    Jorge was kind enough to send one of his 8x10 contact prints to me.

    WOW!

    I can confirm without doubt, Jorge not only talks the talk, but he walks the walk! The subject matter, and the print are ABSOLUTELY gorgeous. I gazed at it for atleast 30 minutes, then took it straight to the framing shop to get framed.

    I look forward to doing my own 8x10 contact printing soon and Jorge's print is definitely inspirational. I think some of us should eventually set up a print exchange of some kind.

    Thank You Jorge!

    You are welcome Sean I am very happy you liked it! I think the print echange is a good idea as it is the only way we can really see the impact of a print. In my experience downloaded images are never close to the real thing, specially in pt/pd or some of the other alternative processes.

    So Jay, are you still up to it?

    Aha! Brian, then you just have been volunteered to become the organizer for a print exchange.

    So the idea is some of us will mail you prints and you redistribuit them, or something like this. Once the prints are in circulation then you can just have a list and e mail each participant to who they should mail the print next, etc, etc. If you have a better idea then let us know.

    I was thinking maybe a circulating portfolio. You could have a list of contributors, and each person could hang on to the portfolio for a week, say, then ship it on to the next contributor. When it comes back around to you, you could take your print out and put in another.

    David, that sounds like an excellent idea. If someone here is willing to work out the details, count me in.

    I like David's point as well. I don't mind taking the project on at all. (Thanks Jorge) What do you guys think of an anonymous portfolio? We could open up a critique thread and give honest critiques without knowing who the photographer is... Just an idea.

    I suggest we limit print size to 11x14 max (or anything else smaller). I can buy a cheapy pratt portfolio to house everything in.

    Any other ideas?

    I would say 8x10 should be the max, not that I mind bigger prints, but the cost of shipping etc, would add up with something so big.
    If we are going to do this, then I think we should all chip in for the portfolio, is not fair to Brian to make him take this cost.

    As to the critique I think that defeats the idea of the exchange, this would be scanned prints which I find lacking. If there is something we absolutely have to say about a print I guess we can always add a little note. I dont know I guess this is something we can leave up to the group once we get going. I would rather not participate in a critique either giving or receiving but I suppose some people like this and it might be a good option for them.

    Either way works for me Jorge. I don't think the added weight of 11x14 prints is going to make much of a difference though. We're not talking about sending 100 prints here As for the portfolio, that doesn't matter either. I was thinking of a cheap plastic one. They cost less than $20 locally.

    I like Jorge's approach. I'm just interested to see what people are doing, and maybe have a discussion thread to talk about the portfolio.

    Maybe we should actually invest in a nice portfolio designed for shipping without having to be boxed, perhaps with a clear plastic window on the outside for a shipping label. Anyone know who makes such a thing? I would be willing to check down at Pearl Paint here in New York, which has a pretty decent selection of portfolios at good prices, unless someone has a good online source or other local source in their area.
