    4x5 is a wonderful size for platinum/palladium prints. I have several in my collection and would not want them any larger. Prints by Ryuijie, Jan Pietrzak and others.

    Mateo,

    I think this is a wonderful idea!

    Although I have not yet begun doing Alt processes I think it would be great to join when I do.

    I'd like to have a go too but it would be cyanotype or Van Dyke Brown (as I have some of those mixed in my cupboard). Previous attempts have been half-arsed, varied and based on inkjet enlarged negs but something like this would get me to make a proper effort. I've also got a few 4x5 negs now to use.

    So, if a 4x5 Cyanotype or VBD from a rank beginer can be slotted in to the mix, I'm in. If it can't, then no drama... I have RC postcards to print

    I think 4x5 or 5x7 would be ideal but even strips of 120 could work as well. A print doesn't have to be huge to see how the process itself is working for the printer. If someone wanted to go larger that would be fine but keeping it simple and easy for shipping makes sense to me.

    As far as which processes to choose, how about everyone who's interested just say what they would like to see. Allot would depend on how many people are really interested. We could have a group for just Pt/Pd another for Cyanotype etc etc. Or we could mix it up. The important thing to me is to let someone starting out in alt process see first hand how prints from someone else look. So Nige, I think the rank beginer is exactly who this is for.

    that is a great idea!
    when i get my act together i'll join in

    If you guys want to try and easy and fun process, try making satista prints. Here is a good article:

    http://www.alternativephotography.co...s_satista.html

    it is sort of like a Kallitype but simpler. The final image is a silver compoaund but they can be quite cool and display many colors.

    I would join you guys, but I have already too many prints promised.

    Alt Process Print Exchange

    Has this venture died a death or is it that I can't find the current thread?

    All the best, Carl

    Seems like it never came about, but there are alt process prints exchanged in the other print exchanges and even the postcard exchange (!). I think in the current postcard exchange we've got a carbon print, Van Dyke, and maybe a tea-toned cyanotype.

    That said, I think an all alt-process exchange would be neat, and if I can get geared up in time to make some more albumen prints, I'd participate.

    I've sent out nothing but Polaroid transfers in all the echanges I have been involved in. I've recieved infrared prints, a full year calendar, and a PT print. So I think alternative processes have been incorporated into the regular print exchange and certainly makes them much more interesting.
