... I am diggin' this print exchange.

I have a serious problem here: I'm running out of walls!

About ten years ago I had a firm rule that all pictures on my walls should be my own - shot by me, painted by me, or whatever. Then I met my "significant other", and everything has changed. I couldn't very well pull all her pictures down? Besides we've aquired some pictures we both love very much, and they're staying up. And then there's the print exchange: Not only do I get serious "prestasjonsangst" (fear of insufficiency, but sounds a lot cooler in Norwegian), but I also get a lot of pictures that I just have to put up on the wall somewhere.

So now I'm running out of walls.

It's all your fault, of course :D

Got your print yesterday Gene. It's beautiful. I enjoyed your story of the Res as well. I printed my exchange photos again last night. They are dry & still look acceptable to me, unlike the last set. I'll get them mounted on Sunday & in the mail early next week (I hope).

I received Alex' and Duck's prints today. Then I went into my darkroom to make the prints for both this and another print exchange.


How did "Chuck" turn into "Duck"?

Since nobody saw me typing one-handed with a glass of the falling-down-water in the other, I'll blame the spellchecker:)

Sorry Charles/Chuck, I know you're not a quack!

After reading a bajillion posts about the previous print exchanges, I'd like to join the next one. Looks like a lot of fun and will force me into the darkroom again!

I just remembered that I shoot 99% transparencies - Chromes or SCALA. Hmmm...I'll figure out a way to get good quality prints. I wonder if my 5+ year old P-30 (Cibachrome/Ilfochrome) chemistry is still good?

Or will people accept a hybrid - transparency scan, Photoshopped slightly, but printed on quality printer paper on an Epson 2200?

Just curious.

Art.

Anyway, I'll try to get it done on Sunday (the 24th is the main day in Norway, the 25th is mainly used for recuperation and detoxification).

Good news! Prints done, and I'm rested and recuperated - and the job I was going to just got postponed! So I'll get them in the mail tomorrow.

I ended up using Bergger Fine Art Silver Supreme - possibly the most expensive of all photo papers. That was the only way to get the deep velvety blacks I felt the image needed. Even if there are many papers with higher Dmax, there is no other paper with the same surface and the same "depth". Except Pt/Pd prints...

Just a note. I received a beautiful B&W print yesterday afternoon from Sjixxxy. It is my kind of print, a landscape with great tonal range and sharpness; one that I will definitely look at when it comes time for me to do my own B&W work - whenever that is.
