    I want to throw this out to the masses for comments. How about one of us donate a negative to be circulated around to the participants and each of the participants could make a print from it. This print would then be included in the package sent to the next person. That way we could see how each of us would interpret this same negative. Cropping would change, toning, processes etc. Each of use would have our own way of presenting this image.

    I think it could be a real learning experience to see how we would all individually interpret this negative.

    What do you say?

    I'm up for that one. Who will donate the negative and what format will it be?

    Sounds interesting. Might be better for one of us to go out and shoot a scene and make a ton of in camera dupes to send out. I am guessing it will have to be 35mm because not everyone has darkrooms set up for MF and 4x5...

    Interesting. I'd give it a go. I like Brian's in-camera dupe suggestion to keep the risk down, but on the other hand, it's hard to predict what scene will benefit from this sort of treatment, so it may not be practical.

    I suspect it would be best to vary the format, since, while everyone can probably do 35mm, 4x5" would open the option of contact printing or alternative printing and enlarging of the same neg.

    Brian had a good point in that to make it universal we should probably make it a 35mm neg. We don't want to make it exclusionary.

    I suppose we could send an individual neg out to all those that want to participate and then post the resulting images in the gallery, but you loose a lot in the scanning etc. What we could do is send the negs out, have everyone take their best shot at printing it and then mail their <= 8x10 print to me. Once I get all the prints back, I will mail them out as a bundle to the first person on the list. That person would then mail onto #2 etc.

    There are advantages and disadvantages to this method. The disadvantage is that you can't see what the previous people have done prior to you making your print. This I think is minor however. As it goes around we could post our individual comments here.

    I will volunteer to make the 35mm negs, manage the list and collect the prints for mailing if all of you are ok with this. Of course you are at my mercy as far as subject content!!LOL.

    If we want to do 4x5 or MF then I think we need to go with the original idea of using 1 neg and passing it around.

    Ideas??!!

    this is quite an ingenious idea! while I'm now set-up for up to 4x5 I think the 35mm idea would be the best bet.

    Maybe the Traveling Portfolio, then, would be a better model than the Print Exchange. We make a list and the first person sends a neg and a print to the next person who makes a print and sends it on and when it comes back around it goes to the next participant who wants to volunteer a neg, maybe with all the prints from the first round intact, ad infinitum.
