Whether your a Newbie or an Old Timer to LF, this is a great opportunity to participate in a unique print exchange. You'll receive beautiful prints and have your work published in the online LF Gallery (http://lfgallery.cameraartist.com/). This will be the third exchange I will sponsor and the previous Print Exchanges have been very successful and rewarding. The rules are posted below and have changed from last year, so please read them. Please respond with your request to participate so we can start counting how many participants there will be. Please post all questions here so everyone can share the info.

Print Exchange 101
He is an example of a print exchange with 10 photographers.

Ansel
Diane
Mathew
Dorothea
William
Margaret
Walker
André
Roger
Tina


Ansel, Diane, Mathew, Dorothea, William, Margaret, Walker, André, Roger, and Tina mail nine (9) prints according to the print specs to their print exchange facilitator. The facilitator then sorts out these prints so they each group member receives one print from each member of the group. Everyone receives nine (9) prints, one print from each of their group members.

--

There is monetary cost involved in this 2009/2010 Print Exchange

1. You will need to print nine (9) prints
2. You will need to ship these prints to Tallahassee, Florida USA
3. You will need to pay (PayPal or check) for the return shipping*


*Shipping fees will be determined after the prints are ready to be shipped. You will be notified via a PM. In previous exchanges, the packages averaged a 2-lb shipping weight. We do not want to exceed the 2-lb weight as International Shipping Fees are costly! There will be US, Canadian, European, Australian, etc. mailings. DO NOT MOUNT YOUR PRINTS!

Please note that I will not have an exact idea on your return shipping costs until I have your address and print packet ready for shipping. This all takes a bit of time and cooperation. Please be sure to send your "Shipping Info Sheet" along with your prints. If I do not receive a clearly filled-out "Shipping Info Sheet," I may have no clue who the prints belong to.


Groups will be determined differently this year
A huge "Thank you to John Bowen" for coming up with a quicker way to get prints back out to you if you sent your prints in on time. Instead of establishing groups before the shipping date, we are going to try a FIFO (first-in, first-out) method. I will post the shipping date below and everyone is to ship their prints by this time. Shipping before the established date is fine to do, but in the past if you shipped your prints late, you left others in your assigned group waiting and waiting for their packets. Not anymore! Why penalize the participants that have been cooperating all along? So now there is a bit of mystery in this exchange; who will be in your group?

When I receive 10 packets in, I will ship 10 packets out!
I will list the names of each 10 member Group as the packets ship out so you know when to expect your packet. If stuff happens and you are unable to ship your prints on time, your prints will be placed in a group and shipped out when the group reaches 10 participants. If you are the last to ship your prints and there is no one else left to exchange your prints with, I will exchange one of my prints with you and look for others to contribute, but I cannot guarantee a full 10 print packet. I do believe this will be a fair and efficient system. This type of system may motivate some participants to get their packets out ASAP. Hey, whatever works! ;)

Print Packets
Everyone is to ship nine (9) prints to me according to the Print Specs below. If you send 10 prints, I will assume you are sending one for me which is greatly appreciated and the reason I do all the work, but you are not obligated to do so.

--

PRINT SPECS
Created on a view camera (2x3, 4x5, 5x7, 8x10", etc. film format)
Black & White or Color
Wet darkroom or digital prints
NOT larger than 11x14" paper
NOT smaller than 8x10" paper
Image area can be any size as long as it is on paper from 8x10" to 11x14"
NO Mats due to added shipping weight
NO Mounted prints due to added shipping weight
Include an info sheet for each photo on your tech specs, location, etc.
Filters/Digital Manipulation OK
2009/2010 creation date

--

In the past a few folks shipped additional shipping materials along with their prints for the return prints shipment. If you care to do this, that is fine, but I will not recycle the outside envelope. I will recycle the cardboard if it arrives in good shape. I will not supply cardboard or shipping materials for free. To anyone that is in need of shipping materials, I can offer for an additional US $4.00 the following return shipping packet or similar.

