UPDATE #2: Thanks for everyone that participated! I am not able to take any more print orders as I travel. Those of you who missed the chance I think I will open up the floor again in December for prints so check back then for more!
UPDATE: all the auction prints below are now being sold on a first come first serve basis, see this post for more info.
Well, the time has come, I have chosen five film images to offer as prints for this sale to raise money for living expenses on my trip to india. They are being offered as the first edition of them being available to anyone in print form and many of you who follow the site know that the opportunity does not come up too often.
The images below will be printed as 8×12 prints, a size that will maintain the original aspect ratio of the 35mm negatives. While I considered a larger size I feel this is a good size for a 35mm print not too small but not so big that the small negative starts to show its limits. They will be printed at a trusted high quality local print shop on glossy paper because, personally, I feel glossy prints work best with color images nicer color, contrast and sharpness. I can provide further info on that if you would like to know. Keep in mind that the printed images may vary slightly in color, saturation, and contrast as not all computer screens will present these the same.
For the pricing, I have decided to put these up for sale for one week as an auction hosted myself here on the site. I will start the biding for each print at $35 USD and each day I will post the current price it is going for and on the last day there will be no crazy last minute bidding war like on ebay, I will simply take the highest offer.
Please submit your bids to john(at)fiftyfootshadows.net (bidding will be in USD)
The Auction will end on Sunday November 1st at midnight (Eastern US time) and I will send the high bidder for each image a Paypal mail asking for the amount of the ending price. Shipping will be included if it is within the U.S. but if is outside of the U.S. I will add $5 for shipping via airmail. I will ship them on Wed Nov 4th.
In addition to this I will also make available any desktop image here on fiftyfootshadows as either an 8×12 for $25 during this week only. I will collect orders for them and ship them on Wed Nov 4th as well. I will let you know if for some reason I don’t have an image available as a print from the desktop selection for various reasons and this excludes the desktops made from film images.
Thanks so much for your support everyone! Every little bit counts right now and I am happy to finally offer a few photos as prints to readers and I hope you guys enjoy the opportunity. All the best and I will keep you updated here on this post as the week moves forward.
