    All the negatives are in the mail!!

    There have been a few questions about rules/restrictions, so I'll try to put them all in one place. I'm not one for hard and fast rules, particularly in an exchange where the point is not to constrain our printing ideas!
    • Each envelope contains two negatives. Print one, print both, print them one way ,print them many ways. Use any techniques you want. FB/RC, silver gelatin, alternative processes... etc.
    • Please do NOT post them on APUG until say, April 11? That time will give us all a few weeks to get into the darkroom and try a few things out without the temptation of looking to see what others might be doing! If you can't post until later, that is fine.
    • Scan the end print, and post one, post all. It would be great if you can describe what your goal was, and how you got the print there.
    If you can't scan the prints, you can send them to me and I will be happy to scan them.
    • As a separate effort from scanning and posting, I'd like to try to exchange the prints. Posting a scan will ensure that we all see a version of our results, but there is nothing like holding the real thing.
    If you want to see the prints in person, send me a print for the 'collection', and we can send them around the group.
    If I didn't think of something, let me know and let's figure it out.

    I like the idea of sending the print collection around. To do so, it might be good to make the prints not too big. Well, if a restriction in size would not be too much of a restriction in creativity.

    Jon, that was quick and a pleasant surprise when I collected the mail. Thanks. I'll get to work on it the first of the week.

    I find it very helpful to *see* (as this exchange allows) a correct negative. I shoot and process alone, with nobody EVER looking at my negative to give me advice or instruction. I'd love to know every detail you can give, Jon. How did you meter, how did you expose the shot? What was your orientation to the light and what time was it? What did you develop in, for how long, and what about agitation? Everything. I'm doing this for learning, so knowing about this negative I'm holding would be very helpful to me. I hope you don't mind my asking.

    Thanks so much, again, for organizing this!

    Hey Jonathan,

    the negatives made it to Germany. Thanks. I will make a test print tonight and then settle on one or the other or on both

    I am very curious about all the different interpretations.

    Hi, negs made it to Suffolk, UK. Will do some straight prints soon and then decide how to progress. In two minds as to treat them how I normally print or try something new... Interesting...
