Default Negative Print Exchange Round One

This is a trial run of the new negative exchange that's been discussed elsewhere on this forum. I'd like the first round to be run as a test to see what works and what doesn't, all suggestions welcomed!

The exchange will initially be run on a paired basis, two people with similar darkroom capabilities will be asked to send a negative to each other having first made a print (and scanned it) from their own. You will be able to upload your scan to a new gallery along with a description of the materials used and the process you went through to produce the print. Pairings will be changed each round,

One area I'm still not sure about is whether people should send an accompanying print with their negative as it is certain to affect the way a member makes their interpretation but without one how are people to make a proper comparison (screen images only)?



These are the members who have initially shown interest in this exchange:

Mitch
Bill
Steve Smith
Neil Souch
Les McLean
Richard Lee
Mike Heller
Xpres




I've borrowed Tony's rules for the monthly print exchange (thanks Tony) to get us started. Suffice to say this new option is intended to complement the monthly print exchange for those members wishing to see how another person interprets their negatives.



All those who want to participate please post here and send me a PM to confirm your name, address AND the maximum negative size you can print.

Closing date for registering in this first round is 31st October 2011 to give everyone time to make comments and suggestions.

Negative Exchanges Rules

Head the PM with the title “FADU Negative Exchanges”, and add the round number
At the beginning of next month those that have given me their details will be provided with the name and address of one other member to whom you will be expected to send your negative before the end of the month.

You will not be told who has been asked to send you a negative to print, so that it remains a surprise until you receive it. When you send your negative please post to that effect on this thread, but do not say to whom you have sent it. We like to maintain the element of surprise until the last moment.

Anyone failing to send out their negative without a good excuse will be excluded from future events. If you run into difficulty in this respect then please let me know.

Rules (still up for discussion)
• Negatives must not be any larger than the maximum size your partner can print.
• The scanned image you post on this forum must resemble your original print as closely as possible.
• Paper type and finish is your choice, as is the subject
• Alternative processes, toning or other treatments are all accepted
• It is recommended you provide some background information with your negative.
• Don‟t forget to enclose your details and FADU name so your recipient can thank you
• You are only responsible for the cost of posting your own negative & print
• Please ensure you dispatch your negative within the round month
• You must enjoy the experience
• If you have any queries or problems -please contact me as soon as possible.
