I am posting the rules here as one participant's email kept bouncing back to me.
First of all, I'd like to thank all of you for participating. I'm really looking forward to this. There are fifteen members (myself included).
Donald Hutton (Donald, your email wouldn't go through)
Andy O'Neill (yours truly)
I will need for all of you to forward me your mailing addresses. I will then forward to all participants.
Print Exchange Rules:
Prints from LF negatives (4x5, 5x7, 8x10)
Send one 8x10 print, unmounted to all participants.
Print can be fibre or RC (preferably fibre, eh!)
Alternative prints on whatever paper(sorry, I don't know anything about alternative but really really want to see examples!)
Colour or B/W prints
Digital neg printed on gelatin silver fibre or RC is okay.
Digital output is okay but must be of high quality on best paper available. (sorry, I know nothing about digital). Image must have started from LF negative.
Along with each print, include the story which led up to the exposure of the negative. Talk about camera movements, etc. Include film used, format, developer and development. Most importantly, tell us how you made the print. Paper used, post work, etc.
Upon receiving prints from participants, please email them a mini-critique and a big thank you!
Now for many, this time of year is a busy time. I would like to set the mailing deadline for January 31, 2005. Please send out all prints by no later than this date.
These rules are not written in stone. Please email me if something is strange or if we should change/add something.
Get those mailing addresses in to me and happy printing!
