|Back in 1969-70 I was introduced to the art & science of photography. Maurice Conklin was my mentor, he brought me into the darkroom where I first saw the magic under the amber light of a shiny white piece of paper soaking in a clear liquid magically forming an image.
I admit at times I miss the darkroom, as I spent 30 years working in them. Photoshop has it’s own magic, but in a chemical darkroom you felt like an alchemist!
Maurice was an Engineer for Defense Research, and was a long time member of the Camera Club of Ottawa.
In 1970 he introduced me to the CCO, and I have been a member ever since.