35364

I have a mail order business and purchase these materials in bulk. It would include a heavy cardboard mailer, two archival backing boards and an archival bag that you can safely store the prints in for years to come. You are under no obligation to purchase this shipping packet, and if you do not, remember to include fresh shipping materials in your packet for the return shipment. I do not make any money off of these shipping materials, I offer this because it makes my job easier. It may actually save you postage if you do not mail shipping materials to me with your prints.

If you are going to participate, post your name here and I will respond with acknowledgment and add you to the list and we EXPECT you to participate. If something comes up and you need to withdrawal, please notify me so I do not waste time trying to contact you and possibly keep a group of nine waiting on your packet! I will respond to questions as soon as I can and will check into this forum at least twice during the day looking for messages.

If you do not have a print already chosen for this exchange, use this opportunity to cultivate your creativity. I will be producing a print exclusively for this exchange and I cannot wait to get going! I have had a busy year and have not had the leisure to be behind my 4x5" as much as I would like. Now I have to because I want to exchange prints with you guys! Thanks for the motivation!!

Print Info Sheet, Shipping Info Sheet, Print Specs & Web Gallery Info
Include a Completed Print Info Sheet for each exchange print and clearly fill out your Shipping Info Sheet for me. I have difficulties with non-US addresses, so please type out your shipping info if you can! Thank you in advance. :)

Thank you Darr for coordinating these print exchanges. This is my first large format print exchange here (although I've been participating and/or organizing print exchanges since April 2002).

A quick question about the 2009/2010 "creation date".....in the past, I noticed that this was "desired, but not necessary". I didn't get out much in 2009. As for 2010....well, it's the dead of winter up here in Alaska. If we don't have much to work with, is an image taken before 2009 ok to use for this print exchange? I'd like to print something I really want to share and that others may enjoy seeing, not just one of the very few images I had a chance to take in 2009....if that's ok.

Yes, Gary that will be fine as long as the print you exchange has not been given in a previous exchange. Participants do not want duplicates as I am sure you understand. Welcome on board. :)

Thanks for the clarification Darr. I will make 11x14 prints of what I think is the best 4x5 B&W image I've ever made (from the mid-80s). Unfortunately, image making wise, it's been all downhill since then. :-(

One of these days, I'll hopefully "get my groove back".

On the plus side, I think I am a better printer than I was 20+ years ago.

I have posted my prints to you from the UK. Hope they're OK, I'm very new at both LF and printing.

Inkjet paper sizes in Europe are A4, A3 and A3+ - I'd have liked to have printed on A3 but it's just too big for the rules, so you've got A4 instead.

If I can find another image that I'm not too embarrassed about, I will try to send another set of prints.

Hi Darr,

I've finished my prints and will get them mailed on Monday or Tuesday.

I'm sending you 10 prints....the 10th print is for you to keep. I really appreciate all the time and effort you are putting into this exchange.

Is there a gallery setup for the 2009/2010 exchange images yet? If so, where would I find it?

Thanks again,

Hey Gary,

I will receive pretty much the same sets of images, and I can´t wait to see them. There are very few LF-photographers in htis remote parts of the world, and even fewer actually making prints of their images. So it will be amazing for me to get a handful of prints from LF-photographers from this forum.

Bravo, Group 2! BRAVO!!! These prints rank among the best that I have seen lately and I am very much impressed and proud to own them! My profound thanks to each of you for the time you spent in printing them.

IMO, the Print Exchange is the best benefit of belonging to this forum. Everyone should participate. Thank you, Darr, for making it possible.

This was my first ever print exchange.

For anyone that is new to the exchange, I promise you, you will learn a lot from the prints you receive; whether it is what a digital print or digital back capture may look like compared to wet darkroom/film; locations, lenses, compositional perspectives, papers, films, and so much more. I always learn more!

Doug and Gary --
Glad you received your packets! Thank you for your wonderful prints and appreciation -- I appreciate YOU!

