    Was wondering if anybody would be interested in a round 2 on a print exchange?

    I would be willing to handle it on my end. I've got time, pretty much have the summer off.

    I know we have a decent amount of new members and after reading the film vs. digital, some of them may be interested.

    Let me know if you have interest and then we can set up the pertinent information.

    I wasn't thinking contact sheets.

    I guess it depends how many would be interested. If it's a good size group 1 should do. If it's smaller, maybe 2.

    yeah until he got the prints.

    I'm fairly interested in this also. I'd like to hear the deatils before committing myself again though. (especially since i don't have any paper at the moment)

    If we get a decent amount, we could figure out if we want a theme, or just maybe favorite print. Something like that.

    As far as time frame, I'm figuring a month or two to get things sent.

    I'll throw in another maybe. But no on the theme idea. I'm not big on that.

    The theme idea wasn't really my first choice, just throwing out some ideas. I would rather go with a print that represents maybe what you feel is your personal style. The shots I sent really aren't mine. It just happened to be what I was printing at the time, since I jumped in late.

    Should I open this up a little and post elsewhere on the TPF? Or try to limit to darkroom work?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I would personally perfer we limit it to darkroom work. I don't really want to see a machine print or inkjet print of anyone's image, if that's what you were asking.

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I was asking. I know there are people out there shooting B&W, then scanning and printing. Not my thing, but I thought I would throw it out there.

    Well, I'll let the majority rule, but I'd prefer darkroom prints only. Maybe to add another dimension, we could remember not only to sign our prints on the back :blushing: BUT it might be fun to jot down the developing technique used.

    That's a good idea. We could run it as a information sharing trade. The print could come with all of the pertinent info.

    Paper Type
    Film Type
    Developers
    Times
    Contrast Filtration
    Toners if used

    That kind of stuff. Could be interesting
