OK, so it looks like option 2 it is. Not exactly majority, but good enough as a trend! Here are the groups:
Make sure to send a Private Message (PM) to the rest of your group your real name and mailing address. Also, don't forget to post a message here when you have sent your print or when you received a print.
Deadline to get your print out is the end of June (60 days), so get printing!
An odd question crossed what's left of my mind -- are we assuming the exchanged print will be the WPPD submission shot -- or could it be different?
I went on a silly trek through miles of northeastern Pennsylvania on Sunday and took a dozen or so shots with the pinhole (as well as others via more conventional gear). Most of the negatives should be easily printable. I haven't quite sorted out where I'm going with them, but based on scans, I see one that appeals to me more as a potential art object while I might prefer some dramatic piece of infrastructure/geographical subject as a WPPD submission to show to the world.
Geeze, maybe I should do some contact sheets or test prints before I strain my brain further.
Getting the first roll onto a stainless reel yesterday morning was the worst such experience I've ever had -- dunno, sometimes stuff happens! Thankfully it came out OK, and the rest went better.
DaveT (decisions, decisions ...) :D
I'm sure whatever you post in the gallery, people will like, and whatever you send as part of the exchange, the recipients will like. If they happen to be the same image, awesome.
Well, I've squeezed in the time to print off the Minhole and Horsehole negs. I decided to use the Horsehole for the WPPD submission largely because I used the Minhole last year and I'm having dusty neg problems at the moment and the least dusty image was from the Horsehole.
It'll be here: http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/20...ex.php?id=1014
I imposed a rule on myself that I'd use the WPPD image for the exchange.
This is the first time I've put much effort into using the pinhole panel on my Horseman 980 and I'm quite impressed with the result. I'm definitely going to be playing with it more in the future.
Well, I PMed my group yesterday. I too have pics ready to mail, so I'm just waiting for addresses. I'm really looking forward to the prints. So far the ones I have seen look great. I also posted my image, along with other APUGers, in the WPPD gallery at: http://www.pinholeday.org/gallery/2007/index.php?gc=y
I'd like to make one trip to the PO (it's a half-hour stand-in after work on a good day), and I'd like to beat the postage rate increase coming up on the 14th. I've got the prints, just need one more address.
I'll second K's post. Remember when you send a PM you can send it to up to 5 people at the same time too.
Got a nice color pinaroid from Art; mounted and matted! Thanks Art.
I'm sending out my prints Fri or Sat to those addresses I have.
I love thses exchanges.

no word from Dylder
A beautiful color shot from Doyle showed up in today's mail. Thank you very much. I finally got my darkroom ventilator fixed last night, so I hope to get images on paper next week.