Kind regards,

Group Four: Your prints have not shipped yet. :(

Yesterday I had to file papers with my county court involving a psycho neighbor that had assaulted and injured one of my rescue dogs last weekend on my property. After the papers were filed, the judge handed down a decision in a few hours and I was instructed to return to the court to pick up the restraining order the judge issued. I also was notified at that time, that the Sheriff would be removing all this neighbors weapons, primarily guns and ammunition from his home and they wanted me not to return home until that was completed. So my son took me out to eat and a neighbor friend called via cell after witnessing psycho being served and the Sheriff Deputies removing his guns This is good for me and my dogs, but unfortunately it took most all of my day off.

I am planning on getting your packets ready to ship over the weekend and will be at the Post Office on Monday. Due to foreign shipments, it is required that I have a postal clerk read over the customs paperwork, so your packets are never dropped in an unattended mailbox.

Sorry for all this, but my sweet-sweet doggy Summer had suffered an eye injury and that was it! I had had enough of this neighbor and his harassing ways. It was on record that he had shot someone's kittens previously, and if I had known what a psycho he was, I never would have bought a house next to him, but you never know until you live next door to someone who they may be. Other than him, my neighborhood is quiet, peaceful, and very dog friendly. :)

Have a pleasant weekend -- I am feeling a bit more safe these days.

Darr,

You have shown an enormous amount of restraint with your neighbor. I'm afraid that if he had injured one of my cats he would have mysteriously disappeared. California deserts and Florida swamps have pleanty of places for such people to disappear into.

Like Joe Pesci in Casino said:

"A lot of holes in the desert, and a lot of problems are buried in those holes. But you gotta do it right. I mean, you gotta have the hole already dug before you show up with a package in the trunk. Otherwise, you're talking about a half-hour to forty-five minutes worth of digging. And who knows who's gonna come along in that time? Pretty soon, you gotta dig a few more holes. You could be there all !@#$% night."

Take Care,

Doug

Darr

There is always one in every neighborhood. My first wife wanted to move the first time she found out we had a bad neighbor. I told her that we were lucky, some neighbors are worse and there is always a problem neighbor in every neighborhood.

My worst situation situation was when I had a neighbor who killed my dog because he thought it was out barking all night. My dog was not out at night ... it was another neighbor's dog that was doing the barking.

Later, I lived on a ten home cul d'sac that had two dysfunctional families. One house had an alcoholic father and three teenage boys out of control. Their paintball games resulted in stained cars and houses. They were drinking and wrecking their cars. When they wrecked one their parents would buy them another. At one time there were three wrecked BMWs (used) sitting at the curb in front of their house (I can't call it a home).

The other house had a single mother who was never there so her son was cutting school and selling drugs. He and his friends were vandalizing my property because he thought I was reporting him to the police. I didn't have to ... the police already knew all about him.

The only problem in my current situation is a neighbor across the street who leaves her trash bin on my property all week long. I feel blessed that this is all there is...

I know that this pales with your neighbor problem, but you can move and find out it is worse.

I wish you the best in dealing with your situation. At least the restraining order puts him on notice and I presume that all of your neighbors are watching.

Yesterday I had the chance to view all the images from Group 2 (my group) and Group 3 ( Nigel Smith ) , Nigel and I live close to each other and shared postage both ways .
This was my first 'Print Exchange '(but not my last) and I have been blown-away by the prints , both the varied subject matter AND the image quality.
Many thanks to all the print makers involved AND a big thank-you to Darr for all of the work that goes on behind the scenes.

I have been terribly busy and have not really had the time to spend as much time on this forum as I would have liked to.

I look forward to seeing the images in the web gallery.

Hey Patrik!
You are missed as well. I know how life can be at times. I too do not shoot as much as I would like to. See you in 2011's exchange my friend! :) The web gallery should be opened in a few weeks. Stay tuned!!

I think Gumball refers to the film "The Gunball Rally", where at the end, having raced across the US, someone suggests they race back.

The rest I don't know ...

