After realizing I had a box of paper in my fridge that I probably am not going to use for anything else, the thought of a paper neg excnahge
entered my head. Anyone up for such an exchange?

If there's enough interest, I guess it could be organized like the uberpopular postcard exchange:
1) Sign up in January
2) Print and mail in February and March
3)Breather in April

PS,

Any size print is fine with me. Shoot paper as big as you want/can/afford to or as small. I have a 5x7 camera, so I'll be working with that size :D

Finally got some responses to this! I was beginning to think it was a bad idea :D


I guess before we get a timeline set up, we should wait a few days to see if anyone else wants to join in.

Also, the internet at my house is out for the next few days, so I'll only be on sporadically until late this week or early next week, maybe even later if Hughesnet doesnt get their crap together, so be patient if I'm not every day :D

Nope, it is a great idea.

I just missed it somehow in the myriad of new posts that come in every day. Having a dedicated forum solved that little problem :)

Yeah, the paper neg forum was a good idea. I didnt realize the forum was created until I saw I had responses to this thread :D

ok, so I guess this is going to be it for this paper neg exchange.

This might be a good time to agree upon some rules, maybe? :D

I'll post these here and then we can discuss, change, whatever we need/want to

1) since this is a small group, I think we can fairly easily handle swapping a print with everyone (unless someone wants to use some monster-sized paper print. I can tell you now not to expect anything bigger than 8x10 from me :D)

2) If this will help with the swapping of addresses, everyone can send their info to me and I can pass them along to the others. But we have such a small group that I think we can handle getting in touch with everyone else. Doesnt matter to me; I'll do whatever is easist for everyone else :D

3) Lets plan on spending March and April shooting, printing, and sending out the prints. It might not take us that long, but I think it's best to take our time so we arent rushed

4) Might be best to post suggestions here for everyone to see them rather than pm'ing them to me to post here

Oh no! my first dropout! What a buzzkill. Maybe if we get around to a round two, there will be more over on your side of the pond :D

Hey guys, sorry I've kinda abandoned this for a while. Had some stuff to take care of. Anyway, I sent a PM out a while back that never got answered :D So, if we're still up for it, lets exchange those addresses and get to moving this thing along. If not, I'm not gonna get all butthurt about it :D

Hello
Would you consider a photogram a paper negative? Or I could make a paper negative from the photogram print. Or does the image have to be shot with a camera? Thanks.

Yeah, I'm cool with photograms, ans I'm sure everyone else wanting to get involved is, too.

Honestly, I'm ready to exchange addresses and get this thing going. I think the "sign up" time has been going on long enough. I guess we should add your name to the compiled list a few posts above :)


BTW, sorry I've kinda abandoned this thread (and apug) for the last week or so. Had some stuff going on.
