Default Print Exchange 161, January 2024

Time to think about the Print Exchange for January 2024 – FADU Print Exchange Round 161.

Closing date for registering your participation with a post on this thread is Sunday 31 December 2023. Latest date for sending your print is Wednesday 31 January 2024. I am only looking for one print in a month.

I would add that if you do join the exchange and later encounter problems which prevent you from completing then please contact me by PM. Sometimes we do get confronted by the unexpected but if I and the other two people involved (sender and receiver) know you have a problem then it does take out the uncertainty in our minds and perhaps find a solution.

All those who want to participate please post here and send me a PM to confirm your address if I do not already have it or you have changed it.

Print Exchange Rules
To start with you will have the remainder of this month to sign up, the cut-off being the last day of the month. If you wish to be included then make a post on this thread to that effect, and at the same time send me a PM with your name, and address, if necessary.
Head the PM with the title “FADU Print Exchange Round”, 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 print before the end of the month.

You will not be told who has been asked to send you a print, so that it remains a surprise until you receive it. When you send your print 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. When you receive a print please post to that effect on this thread, you may say who it is from and comment on it if you wish.

Anyone failing to send out their print without good reason may be excluded from future events. If you run into difficulty in this respect then please let me know.
If you wish to participate then confirm your intention on this thread and also send me a PM with your name and address.
The selection process will be as random as possible, and I will try and ensure that you receive a print from a different person in each round although eventually there is likely to be some repetition.

There is a Gallery for posting a scan of the print after it has arrived with the recipient. It is not compulsory but it does make the Exchange more interesting to all members of the forum and displays your work to others.

Rules
• Your print must have been printed from a negative exposed in a film camera
• Inkjet, digitally printed photographs, or computer manipulated images are not allowed
• Your print paper can be any size that will fit in an envelope up to A4 size
• The image may be any size or format
• 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 print to assist your recipient as this encourages interchange
• 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 print
• Please ensure you dispatch your print within the round month
• You must enjoy the experience
• If you have any queries or problems - please contact me as soon as possible.
Mike

Count me in again. It would be nice if we could attract a few more participants for 2024. It is a great incentive to focus on your photography. I’ve been receiving some excellent prints recently, but a larger number of participants is always welcome.

I'm really hoping it won't be too long before I'll be up and running again, photography-wise. I've really missed it all and I've got so many plans!
I'm aiming for early 2024...

I forgot yesterday to send out a reminder and check the participants.
Anyway currently the following have elected to participate:

Terry S
PanFrank
BuzzNL
alexmuir

Please let me know if I have omitted anyone. And if there are any others wishing to participate in this round you, technically, have till the end of today to post on this thread. However, because of my tardiness, I will accept postings to participate until the end of Monday 1 January to compensate.

Thanks, Mike

Participation in this Round is now closed. Participants are as listed in my post of 31 December: the faithful 4 that have been participating for a long time are still being faithful.

It is good to hear MartyNL is hoping to return to the fold. I would like to do so myself but may not till the Spring when I will hopefully have moved to Marple, Stockport. The possibility of a D/R there has been high on the list for the prospective house. House buying/selling has become a far more involved and bureaucratic process than it was the last time I was involved some 35 yrs ago....at least in England/Wales

PMs will hopefully go out by the end of the week.

Thanks, Mike
