    So who wants to do a fine art nude print exchange? The rules would be identical to the blind print exchange except it would NOT be blind - everyone would know their recipients ahead of time.

    Oh and guess what the content of the images would be?

    Regards, Art.

    From the subject line, i thought you were suggesting inkjets or hybrid prints or digi pic exchange :wink:
    I don't have any recent work, otherwise I might be up for it.

    I'm game. To not disappoint anybody, it would be a 5x7 contact print, slightly cropped, printed in silver and lith.
    Also, my schedule is, shall we say, 'interesting'. It has happened that I've been part of print exchanges where I take long to send my print. But I've always delivered. I promise the return of a print.

    I'll pitch my hat into the ring here too... Y'all might get lucky and get a whole-plate platinum print, but I may have to fall back and just do a 5x7. Oh, and for the squeamish, it will be a male nude.

    I'd be happy to join in (but I'll have to catch up on sending out a couple of prints I owe people first...). The print may be a 10x8 or a 5x4 depending on what I'm doing at the time the list goes out.

    You nude photographers get all the breaks... I'd sign up but wouldn't have anything to contribute. And that's not likely to change anytime soon.

    I'm sure it will be a great exchange.

    Now, where did I put that waterfall neg.

    Come on out of the closet. We won't tell your church. We promise. It'll be our secret. PM me if you want .... :surprised: Let's make the sign up deadline to the end of October and I will make up the sender / recipient list afterwards.

    Regards, Art.

    Someone called me?
    Ah, nudes...
    I wish I could join, but as you know, I have no luck with the subject.
    Maybe in the future...

    Probably not since I'd do those outdoors and the weather has changed around here. Back to the studio for awhile.

    I'm in trouble then. I'm Hyperborean. Too bloody cold for fornication... :D

    Can I still partake? Dear Art, sir? Kind sir... I'm not worthy.

    Not that I have the time for the next few months to even get near the darkroom, but for future reference, how does one get in?

    What sort of timetable for mailing?

    I might be able to participate, but I might be a month or two away from having time to do the printing.

    Reminder that the sign up deadline is until the end of the month. Let's say the deadline to mail a print is end of November. Just in time to unwrap the plain brown wrapping paper for Christmas ... :wink:

    Just wanted to goose this one back into peoples' awareness. I'd also ask since everyone is going to send one print, get one print that we all scan and post our prints so everyone gets to see.

    Anyone else PLANNING to do a male nude, or are all others doing female nudes? Just curious.

    I'm not planning to do a male nude (not for any reason other than I'm not very good at them), but I'd be more than happy to receive one. And a "group show" here is an excellent idea.

    Not specifically planning it as I don't have a studio setup hence my limited "old stuff" comment previously.

    I haven't tried my hands at male, and if my instincts serve me correctly, I'm not sure I will. But who knows, my tastes in beauty and what I prefer to photograph may change. For this project - female. I don't mind receiving a male photograph, though.
    Is this an exchange where we exchange with several others? I wouldn't mind printing up 3 or 4 prints to exchange. Then we could get some variety of things.
