I was reading a thread where someone was talking about a negative they had that they could never get the best out of, and it gave me the idea to do another variation on the Monthly Shooting Assignment/Print Exchange. The idea would be that each member of the group shoots as many copies of a single frame as there are participants (I don't really care how you produce it, whether you shoot one negative and then dupe it, or shoot the identical frames in-camera). Make one print for yourself, and put it aside. Mail a copy of the negative to each member of the group. When you get the negatives from the other members, make two prints of each one, as you see fit to crop, burn, dodge, tone, or otherwise tweak. Keep one copy for yourself and return the other copy to the sender, along with their negative. When it's all said and done, everyone in the group will have one copy of each person's image, and multiple copies of their own, done in the style of each other member. I'll see about getting a new gallery set up (and perhaps an account to post the scans so they don't come out of everyone's gallery quota). For basics, to keep this simple, I'm recommending several restraints on the process: A: everyone shoots the same format film (I'm thinking 2 1/4 square, as this is a very common format, but it could be 6x7, 6x4.5 or 35mm. We can discuss this and reach consensus before we start) B: all prints are made to the same paper size (I'm thinking 8x10, to limit the printing cost, shipping cost and scanning difficulties) C: we limit the number of participants (I'm thinking 12, which jives well with the 2 1/4 square format, and keeps the logistics and postal costs reasonable as well) D: everyone commits to turning these around in a reasonable time (shoot the negative and mail it out within three weeks of the start of the project, and make and mail your prints within three weeks of receipt to the other participants, so this isn't dragging on until next year) Anyone interested, please respond in this thread.
