I agree with David Hass, if the "girl" is trying out vintage scuba and afterall teaching the old ways to new divers is part of the fun then it is fine by me to include such pictures, female or male --but --I do NOT want to turn this into a pin up poster. If fat old men are what we got then fat old me it shall be---lol. Uh, my self---not--included---lol.
Nemrod<----sleek and streamlined and fast and not old (I don't think)
Examples of photographs not suitable for inclusion would be this one. This is the diver that said we don't know what we are doing and that "we are not very good dviers" quote. This would be the one that was also mentioned somewhere else.
Image of "tool" removed because it was simply to frightening
But it was an excellent of example of what we don't want and why we don't want it.
I think the pic was of that jerk from sucbaboring.com. You know the one that said we all sucked as divers and did not know what we were doing. He said all that but tried to ride VDH coat tails and take credit for SD3! What a JERK. There is a reason people call him "netdick" on his own site!
I removed the picture of the "tool" from scubaDIRboard.com that I posted as an example of a non vintage diver because it would distract us from the mission. It was sorta funny but also very distracting given the one real life run in with him had poor results and lot's of negative feelings.
The lady trying the scuba gear out is fine with me if we can get her permission to use the photo. As long as the photos we have convey the vintage community "flavor" that is great and the ones that you guys have provided and that Lisa has arranged all look wonderful.
I think we have made good progress and Lisa has done a super job of putting some great photos and ideas together. This is very exciting to be this close to a finished product.
Thank you Luis! I copy/pasted that line and never checked it. Someone already pointed out the equipment, thanks for catching the other. The rest should be good, but you're welcome to look. (photoshop has a spell checker too )
The last version I posted here isn't the most recent version, still some filing going on
justleesa sent me some samples from an online printing company they use in their buisness. They look pretty good though the paper is thicker than the local company I spoke with would use. I am not sure which is better. The 80 pound paper is used for standard pamphlets by the local companies and looks and feels like a typical brochure. The online version seems to be 100 pound and is a bit stiffer. I actually like the heavier paper better, what do you guys think?
The online priniting is cheaper on smaller volumes but the local company gets very competitive on larger runs and I could probably negotiate a bit more with them. The benifit is I can stand there and say--yes--I like it or no etc. Of course, we are talking around 500 dollars for about 2,000 units--approximate.
