    I have a customer whose mother is going blind. For the grandchild's 1st Birthday, I suggested that we try to find a way to create a relief picture for her. Does anyone know of a company that makes something along those lines? I was thinking of something that would allow her to be able to feel the deminsions of his face and be able to remember him as a baby, but have it created off of a portrait that I took.
    We had also thought about having a mask done, but that sounds a little complicated for a 1 year old to put up with.

    Any suggestions?

    On a side note, I was curious, are there any Blind Photographers out there?

    What an interesting (and caring) thought! I'm curious to see the responses to this one. I know the technology exists, because they make prostheses from CAT scan images -- and it is a similar idea. I just don't know if it's mass-market.