Group 5:

I got a call late yesterday for a job this afternoon that I have committed to. The life of a freelancer is full of last minute work, but I am not complaining! Anyhow, I will not be able to ship until Tuesday, 5/25. Sorry, but my budget and networking needs must follow where the action is. :) I appreciate your patience and understanding.

Kind regards,
Darr

No worries Darr, I'm out of town for two weeks anyway. I am looking forward to the prints when I return home. Thanks again for all your hard work in facilitating this exchange.

Group #5

Your print packets were shipped out late today, except for the FedEx to my friend in Tennessee! Tomorrow for sure on that one. I will work on sending your invoices tomorrow. You should have received tracking info via USPS by now. I will send all of that to you as well. Thank you for your patience!! It has been a busy time for me recently, but I do enjoy receiving all your prints and sharing the love of photography with you guys!

Up next will be the on-line gallery uploading. I will post back when the gallery is ready to receive uploads. Thank you everyone!

Kind regards,
Darr

Although the packet of prints arrived in Saturday's mail, due to finishing up the new septic system, regrading and seeding the yard, etc. I didn't get around to taking a good long look at them until last night.

What a wonderful set of photographs! Thanks to everyone in Group 5! And, Darr: about the flowers. You can send your flower photographs my way whenever you find yourself overloaded with copies! :) Tulips are my all-time favorite and I greatly appreciate your contribution.

Well, except for my wife's comment: why can't you tale pictures like that? :)

Thanks Mike and Shilesh for your comments!

I am behind on paperwork so if I have not sent you your shipping bill yet, please be patient -- I know you all are good for it. I am snowed under with work, (my b'day was Saturday and I took off an extra day for some R&R). :) I'll get to Group 5's shipping cost invoices, but not any sooner than tomorrow!

Thank you all for a great exchange and after Group 5's shipping bills are sent, I will open the web gallery for those who want to upload their photos. I will post an announcement when it is opened for uploading.

Kind regards,
Darr

Ha Ha!! My son is now 21 and indulges in "adult beverages!" I did have three incredible Pomegranate Martinis at our Mother's Day dinner which I recommend you guys buy for your ladies some time. Really, really good!! :)

The kid said I was a lot of fun which means I had a somewhat clear head, but my normal sense-of-humor was probably super charged by the fruit! :D

My motherboard is being replaced by Dell at 4pm today -- so I am limping along on my laptop which means no shipping bills till the T7400 is back up and running!

I think my Capture One and CS5 programs ate my memory which then did a meltdown on my machine which is under warranty till 2011. Two replacement hard drives, replacement DRAM (8-512k sticks) and now the meltdown -- is Dell buying on the cheap or am I asking too much? :confused:

I think I will be buying a MAC workstation in the near future. Any suggestions?

We're waiting on a Dell? Jackpot -- invoices will never arrive! Har har!

:)

In all seriousness, there's so little profit in commodity PCs any more that the only way for a manufacturer to survive is to cut costs with the relentless savagery of a ticket scalper thirty minutes after the show started. Apples are perhaps a bit more reliable than your garden variety Best Buy PC, but getting a PC system good for the long term means shopping for a vendor who isn't competing on price and who has good warranty support.

IBM/Lenovo has been a good vendor for our company, but now that IBM is completely out of the equation we can see the beginnings of a fall-off in quality, starting with the expensive components (for example, motherboards and LCD screens.) It's getting to be kind of a crap shoot. Good luck!

Mike & Mike!

The invoices have just been sent. I am limping along with 4-512k SDRAM instead of my usual 8-512k. When Dell sent a tech with the third motherboard and it ate the replacement SDRAM, they suggested another motherboard and a new processor! I suggested a replacement computer!! :mad: Dell is exchanging my computer for a refurbished one from their factory as I told them they need to give this one to their biggest geek to figure out and they agreed. :D The replacement should be here within 21 days; at least the techie got this one to run without beeping and fan in full-speed mode. :p

The web gallery is opened for uploads. (http://lfgallery.cameraartist.com/) I will be posting a visual tutorial for those that need it. Give me 30 minutes to get to the laptop.

Thank you, thank you.
