Project {24}

I will be starting a new series titled "{24}," and no, it isn't the TV series that stars Kiefer Sutherland.... although, that is quite the mental picture :)  This series will be based on 35 mm film and that traditionally, you have 24 exposures per roll.  Sometimes you have more, sometimes you have less, but on average ~ 24 exposures.  What do you take photos of when you have a limited number?  How do you handle not being able to experiment as you can do with digital photography?

It does make you think a bit more.  Here are my guidelines that I will "try" to stick to:

  • Only taking one photo per subject
  • Creating a theme for that roll
  • Taking the time to make sure that photo is the one I want to take
  • Once the roll is complete, I will publish all 24 shots on the blog (even if there are ones I don't like or that don't pass my critical eye).  Scouts honor, you will see all 24 on here.

My first theme is "Summer."  I encourage you to join me if you would like!  What does summer mean to you?  What activities do you enjoy doing during the summer?  What summer traditions do you have?  Be creative and enjoy the challenge!

The last time I shot film was shortly after we moved back in 2013.  Here is the link for some of those photos: {FILM} 35mm Style.
