    Victoria / Van Isle Large Format Users' Group PRINT EXCHANGE!

    Hello,

    Just a note that we're trying to organize a print exchange amongst south Vancouver Island / Victoria LF photographers. The tentative date will be Feb 21st (though this is not set in stone); the idea is simply to print a single photo (or rummage through the files for a nice one you've already made) and then we will exchange them in sort of a random gift-exchange style (drawing names). Any style of printing, colour, B&W, inkjet, traditional silver, alternative processes, etc, are welcome. Prints can be matted or unmatted, mounted or not, but expensive framing, etc, is wholly unnecessary.

    The date is not firm, but the 21st is probably a good day.

    We'll meet at the Canoe Club in the afternoon.

    If you're interested drop me a PM, or email me: walter231@gmail.com

    Alternatively you can email the group - victoria-large-format-user-group@googlegroups.com

    You can sign up here for the mailing list, if you haven't already.

    BTW, although we're linked by LF photography, I suppose for the purposes of this exchange other formats are acceptable! I don't see any need to bog this down with rules and regulations. LF images would probably be preferable and somewhat adherent the theme, but if you've got something else really fantastic that you're dying to exchange, don't be inhibited.

    It looks like the 21st is the best for most people.

    I'm taking an informal poll as to what time works best. Let me know if you have any preference (lunch, afternoon, late afternoon, etc) and I'll try to get back to everyone with a finalized time that avoids time conflicts and meets preferences best.

    Otherwise we'll say 2pm

    For those interested:

    Anyone who wants to join us for lunch can meet at noon at the Canoe Club, this Saturday. If you have other plans and want to drop in later, come by around 1 and we can do the print exchange afterwards.


    directions!

    Cheers,
    Walter

    Many thanks for organizing this, Walter! It was great to meet up with everyone, and the print exchange was terrific. I'll try to attach a snapshot of the participants (sans moi, of course). Clockwise from bottom left, are: Walter, Jim, Dave, Bruce, and Paul.

    Maybe by next time, I'll have fired up the wet darkroom once again—I feel inspired!

    Cheers,

    My goodness... coats neatly hung on the post... perfectly aligned S&P... sleeves with ironed creases... two little gerberas politely pouting in their litte vases.

    Oh... this group is in need of some Annie energy big time... : )

    If you gentlemen wish to add some chaos to the mix and want to have the next meet some place like ESP or the pools at Frew....I'm in.

    Hehe - what did you expect, Sex Pistols t-shirts and a two-four of Extra Old Stock?

    What's ESP, and what are the pools at Frew?

    You should get in touch! The easiest way is just to get on the mailing list:
