1 morning - 1 roll of film (well technically an SD card) - 24 shots.
We live in a world of ever changing technological advances. Every week new cameras are being released. Larger sensors, more megapixels and ever expanding storage solutions are but to name a few of the advances digital cameras have taken over the years. We even have flying cameras!! (More on that in a later blog post …)
I’m sure this has probably been done many times before, by many different photographers, but a challenge was set. 1 morning, 1 roll of film. In a world of digital photography, where hundreds of photographs can be stored on a single memory card, we often tend to stop considering every shot and become a bit complacent. As photographers, after a shoot, we can often return home to many disappointing images and maybe have 1 image we like. After previously working with film throughout my BA Photography course, shooting on film meant that you have a limit. Every shot has to be carefully considered. I wanted to take a step back and make every shot count.
Ok, so I didn’t shoot on film, but the challenge was there to use the equivalent of 1 35mm film roll. 1 morning, 1 camera, 1 lens, 24 shots. A very chilly start meant a lovely hoar frost was had - could I have asked for better conditions?! Not happy with a few of the images- what looks good through the viewfinder can often look a bit disappointing on screen, but happy that I have a few ‘keepers’. Overall it has been a great challenge to slow down, take a step back and be limited to a number of shots.
