Wet Plate Day 2010, it's official.

May 1, 2010

For now you can download the promotional poster here (this saves me data traffic on the wetplateday-website).

Spread the word and have fun.

I hope every one is well and getting ready to make some really nice plates on the 1st.  I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's work.  I have a quick question about Wet Plate Day.  Can we upload the image on Monday, is there a date the upload has to be completed by or does it have to be done on May 1st.  The reason I ask is that I don't have access to a scanner at home and have to wait until Monday to scan the image shot on the 1st. 

 

Thanks

Daniel

Tucson is ready!  Sorta.... I didn't get as big a thing going as I'd planned, but we'll shoot over at Mark's house, and I have at least one model lined up. 

I assume you are going to allow uploads for this year's batch again Geert-Jan? Let me know if you want help doing the admin on it again.

As far as loading pictures last year we didn't have any time restriction, at least for a few weeks.

Thank you Garret, this year no Scotland for me. We are at home. I don't expect any troubles so I think I'll manage on my own.

Restrictions are 2 images with a maximum filessize of 250 kb (just like last year)
As for last date for entries: The deadline for the book, probably.

No limits here. Whatever you can squeeze in 250kb filesize at acceptable quality for web (72 ppi).

For the book is a different matter. But thats not my department. I don't know the specs on that one.

I'll be leading a WP workshop in Philadelphia on the first and second. Exciting to be spreading the word on the big day. Hopefully I'll have something to contribute.

Anybody in town... come on down.

It's like riding a bike right? lol....
Life kind of sucked me in and pulled me away from the dark arts.
BUT, this has pulled me back in.
I got my chems ready, now I need to set up the dark box.
Tomorrow will be trial by fire, but I'm gonna see what happens :)

I think my last session was last july......whewwww.....how time flies.
Anyway, the smell of ether once again looms.....
Best of luck to everyone.

I'm gonna have to get creative if I want to pour any plates as it's blowing a gale outside my place today and NOT conducive to good results! Will see what I can come up with...
