I have already settled down on a negative which I know how to print. So for this round I try to be early :)

Well, as promised I experimented with toning my last lith prints - and wrecked them. If you are going to sepia tone a beautiful girl - I mean a print of her - then it is better to bleach all of her skin: partial bleaching (I wanted to keep her eyes black) will give her an unsightly and unflattering skin condition, where she is partly grey and partly sepia after the toning. On the other hand, if you bleach her fully, sepia tone, then gold tone the result, it is possible to give her severe sun burn. :D

You folks may be getting some different prints ...

cheers

They are in the gloom of red safelights waiting for the proper snatch point:p

Please add me to the list.

OK Mike, great to have you in. I will wait until tomorrow and let my kids do the hat job. Well it is more a cap job because I do not own a hat.

Hi

We are 14 participants, so this ends up in 2 groups of 4 and 2 groups of 3 people. The alternative would have been 2 groups of 5 and 1 group of 4 but it seems that groups of 3 or 4 are more welcome.

My daughter Judith helped me with the groupings and did the cap-job. And what a good job she did, there were only two people in the same group who also shared a group last time (yes Mike, it happened again ;)) So I changed place with Ian (Stan160).

Please exchange addresses via PM and send your prints no later than January 31st 2009.

Here we go:

Group 1

mrtoml
Stan160
Wolfgang Moersch

Group 2

Group 3

Group 4

I hope this is OK with everybody.

Cheers

Looks good Ruediger! Thanks for organizing this.

The semester is winding down so I'll finally be able to put in some real darkroom time in the upcoming weeks. I'm really looking forward to seeing other lith prints in the flesh (in the fiber?) other than my own.
However, it's been a good 6 months since I've done any printing so hopefully it won't take me too long to get back into the swing of things.

Looks good. I've sent my contact info out, and should be done printing in a day or so.

Got my prints in the mail today. Seems like we have quite a few eager beavers in this exchange. I thought I'd be the first one to post, but I've been bested by Paul and Travis.

I received Lillians beautiful print yesterday. I like it and I think I will have to try that paper at some time. Because of the dark background you managed that the highlights in your print seem to be whiter than the creamy paper base.

Sorry about that, but I will not have much time before Christmas. My prints will be done in the week after Christmas and I will send them out early in January.

Cheers
Ruediger

I received a very nice print from Paul this week. It was taken in Bodie, CA and printed on Ilford Multigrade warmtone. It was nice to see a sample on that paper since there seems to be wide opinion on whether it is good for lith. It looks like it makes a nice. but subtle, lith print. Thanks, Paul.
I mailed mine out on Sunday so they should be in your hands this week.
