    FS: Print to help Bill Schwab Kickstarter

    Dear APUG members,

    I am selling this 14x18" toned silver gelatin print to help Bill Schwab's Kickstarter project.
    10% of the sale goes directly to APUG for facilitating the Classifieds Forum.
    I will take whatever is needed to ship the print safely to cover my costs (actual shipping cost, no more, no less).
    All of the rest goes to Bill's Kickstarter.

    I made the picture in 2008, in the woods up near Bill's place and during that year's Photostock event. It was a wonderful day with a nice cool damp feel, with a drizzle in the air. It represents, to me, a tree of a different kind, somehow strong enough to survive and thrive in an environment of being in overwhelming minority.

    I ask 200 US dollars for it to benefit the cause.

    You can see the thread here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum162/...ckstarter.html

    Thanks, and I hope this isn't received as some sort of shameless self promotion. I haven't tried to actively sell anything for a few years. This is only to help Bill out.

    We should start a whole donation thread for the cause. I have no money, but I would gladly sell one of my exhibition prints for the project.

    That's an excellent idea. I'll offer up a print for the cause. So as not to pollute Thomas' thread (without his permission) shall we start another to do just that (and of course Thomas can add his to that thread too if he wants). Since it was your idea jordanstarr I'll let you take the reins....

    I don't know if I have any prints folks would be interested in, but I do have a Pentax 645 that I replaced with a 645n. It's just collecting dust right now. I'd be willing to offer the same deal for it's sale.

    I'll be watching to see if this idea takes off.

    Keep the ideas coming. Jordan, if you want to do a thread on print (or gear) donation for this great cause, then I'll be glad to put my print in it as well. Gear might be easier to sell to other photographers rather than prints, so Lyle's idea of selling gear to support Bill's project is wonderful.

    It may behoove efforts to give some background, here, about what this project is.

    I did a quick google and it looks like the money will go toward building a facility for a photographic workshop? I may be wrong about that ... not sure and certainly not trying to portray it as something it's not.

    AND ... I just read the links Thomas posted. Don't mind me, folks. I'll be in the corner with the dunce's cap.

    Here are those links, again.

    That I can ever manage to find the shutter release surely would amaze people on this thread.

    Thanks, Molli.

    If I had $200 to spare this month, I would be all over the print being offered. Really a bargain for that wonderful image so meticulously captured and printed. I also happen to know from an earlier thread that it was captured on Tri-X.

    Thank you.

    The negative was indeed shot on Tri-X film, using Pyrocat-MC to process it. The print it self is on Ilford MGIV fiber matte surface, processed in replenished Ethol LPD, and subsequently split toned in Moersch MT-3 and Harman Selenium. If it matters to know those details.
    Of course it's archivally washed, signed, and properly cared for.
