    It's amazing how quickly one can do this if you get organised and you run a conventional B&W process. Leaves me with time to ponder the next neg for the next round.

    48 prints in 1:10.:o Now that is fast! I finished printing last night, but it took me about three hours from start to finish. Thankfully, I use an electronic timer and footswitch which easily cut my exposure time in half over using a mechanical timer. I can see how this could get to be a burden for people using alt processes or limited equipment.

    I'm relatively new to printing and I've never made so many prints of a single negative before, so I learned a few things. Even though the developer was far from exhausted, I didn't realize that I would need to adjust my dev time as I got to the end of the session. Some of the later prints were slightly less dense and could have used another 20-30s in the dev.

    Now they're off to get butchered by the Postal system...

    Well, I've selected my negatve, but I'm having a little teething trouble with my new darkroom location. I've vacated the room I use to make way for our new nursery...

    Anyway, hopefully I'll get my blacking out problems sorted in time to start printing at the weekend. With luck the postcards will be the first prints from my new darkroom.

    Ben.

    Well, I just finished my first round of post card prints. I learned two things. It is really easy to fog paper when you make a lot of prints and don't use a paper safe. I also learned that you can make a "perfect print" if you print one copy, but it is a lot harder to make 50. They came out nice in the end and I'll be sending them out in the next couple of days..........it is posted in the gallery, but the real one looks much better!

    And don't post them in the gallery until people have probably received them. Otherwise you ruin the element of surprise.

    Hello all,

    Mine went into the post today. I've spent the week getting them ready; I need a day to get the feeling back into my arm after writing them all out. Hope you like the image.

    Regards Daniel

    I was reluctant dropping those prints in the mailbox for fear of this. I hesitated less when mailing off my annual check to the IRS, than when I entrusted these prints to the brutes!

    This was my first PC exchange. The funny thing is I took irrationally great pains to keep from scratching, damaging or fingerprinting the prints only to have them torn up by the USPS. Funnier yet is that my father-in-law works in the very sorting facility where they were sorted/butchered. I think he has it in for me.

    Mine are going into the post today, just sticking labels onto them at the moment. Since I had a bit to write about it I printed up a label for it... however, I also created a new set of address labels to suit some different (2 up) labels I found, and managed to stuff up the format of the addresses by sticking the 'town' in twice! I only noticed this after I stuck them on the cards! So, hopefully they get to you and no, you don't need to tell me about it David's is amusing... New York, New York, NY... The postman might burst into song! Also, MikeG's lengthy address was even longer!

    Edit : BTW, I took just over 1.5hrs to print 48 cards once I got the exposure right (although that aspect that could be debatable of course)
