Welcome carmenloofah! Yes, you have to subscribe to APUG to upload photos to the gallery, but, I believe (and someone correct me if I'm wrong) that as a 'member' you can attach an image to a forum message without subscribing. If you see a little paper clip icon at the top of the message box as you're typing a message, I think it'll work.
If you don't have a scanner or access to a scanner in order to create a digital file of a print, negative or slide, you could bring your print, neg or slide to a lab and have them put your images onto a compact disc (CD). You can then download the images of the CD onto your computer and then upload these images to the APUG gallery, or where ever you like.
I suppose a reason to use a copy stand would be to take a photograph of a print that is too large for a typical scanner and then have the negative (of the copied print) scanned to a CD.
I'll be at Bill Schwab's Photostock 2008 from June 25th to the 29th and should be back home by the 30th to offer my services to the previous and upcoming victims (winners) of this month's shooting assignment.
Hello everyone! Sorry for the slight delay with the May/June MSA. 'wildbill' and I were at Photostock 2008, which just ended on Sunday. Vinny may still be traveling since he traveled all the way from L.A. to get the Bill Schwab's Michigan event. I only had to drive about 4 hours but camping out for 5 days with late nights around the campfire and early mornings takes it's toll. I think I'm recovered now,...so it's time for me to get back on track here.
Vinny (wildbill) will be picking the winner among the 32 images entered once he's back home. So because he may still be on the road, his decision will be slightly delayed.
Every MSA has great images and it's always tough to pick just one winner, but the May/June Monthly Shooting Assignment may be particularly difficult because there are some truly excellent images that meet the criteria of 'Deterioration'. Nice job everyone, and thank you all for participating!
After Vinny picks the winner, we'll start a new thread for the July/Aug MSA with Sly announcing what the new assignment will be.
It's going to be a tough choice! Lots of great entries this time around. I've got a topic in mind for the next MSA. Just need to check it hasn't been done before. Happy Canada Day to all the Canadians, and Happy July to everyone else.
There were many excellent images to choose from but "De-fence" is definitely worthy of being the May/June '08 winner. The image clearly fits the assignment, was nicely composed, had a nice range of tones and is something you don't see everyday. The effects of the long exposure seemed to fit, too. Thanks to all who participated and it was really nice to see some new 'faces'!
We'll have a new thread starting shortly for the July/August '08 Monthly Shooting Assignment with 'sly' giving us our new assignment. Stay tuned!
