    With all the talk about AZO, and having never seen a print...

    Would someone that has used AZO and feels that they are producing good work with the product be interested in doing a print exchange with me?

    I'd love to see what the paper looks like and any details that could be supplied... (Film, Developers, Processing, Toning... As much information as you could supply)

    In exchange I would send a print of mine to exchange with you. (We could private message for type of work you like etc...) Basically a print of mine, for a print of yours. (And maybe just one more AZO buyer to keep the product going)

    Anyone interested?

    Joe, I may be able to do this. I did it with a another small group and there's a thread about it here in the contact printing forum. Send me a PM.

    Joe,
    I was one of the last to receive the comparison prints from Alex and still have them. If Alex doesn't mind I could forward these on to you. Maybe we could keep them circulating to those who want to see an azo print?

    Joe, Sporetera,

    I will send the prints out to Joe later this week with the sheet alex provided explaining the comparison. They'll go to Joe first. Sportera, Please PM me with your address and Joe can forward the prints to you when he's finished.

    Mike

    Why not purchase a George Provost's 8x10" Azo print on Ebay for $49.00 and you have a great print from an excellent photographer. The prints are matted and signed too. I bought a few prints from George. He deserves support & encouragement for his fine work.

    I didn't consider it actually... I've never really thought of ebay as a place to buy photography. (although I know that people sell work there...)

    I did have 2 users come forward quite quickly and wish to do a print exchange with me... The photos are in the mail system as well speak.

    That is a good idea though. Thanks!

    Since my original post I was able to do 2 private exchanges of my work for AZO print samples. Both members created beautiful work. Not mere technical samples, but lovely art works as well.

    Just wanted to pass it on that there are nice people out there willing to help eachother. It is appreciated!

    This is a very good idea. I have one of George's prints, and it's gorgeous. $50 is a great deal.
