    general concept: 35mm b&w negatives are sent to other b&w shooters who have access to a darkroom. the negatives are printed by interpretation, then all are posted.

    the flow: as many that would like to be involved shall be. an order of negative rotation will be established. the negatives are sent and a print produced in 10 days. nothing is done with prints at this point. the negatives are sent along in rotation. again, print in 10 days. each owner should get his/her neg back around the same time. a thread is then created by the owner of the neg and each interpretation print then posted for all to see.

    fun !!!!!!!!!! :)

    this will be a great way to see what kind of creative interpretations exist here as well as great exposure to different types of paper, developers, etc.

    sooooooooo to get involved, just respond here (and get to the irc channel!).

    happy with chemicals and be safe shooting. or something like that.

    *note. i think in the overall scheme, 10 days for each print is too long as it could take 4 to 5 months to get one rotation done at that rate. we'll adjust accordingly.

    Actually, I just realized I have the opposite problem that most of you have. My darkroom is running, but I don't have a scanner. I'll figure something out.

    I have that problem too, Matt. But it's quick and easy to run to Kinko's for now...

    the alternative is to send the print to someone w/a scanner. shouldn't cost more than 70 cents or so to send it. i know i'll be glad to scan.

    ksm: irc channel. see the irc thread in off topic area. you will need this program:
