    I would agree traditional prints only. This is APUG, self or lab printed. Might get a couple into the darkroom. Don't have an enlarger. send to a lab. larger neg. contact print.

    Thanks for the compliment Kev.
    Please tell me again how this works. Do we do 10 prints of the same neg and send them to one person to distribute, or do we do 10 prints from 10 different negs and send those. I'm a little slow with these things?

    Mike, it's usually 10 prints the same, bit i've heard of people sending a few different images as a submission. I've always sent 10 of the same print.

    I think we need to get firmish commitments to see how many people will participate. No good saying groups of 10 if only 5 put their hands up!

    So, I'll change my 'maybe' to a yes, I'm in!

    I scan all my color work because thats how labs work now - they don't print optically....and I can't afford to get 10 prints done at a custom lab that still prints color using a enlarger just to share....

    All good points.

    Personally, I'm easy, but since this is APUG...

    You can count me in regardless of what is decided with commercial printing....given enough time I can send the negs off for printing....

    Any one have any thoughts on a different size - postcard(6x4) or 5x7? Just a thought

    I'm in! great idea. I vote "up to" 8x10, traditional prints only, any format.

    Since I've only got an 8x10, my prints are going to be that size.

    I don't mind organizing it, it sounds like a pretty simple concept.

    - if x people want to do the exchange
    - Everyone makes x - 1 prints of the same image and mails them to me along with a return stamped self addressed envelope
    - I receive them and split them up and send them back to everyone.

    So, how long do we give everyone to sign up and make their prints? 1 month ok?

    sounds good Tim. Only thing I'd add is see how many people 'sign up'. If it's less than 15 I'd say just have one group, any more and have to spilt into groups.

    How about 2 weeks to sign up (need to know final numbers before start printing), a month to print and send (then you get 2 days to turn them around )

    so :
    Sign Up - 16/5/2010
    Send Prints - 16/6/2010


    Now to decide on print 'rules'
    1. Prints 8"x10" max
    2. Traditional commercial prints OK. ie. Regardless of Lab process, print is on 'photographic' paper from a neg/pos.
    3. Unmounted prints only (due to postage costs)
    4. You tell us about making the print (this is also a learning tool) and if you desire. the image taking (locations don't need to be divulged)

    regarding point 2. How strict do we want to be? I'd prefer to allow someone to join in with inkjets if thats what they have at their disposal. Might allow someone 'remote' to participate where they normally couldn't.

    Anything else?

    Nige.
