    Hi Everybody,

    in keeping with the tradition that the lith print exchange should have a different organizer each round, allow me say:

    Let us start round 7 of the lith print exchange!

    Here is what it is about, copied from round 6 which was copied from round 5 which was copied from round 4.

    1. This is about sharing what can be done in lith printing with the emphasis on the process and not on the value of the prints themselves. I plan on sending my best attempts and I'm sure everyone else will do the same.

    2. Everyone will be divided into groups of 3 or 4 people. So the maximum number of prints you will have to send is 3.

    3. Print size and presentation will not have any requirements. Prints may be on fibre or RC paper. They may be unmounted, mounted, and/or matted. It's up to you.

    4. The print may be straight lith, toned lith or bleach and redevelopment in lith.

    5. The addition of explanatory notes is optional, but the recipients may appreciate an explanation of the process, such as paper type, lith developer type, dilutions etc.

    6. The exchange is open to anyone who wants to print in lith. Experience is irrelevant although I will mix the groups to give a good mixture.

    7. This is an international exchange, so be prepared to send your prints anywhere in the world.

    8. Sign up period ends in exactly one month, on December 8.

    9. Prints to be sent by mid-January. That provides more than four weeks to make your prints after the sign up period ends.


    So who wants to take part?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    I have all the supplies and been reading up on Mr. Rudman's wisdom, but haven't quite screwed up the courage to try it yet. This is probably just the push I need to get rolling, if you don't mind a complete newbie in the group.

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Hi Craig, then this is the perfect opportunity to try it out. Like so many darkroom-related things, it only seems complicated before you try..

    Welcome to the exchange!

    Hi everybody, and welcome new lith print exchangers!

    This means we are currently 12 people:

    An Le-qun
    Andrey. Gorshkov
    ccross
    David William White
    GeloHiglod
    ghostcount

    Just because the topic came up in a PM: There is no need to send me your addresses. When the signup has ended, I will put together groups (have looked at all previous exchanges and will try to make sure nobody is in a group with people he/she has sent a print to before) and post them here. After that, it is expected that addresses are exchanged within the group. This has worked out well in previous exchanges and I think we should keep it that way. If you think differently, feel free to write it down here for discussion. Or even better, volunteer to organize the next lith print exchange and show us how its done :smile:

    Also, I want to ask your opinion: should we ask for a seperate sub-forum for lith print exchanges in the "member organized functions" part of the forum? It seems there are sub-forum that are way less active than we are, and the lith print exchanges would not be hidden in the general topics anymore. Let me know what you think.

    I am looking forward to seeing your prints and have to admit that I am already working on mine.

    Greetings, Chris

    Yeah, Chris I am guilty of sending my address to you. Blame it on me doing the postcard exchange a while ago. :smile:

    I think the lith needs more light - let's see if it is possible to get a sub-forum.

    Cool to see so many coming along! :smile:

    I sent a pm to Sean asking about the chances of getting a subforum for the lith exchange, BTW.
