Dear Ravi & Vikas,

Thanks for organising the wonderful print meet yesterday! One of the best, I guess. A few snippets from the meet are here below.

Pardon me for the ghost rendering in images - I blame it on panorama software on my phone. I am sure Ravi and others have better images.

It was great to meet all of you. Nice to see Vidyun and Vihaan enjoying and discussing nuances of printing! I could see a smile on Vidyun's face holding his own WPY young photographer of the year award print made by Nevil. Thanks again Nevil for sending us the wonderful prints.

Thanks to Ramesh, Prashanth, Shankar Kiragi, Raj and Nagraj for sharing their fine prints.

I enjoyed Ramesh's new set of B&W prints, well presented in cost effective frames. Raj's manual contact prints from large format was interesting. I would love to see some larger prints next time if possible. Prashanth's subtle prints from Bharatpur made me nostalgic. Shankar Kiragi shared his wonderful very creative prints made using different colored papers and cutting and joining prints made using different colored papers.
I think this is very unique! Thanks for sharing, Shankar.

I enjoyed small elegant B&W print collection shared by Nagraj.

Overall we had a great print meet!

Considering the unique body of work we have as a forum, Ramesh also made a suggestion do a CNP print exhibition of about 50 prints (to be curated by an artist/photographer who is not a member of CNP) in some reputed galleries like (CKP/NGMA/others), may be every year. Prashanth also mentioned this small exhibition may be hosted in different cities/small towns.
CNP editorial team may further discuss this and count on others help to realise this in the future (may be 6months+ from now)..

We encourage more people to print (even small prints which can be cost effective). If you don't have a good printing services in your own town/city we may help you connect you with a printing service provider (whom some of us regularly use here in Bangalore) to get your prints done and get it shipped to you.

Looking forward to the next print meet. Madhav has already volunteered to share his prints!!

Dear all,

Thank you for the nice words about the meet. Honestly this CNP Print meet was made special thanks to CNP(Creative n Novel Prints!). Thank you Shankar, Ramesh, Raj, Nagaraj, Prashanth for bringing in wonderful photographs/prints.

Now it is upto Madhav and others to put pressure on me & Vikas to arrange the next print meet by saying prints are ready!

Regards,
Ravi & Vikas

Thank you all for attending the meet and it was very nice to see different prints in different sizes and in different papers :) After every meet, i take back loads of knowledge treasure and ponder over it for days.
Some of the highlights of the meet are :
- We had a couple of members who were not part of CNP but still wanted to attend the meet and to be part of the discussion.
- Prashanth travelled almost 400+ kms to atted the meet and he is waiting to attend the next print meet.
- RD took the prints of Shankar to home and spent more than half a day to go through those unique images and ponder over.

It was very interesting idea from Ramesh on exhibiting a few prints of CNP in one of the reputed galleries and the editorial team has a good amount of work to make this happen.

BTW whenever the members of CNP meet (either for Print meet or for any other reasons) there are loads of information exchange, candid feedbacks and lots and lots of fun . The discussions are are so interesting that both Vidyun and Vihaan (young CNPians) never miss any of the meets where CNPians are involved

Here are some of the points for next print meet :
Madhav has to start printing as soon as possible as he has volunteered (forcibly) to bring the prints for the next meet.
Prashanth will be arriving a week early so that the prints are not rolled over.
Shankar will have Print Saloon with more colors and cuts.

Thank you Ramesh, Raj, Shankar, Prashanth, Nagraj and Ganesh for bringing the prints. Hope to see lot more CNPians attending the future meets.

Thanks
Vikas

Wonderful, interactive, fun filled, variety of prints was the key highlight of the event. Thanks to Vikas & Ravi for making this happen.
We would like to see more participants from our members. There are many excellent images from CNPians and we would like to see them on paper.
And yes, without prints photography is incomplete.

High quality B&W images from Ramesh were treat for the eyes especially with frames.
Raj's conventional contact prints with nice lighting and tonal range brought back the memories of film development and printing.
I had pre-visualised Prashant's high key images on print which looked moody, presence of tranquillity as expected. Prashant, please print more of your high key subtle images
Nagraj's (old friend of mine since 2000 from YPS days) presented his 4"x4" tiny but elegant images with nice sense of aesthetic in them.
Youngsters (Vidyun & Vihan) view/feedback on prints was a difference.

Thank you all for the feedback on my new conceptual prints and presentation.
To continue my endeavour in making the prints unique, I will make few B&W transparencies, also advance level of paper colour choice based on images and relative contrast choice.

Warm Regards
Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

Wow.. Though I was not there I feel the idea of an Exhibition across multiple cities, is quite energetic and amazing. it may push photographers to make a print of their work(including me). Also Couldn't miss the curious two little faces :)
