View Full Version : World Pinhole Photo Day Print Exchange - FAQs and Sign Up Thread

Did you all take your pictures today? If not get moving!
In my area, the weather was definitely not best for colour pinhole photography - it was cloudy, dull and grey to day. Took a few Polaroid Type 59 and Type 55 pictures with my Daylab 4x5 Pinhole.
OK so after tomorrow, if no one else signs up, I'll make up the groups and you guys can begin to send your prints to other members in your group. Here are the participants to date:
bsignorelliAlso, if you didn't take your image today or feel that you can't send any prints, you've also got time to drop out tomorrow. Just send me a PM.

I've just developed the film I shot this morning and there's definitely something printable there. First priority is to get the submission in to WPPD and then I'll be swanning around Western Australia for most of May, so depending on how much time I get this week I may not be able to send the prints out until June, I hope that's OK.
I notice there's an APUG group in the list on WPPD, is this for us to use or is it some other APUG organised event ?

After a week of rain and drizzle Sydney was fine and sunny for most of Sunday so looking forward to developing my negs in the next day or so.

I had no idea that I was going to do this till a couple of days ago. Thanks to Robert Young (fellow APUGger), I did and have uploaded my contribution. I'm told that http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/2007/index.php?id=331 will be the link to it.
I placed it with the APUG group. I hope that's alright. I didn't sign up here.

A print exchange sounds brilliant. Please sign me up, but tell me, since I used a Polaroid pinhole, would it be ok for me to make inkjets of the photo for distribution? Once it clears the censors, my submission will live here (http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/2007/index.php?id=419):

I developed the 4x5's I made with my cardboard pinhole yesterday. I think there are 3 or 4 fuzzy pictures that are printable... I'll try to print them till the end of the week and am awaiting further instructions...

i just processed 5 8x10 Fortepan sheets exposed in my homemade box pinhole camera
developed each sheet individually as i didn't want to risk scratching
a couple are worthwhile, awaiting group info

Just checking in here, and we're up to 27 people. Now I am at this fork in the road ...
I can break you up into 9 groups of three people - this means you you all have to just send 2 prints - real easy, eh?
I can break you up into 3 groups of five people and 3 groups of four people. Some of you will have send 4 prints, some 3 prints.
I can break you up into groups of 5 people, but I would need 2 volunteers (I would be the third volunteer if you did the math) willing to be on two groups. This means the volunteers would have to send out a whopping 8 prints, everyone else 4 prints.
So I am asking the people - 1 ,2 or 3 ? Pick one. Majority rules.
