    Posting this a bit late, really; I meant to suggest it earlier. But, as per the title, is anyone else in F&C taking part in FP4party?

    The general idea, for those who don't know about it, was to shoot as much FP4 as possible during "shoot week" (a couple of weeks ago now), then get it devved in "dev week" and post the results on twitter in "post week", which is this week, tagged with #fp4party. A group is forming a shortlist from shots each day, and participants will get to vote on the winner after the end of post week (24th December). The twitter account organising it is @FP4Party.

    There are some very nice shots being posted (about 120 per day so far)...

    They have other parties from time to time, so I will try to remember to suggest joining in. However there was a suggestion that next would be HP5party, and HP5 is not a film I like.

    I also don't like HP5 but I really love FP4, so I'm sad I didn't know about it. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos from it though, sounds like there's a lot to look through!

    Sorry I didn't mention it earlier then!

    I've just remembered that twitter seems to have a problem sometimes with images when searching for #fp4party. To see all the images, you might need to change your twitter settings to allow display of "sensitive" images (IIRC).

    I've seen some great results from HP5 in larger formats, but sadly I shoot pretty much exclusively in 135, where I often find the grain too obtrusive. However, I suppose it would be worth a roll, which is part of the point I reckon!

    If I'd known I'd have thrown a spanner in the works with another of my colour FP4 composites. If only I could find my spare dark green gelatine filter to replace the one that blew away and landed, of course, in long green grass where I could not find it.

    You can enter anything that was shot in Shoot Week (4-10 December) on FP4+... no need to pre-register or anything, so if you've got one that fits, go for it!

    From @FP4Party:

    "* BREAKING NEWS UPDATE *
    Day 1 - 120 images posted
    Day 2 - 118 images posted
    Day 3 - 129 images posted
    Day 4 - 124 images posted
    Day 5 - 114 images posted
    Day 6 - 90 images posted

    One day left in #FP4PARTY post week. Make it count everyone!!!"

    So, last day of Post Week for FP4Party! I had aimed for one a day but threw in a few extra this morning (why not). Twitter search for #fp4party, but as noted above you might need to change Twitter settings to accept sensitive images to see them all (even definitely non-sensitive ones!). Seems like a bit over 100 images have been posted most days:

    @FP4Party sent this tweet a little while ago:

    "Judges will compile a shortlist for publishing (most likely in January) and party peeps will vote for their favorite from the list. Based on the results from our recent poll, the next party will be in January. Dates will be published within the next 2 - 3 days."

    So yes, there will be another FP4Party soon. If there's interest, maybe we could make it a side challenge, adding a #TPFandC tag as well as #fp4party (I checked; it appears that #TPFC is used by a few different groups). Anyone up for that?

    That's a bit earlier than I was expecting, but at least confirms I should load another roll of FP4!

    Odd, FP4Party Retweeted it - but was not on my list of Tweets - so retweeted it to myself - I can see it now.

    Apparently, according to my IT consultant (son), if you have the @ sign as the first character of a Tweet it goes as a semi-private message. So need to put any character except an @ or a space at the beginning. So that is today's lesson.

    I've added a thread with my FP4party shots in it over one the F&C images sub-fourm. D'you want to add yours, @dmb?

    Here's a couple that I rather liked: one of the several Kenilworth Castle in the snow shots...

    ... and one of the sledging shots...

    Both taken with Pentax MX, Vivitar 35-70 zoom and FP4+ (of course).

    Thanks, Nige. I called it "Echo", with reference in my mind to the shape of the branch and the sledge. Cheesy I know.

    So the next FP4party starts in 2 days time! All you need is to take pics with FP4 in those 7 days, choose the better ones and post them in the period Jan 15-21! That's not hard. We could also add the hashtag #TPFandC as well as #FP4party!

    Happy New Year everyone! Found out a bit more about FP4party etc... @whatsbehindthat tweeted:

    "#fp4party is done kinda monthly. February is redscale time #BIFscale18 (look at #BIFscale17 for examples) end of April I think is Pinhole day. in summer there is the #SummerFilmParty, that is done more or less with the same rules of the #fp4party. can't remember more :D"

    And somewhere in there is #deltadefjam!

    Not sure I can do FP4party monthly!

    EDIT: and, I discover, #neopantastic and #Tmaxparty!

    Sorry I didn't answer this, Nige. You just post them on Twitter with a #FP4Party hashtag... but during Post Week, which was something like 15-21 January.

    I'm a bit shocked to discover my very last, throw it at the wall to make up the numbers image was shortlisted for voting: see https://emulsive.org/articles/fp4party/the-best-of-fp4party-january-2018

    Though I'm sure @ChrisR would not say it himself - get on over to the link and vote for our guy.
