This is a print from another negative that I took one summer, years ago now, when I volunteered on an American Summer Camp, in between college terms. There I spent a couple of months teaching young lads aged from about 8 to 15 years, the basics of taking, developing and printing black and white film. So these negs are now close to 30 years old.


The negative was taken with a Praktica MTL5B totally manual camera, with what looks like a mix of ambient and bounced flash light. The film would have been Kodak and would have been developed in D76. The original prints would have been printed on what ever version of Kodak multigrade RC paper was about at the time in Kodak chemicals.


The camp was called Camp Airy in Maryland, just south of New York and I remember it being a very hot summer with long periods of 40C day temperatures, with bright sunshine most days.


The negative is slightly contrasty, but it printed well in my opinion, straight onto the paper with a grade two filter.


As a thought, the young ladies and lads in the picture would have been about 12 - 13 years of age, so could easily now be parents who have sent their own children to camp. How time flies and what memories.

Back in the days when you could take pictures of children without suspicious looks from onlookers.
