I've been challenged to take part in an analog photo challenge and I thought it was going to be easy, Boy was I wrong. First it took me 6 attempts just to locate the camera. Then find a location to randomly take 27 photos then to top it off I have to locate someone/company willing to develop the film within 1 weeks time. The challenge has proven to be harder than I would have liked it. In fact I went through steps 1 & 2 successfully, but step three has been extremely difficult and I've just sent out the disposable camera for development. The developer said they can have the images back to me before the 27ths so that I can beat my deadline.
This challenge has rekindled something within me that has been lost since 1986. The taking of pictures and having to wait for the results. We've all become lazy due to this digital world and some times we just need to get back in touch with the true meaning of analog photography.
You have one day to locate/buy the camera at a retailer near you, then you have one day at a location of your choosing to take the required 27 pictures. Then you have 1 week to have the film developed. All those participating need to report in saying they found the camera on such and such date. This is in an effort to let others know they are participating in the challenge.
- Locate/buy a kids 35mm disposable camera (waterproof/card board)
- Make sure that you tape over the camera's view finder
- Use the single roll of film up at a single location (max 27 exposures)
- Have the film developed within 1 weeks time (Personal film processing/developing is not allowed)
- The film can be shot in color, but must be submitted in black & white. The images can not be altered or enhance with photoshop etc
This challenge will technically begin Monday (Aug 23rd, 2021) at 9 am est and end 1 week from that date. I'm giving you Sat to locate the camera & Sunday to find a location to take the pictures. Image can not be submitted before the end date or those images will be disqualified.
Be warned, it's going to be extremely difficult to locate a developer who can have this film for you within 1 week time frame.
