When do the prints have to be out? Should I wait for the next one since I won't be getting the enlarger until April and I really don't want to have someone else do my prints for me unless I have to.

Okay, read the rules. Looks like I'm out for this one.

Print Swap numba 5!
A little bit of Leica in my life
A little bit of Iskra by my side
A little bit of Zeiss is all I need
A little bit of 50's're all I see
A little bit of Efke in the sun
A little bit of Neopan all night long
A little bit of Canon here I am
A little print from you and I'll make one too!

Okay.. off the the gallows I go :p

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, dammit! :bang: :eek: :(

I hereby demand that you stop holding these print swaps until I get home from Europe, and have a chance to go through the 100+ rolls of film I've shot so far. I can't participate right now and it's killing me.

By time I get home and sorted, we should be at print swap #10, Joe will have sold all his current gear and bought some Canon Ps, and balance will have returned to the universe. :D So, uh, not soon, methinks...

Have fun, folks! :)

I'll be able to sign up for the next one...that is if someone would actually WANT one of my first printing efforts. ;)

This is a wonderful way to see though someone else's eyes. The impact of a print far and away exceeds that of something posted on the web.

We have participants from Hong Kong, Belgium, Germany, the UK, the US... all over the place. A unique experience and opportunity.

I agree with Tom, this is a great experience and I recommend everybody to join, it's such an eye and mind opener. I had to leave unexpectedly last friday and couldn't get back to you in time Tom, but anyway thanks for the info and hopefully I'll be able to join again for the 6th edition and maybe even with real wet prints :)

I would take them all :-) ... The early works are later (when you're famous) the most expensive ones ;-).

I'll be back in Canada in July, and if everything goes according to plan (which it won't, of course), I'll be settled and set up by the end of September.

Count me in for the next one, Tom!


Justin,

Keep monitoring the forum as I post the sign-ups way in advance and the sign up period generally lasts for a week.

I only take sign ups during that period as it is just too unwieldy to try and monitor them any other way.

I plan to run about 6 of these a year. The next one will start around the first of May.

I sent my prints out to Eric on Monday. I heard from him way back at the start of this, he said he would be out for a while. *shrug*

I've send my print out more than 4 weeks ago, haven't heard of it.

How many people are missing their prints?

Send me an email at the regular address used to sign up tg.omeara (at) gmail.com. The PM limit is ridiculous here now, so no more PM's for me.

I'll check the participants and see what has happened if prints have not been sent yet.

I've just heard from David that he hasn't recevied the print I sent a couple of weeks ago.

I just received Doug's print! Actually it had arrived a while ago a the post office, but I hadn't had a chance to pick it up. It's great, I'm really liking it - now I have to make some room on my wall!

My print, on the other hand, hasn't arrived yet, which is very dissappointing, as I assume it went lost. it's ben three weeks now, I think, and it was sent by priority mail. If it hasn't arrived yet in a few days, I'll send a new one..

Strange happenings with the mail this round. ????

If you have not received your print, please contact me via email.

i've gotten seto's (great shot). mine is yet to be sent...but he knows. my local lab that i use (as i don't have a home darkroom anymore) just went from 11 employees to 3...so it takes a long time to get stuff back. really sad. i hope they can hang on in this lean configuration!!

Well, I have not received any email re: non-receipt of prints, so I guess everyone is fine with the progress so far. Or at least has things covered with their swap partner.

Print Swap 6 will be coming along the first week in May. DO NOT SIGN UP NOW however! I have not got the mailbox set up for it yet.

Tom, jvx and I are not quite done, as his print may be lost somewhere in transit. He figures if it doesn't make it by next Monday he'll shoot off a replacement. Looking forward to the next swap!

Raid, glad you got the email !

Steve, either on this or the #6 swap, you can check the rules and registration email on the web page Tom set up, you'll find it on the first post of this thread.

Steve,

You didn't email me, you sent me a PM. And although I received the notification you tried, I no longer accept PM's here because of the ridiculously small number allowed. Me trying to run these swaps through that bottleneck was absurd.

My email address is in my profile and on the PS Signup page..
