Story of a Print and Print Swap

In the age of the digital cameras, we seldom think about the printing process. The joy of actually holding a print in your hand while you talk about the picture is something else and a print lets an audience see the picture in a different light. Let’s get together and share the story behind a printed picture. Bring a print (8x10 minimum, good quality print) that is meaningful to you, that has a story behind it, and/or is significant to you in any other way. Each of us will show the print, share the story and pass it on to the rest for viewing. After viewing all the prints we will end the night with a print swap which makes this event all the more fun! Please check out the rules for this event.

Rules:

1. Please bring only one print, this will likely be your favorite picture shot by you and likely has a story behind it. We know it’s hard to chose just one sometimes but that’s what makes things interesting.

2. Prints must be at least 8x10 in size. Remember whoever ends up getting your print should be able to frame it and display it.

3. Print must be of good quality. Think about what kind of print you would like to receive from others and print your picture accordingly.

4. This will not be a critique session. While positive comments are always welcome, restrain the negative ones.

 

As always don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

    Thanks everyone for sharing your prints and stories (especially to Chris who printed a beautiful Manistique lighthouse-scape that will soon be adding life to my drab walls)! I enjoyed this event immensely and look forward to future gatherings!

    Let's post some places where we can get the prints from. Feel free to recommend something you prefer. Huron Cameras, Costco, WHCC are the ones I've heard of so far.

    Are 8x10 tintypes and or ambrotypes on glass OK?

  • Doug

    Should I just take a picture or negative or digital file to Huron Camera and have them do it (blow it up and have them print it)? Is this the easiest way for me to do it?

    August 20, 2013

    • Kiran B.

      I think that would work and we should have 10% discount too. Also Katie mentioned Costco did a good job too. I personally use WHCC for prints but setting up an account with them takes a while...

    Rats, this sounds like a good one, but I'll be shooting in the U.P. and tied-up for the first two weeks in Oct. Maybe do it again at the end of Dec.? Nice idea! [Although I also enjoy it when an artist fabricates the story/interpretation of their work... if the piece is a true work of art, it stands on its own; stories can be an interesting aside, whether they're fact or fiction. But don't tell ____. Have fun!]

    August 19, 2013

    • Kiran B.

      I agree that the picture should say the story itself... but there is always a little behind the scenes story which doesn't necessarily get captured on the film/sensor. I think it would be very interesting to hear those stories. Fact or fiction is left to the interpreter :-). I'm sure we'll have these events again...

      August 19, 2013

    • Patrick M.

      It would be interesting to talk about how the images speak to the viewer before hearing the "true" story as well. Then the photographer can gauge the image's impact. There's a million ways to do it, just like any interactive workshop, and it will be a riot!

    Such a cool idea Kiran! I need to decorate :)
