I am going to copy and paste the same info from last years Postcard Exchange, as everything pretty much stays the same. Dates are different however.



Hope we have lots of people wanting to play! Details are as follows:

1)   Sign up by September 15 if you want to play.
PM me your name and postal address with country and also your e-mail address.
I need your e-mail address to contact you since the forum only allows two private messages an hour.  If you don't send me your e-mail, it will take longer to get your list of names.

2)   Names will be sorted the week after sign-up closes.
Since we have Filmwasters from around the globe, I'll sort and divide the collected names into manageable groups (usually about 12 per group) to keep the cost of printing and postage at a manageable level. If you want to send to everyone who has signed up not just those on your list please let me know when you sign up. I will regularly update this topic with numbers of players.
Next I'll make a list of the sorted names and addresses and send them to everyone that signed up. Lists will be with you by october 1.

3)   Postcards should be sent out by October 30
Cards can be printed in the darkroom, with inkjet printers or commercially on any paper (6x4 or 5x7 inches is recommended)
The important thing is the negative used to make the print must be analogue capture be it film, paper negative or Instant film.

The subject matter is entirely up to you and it's not a competition either, so have fun with it!

You can send a copy of the same print to everyone on your list, or you can make different prints for each person, it's up to you.

Details about the image such as location, camera and film type/capture written on the back with a short message are appreciated but that's up to you.

Stamp, address and then sign the cards so we know who they are from and drop them in the mail.

This is always a lot of fun, so don't miss out.

Once again the important dates to remember are:

Sign up by September 15.
Postcards mailed by October 30

We need more people to sign up! We have eleven so far, but the more that sign up the more beautiful pieces of art you will receive in the mail.

I will be mailing out  the postcards that we already have sign ups for early because they are in recognition of the the ECLIPSE..those who haven't already signed up will still get the Eclipse postcards but they may not have commemorative postage... but they will get the postcard I made for the Eclipse..Hope that makes sense.

Also got your wonderful card with the eclipse stamp, Diane!  :)
Reminds me of how we watched the eclipse on our balcony over here in 1999.

Thanks Diane, I got the list and your post card.  Your post card is great, I hope mine doesn't disappoint.  I've been hard at work in my makeshift hotel darkroom making 4x5 contact prints.

It's a little crowded but I made it work pretty well.  Each time I want to make prints I have to take everything out of boxes, set it up, make prints then pack it all away again.  I took the top off the desk lamp for my darkroom light.  The nice thing is I can easily get this bathroom dark because there are no windows near it.  I just close the curtains at the other end of the room, turn off all the lights and throw a towel along the bottom of the door.

I can't leave anything out because of my cats, but the lower cupboard is large and I can put everything in there in between...and I have a safelight on a cord that I can plug in when needed! Works pretty darn well!

Spent Sunday night in the Darkroom too, all will be old matt G4 paper from 127 Negs (efke R100) from either a Coronet 4x4 or Eastman Bullet.  Away till later in the week when I'll get sticking and posting hopefully.
