nailed focus and exposure. I am biased admittedly, but the young man has an eye. I let him rip with full auto again. Here are a good number of the frames he came back with.
Final thought. Easy. Great to share photography with others. Makes it especially gratifying when it is your own child.
Nice to see how he sees things. I am looking forward to his next roll of film.
