Thanks for being patient...life as a high school teacher...hard to find a moment for myself...
I thought we'd follow the same format as last time. I was thinking about doing a portfolio style...but that's a heck of a lot of work...maybe that could be done another time. So, lets just keep it simple for now.
Find your best image that you have taken this year. Make the best possible print from it. Make enough so that each participant gets one (last time I believe we had around 15 people).
Carefully package them in a bubble wrap type envelope. Also include info about the image (there is always a story behind it...include technical stuff too, 'cause this is a learning thing). I would like to recycle the bubble wrap envelopes and send prints back to you.
Also include your mailing address on your info sheet.
I will also need a bit of $$ to cover postage. Anywhere between $15-$20US should cover it, but I'll give you a better idea later. Last time some participants included a prepaid fed ex envelope ( I think it was fed ex...) If you want to go that route, that's fine.
Only prints from large format negatives (4x5, 5x7, 8x10, 11x14...) contacts, enlargements.
All silver prints must be on fibre.
digital prints from LF negs are fine.
Alternative processes accepted too.
Deadline: January 31, 2007. Prints must be in, on or before this date.
I will then send out soon after this date.
How does all this sound? Anything we should change? Anyone have a better idea?
I need a cup of coffee...
