I remember reading something that Brooks Jensen wrote, something about him wondering when we'll get to the point where we sell raw files to other photographers for them to print. All the benefits to the learner, yet none of the risks to the negative. I think I'd have a tough time pulling off "Moonrise, Hernandez" from a scan of the negative.
Buy you know what? I'd love to try.
I'm curious if on some image that I feel is just "not quite there", if someone else could pull it off. I'm also curious if I could pull off the same job on an image that someone else has.
Here is what I'm proposing:
People sign up to participate on this thread.
Everyone that participates will contribute 1 raw file that they are willing to put in the public domain
(but still, no cats please) along with their own development of that raw file.
Everyone that participates will be assigned 2 raw files to process.
The photographer's original rendering of the image along with the 2 other renderings will be gathered and posted in the same post once they are all collected and the exchange has finished.
I have server space (VPS) I would be willing to use to host and exchange the raw data (unless the volumes became too large - then we'd have to find something else)
I expect the timeline would be a month or more from end to end.
Some people have hangup about working other people's negatives/files. Think of it more as a workshop with peer review!
