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.

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 ?You can use the WPPD gallery to upload the image you will be exchanging 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.

I'll take what's behind door #2, Bob.
04-30-2007, 01:27 PM
My vote is for number two.
04-30-2007, 01:36 PM
#2 for me as well. Er...I mean choice #2 rather than, well...
04-30-2007, 02:01 PM
Choice #2 sounds good
04-30-2007, 03:13 PM
#2 for me...
04-30-2007, 05:07 PM
option 2 sounds fine
04-30-2007, 06:46 PM
option 2 works for me.
dev'd shots yesterday afternoon, made 5 prints.
actually 6, but grand-daughter claimed one of them.
04-30-2007, 10:20 PM
OK, so it looks like option 2 it is. Not exactly majority, but good enough as a trend! Here are the groups:
Make sure to send a Private Message (PM) to the rest of your group your real name and mailing address. Also, don't forget to post a message here when you have sent your print or when you received a print.
Deadline to get your print out is the end of June (60 days), so get printing!

An odd question crossed what's left of my mind -- are we assuming the exchanged print will be the WPPD submission shot -- or could it be different?
I went on a silly trek through miles of northeastern Pennsylvania on Sunday and took a dozen or so shots with the pinhole (as well as others via more conventional gear). Most of the negatives should be easily printable. I haven't quite sorted out where I'm going with them, but based on scans, I see one that appeals to me more as a potential art object while I might prefer some dramatic piece of infrastructure/geographical subject as a WPPD submission to show to the world.
Geeze, maybe I should do some contact sheets or test prints before I strain my brain further.
Getting the first roll onto a stainless reel yesterday morning was the worst such experience I've ever had -- dunno, sometimes stuff happens! Thankfully it came out OK, and the rest went better.

I'm sure whatever you post in the gallery, people will like, and whatever you send as part of the exchange, the recipients will like. If they happen to be the same image, awesome.

Well, I've squeezed in the time to print off the Minhole and Horsehole negs. I decided to use the Horsehole for the WPPD submission largely because I used the Minhole last year and I'm having dusty neg problems at the moment and the least dusty image was from the Horsehole.
It'll be here: http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/2007/index.php?id=1014
I imposed a rule on myself that I'd use the WPPD image for the exchange.
This is the first time I've put much effort into using the pinhole panel on my Horseman 980 and I'm quite impressed with the result. I'm definitely going to be playing with it more in the future.
