    Anybody up for another round?

    Guidelines below stolen from one of the previous exchanges, thanks Ruediger :tongue:

    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 August 31.

    9. Prints to be sent by October 14th. That provides six weeks to make your prints after the sign up period ends.


    Cheers
    Jeff

    Count me in! If it was not for the exchanges, I would never find the courage to print Lith again.

    Actually, I'm interested, but I'm going to hold off signing up for the exchange until we get nearer the deadline (I know that's soon!) -- my darkroom is 90% up and ready, but I need to make sure everything is working as it should before I commit to anything.

    Can't miss a lith exchange. Life's overfull these days, but I'll make it a darkroom priority.

    I'm in! I have missed the lith print exchange after the two first ones. Have some new negs I want to try out. Or maybe an old one.

    Sign up is done.

    I will send messages to all participants soon to collect postal details with the aim to have groups worked out in a day or two.

    Looks like we have 10, so 2 groups of 3 and a group of 4. If you want to be in the group of 4 (you'll send print/s to 3 people rather than 2) please tell me when you reply to my message.

    cheers
    Jeff

    Sending 3 prints is OK for me. So you can put me into a group of four.

    Cheers

    Thanks for putting this together Jeff!

    I have a huge backlog of images to choose from, hopefully I can get some lith printed this week.

    I'll be a bit late this round. I'm fighting with a thermostat on my Jobo and that monster half-assembled takes up all the space in my darkroom. Sorry about the delay...

    This weekend and next are crazy busy for me but I hope to have the prints done and ready to go by the end of the month. Looking forward to seeing what this round produces!

    When's the next exchange?

    Neck surgery laid me low, but I'm learning to manage with my previously unused left hand--typing a significant challenge. When will the next print exchange happen--I think I can!?
