  1. It’s a long, long story how I became interested in photography. But when I was nineteen, I was a counselor at Camp Airy in Thurmont,Md., and one of the activities was photography which I tought. Let’s put it another way: I really didn’t turn ten and eleven year old kids into photographers. But it was an interesting activity for the kids. In the four weeks they were there, they went about camp taking pictures with simple drop in film., developed the film into negatives, made what is called contact prints, and then made one or two 8 x 10 enlargements.

    I didn’t know Jerry Esterson, but another counselor did. This counselor helped me in the darkroom. And Mr. Esterson who knew this counselor, and knew he knew a little about photography, gave him an exposure meter. This is not for the camera, but is used in the darkroom under the enlarger instead of making test strips. Anyway, I didn’t know how to properly use the meter, so I stuck with making test strips.

    Do I have the meter? Sorry I don’t
