Labor Day Same/Same/Same Shoot N Soup

  • Sep 2, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Another Same/Same/Same Shoot N Soup!


Everybody will start with a 35mm film camera shooting the same film stock.  Cameras, lenses, and film stock will be provided.  We will all shoot the same area/subject in the morning, relocate to the Hathaway residence for lunch, and then we'll all develop our film in Curt's darkroom.

For our subject, we'll be shooting the Pleasant Grove Campground, which is a 180-year-old 'campground' where religious services are held each July.  There are 80+ 'tents' which are actually small cabins that families stay in during the week of camp meeting.  The tents range from very modern vacation homes (boring) to dirt-floored shacks nailed together out of whatever was available.  In the center of the circle of 'tents' is The Arbor, a recently restored timber frame (kinda) open-air church building.

We will have access to tent 24 for potty breaks.

The campground is a little tricky to find.  The street address listed will get you close, but if your GPS can get you to the intersection of Billy Howey and Pleasant Grove roads, you'll be right at the campground.  We will meet at 8:30 at 'tent' 24.  There should be plenty of room to park.  If you can't find tent 24 but you DO find the campground, just park and walk into the interior of the campground...

    Too bad....I liked the idea of having them up on Flickr. Maybe it would've been OK to just upload the photos directly to the CPG meetup site for this meetup.

    Curt, tell me how I can get the scans....I've got a Dropbox and Box.com account and a couple of other options that should make it an easy transfer. I'll worry about getting the film itself next time I see you. You can email me offline.

    Now, I've got some 6x7 film to scan today....what fun.

      TW...I've got two email addresses for you...which one would you prefer?

      October 5, 2013

  • Curt H.

    All,

    I can send your individual files via YouSendIt. My email address is chathaway at providencepartners dot net. Just drop me a line and I'll forward a download link for your pics.

    Thanks.

    Curt

      what do you think? ...like them?

      October 5, 2013

  • Curt H.

    more apologizes...that was a bad idea...I've rec'd some negative feedback on that idea and have deleted the Flickr account...I really have no interest in stealing anyone's photos...so if you'd like your film, please let me know and I'll do everything in my power to get it to you...if you'd like the files, I'll send those along too...we won't be doing this again...

    best,

    Curt

      Curt, if you'll email me outside the meetup board, I'll send you my address, if you'd be so kind as to mail me the film and CD. I'll reimburse you for the postage, I'm sure it's cheaper than driving down there from Mooresville, LOL! My email is Dina at Dembicki dot com. THANKS!

    All, I apologize. I've been contacted by a few of this week about the files from our Meetup. The files were uploaded to a Flickr group that Wes set up the day I rec'd them from the lab...mid-Sept...the 11th I think. The following link is to the intermediate site that I set up to get them into the group (the files have to reside in a Flickr account before they can be added to a group). I have the low res files and your film if you'd like to have them.

    Hey Curt, have you had a chance to get the film transferred to CD yet? no rush, just wondering. Can't wait to see them!

    September 9, 2013

    • Curt H.

      Dina, They're being scanned and will be posted tomorrow...

      September 10, 2013

    • Dina

      Hi Curt--where can I find the images? On the Flickr group, or did you make a new group for these?

  • Dina

    Curt, thanks so much for the hospitality!

    Love these Shoot N Soup meetups. The concept of same camera/film/limited subject matter makes you really think to try come up with something unique....not that we always succeed. Plus I like the smell of Xtol developer on my hands. :-) As usual, Curt and Wes presided over a well-run meetup and Curt and family were gracious hosts. It was fun dragging my wife along and "exposing" her to a more basic form of photography....I heard very little kicking and screaming from her as she got in to the spirit of the thing.

    Yes you are right Dee.It should be B/w.
    but I still like to know the purpose of using 35mm film.

    August 27, 2013

    • Dee G.

      Joseph, first I apologize to everyone for taking the liberty of discussing someone else's idea. I am sure that if anybody can provide dozen identical Hasselblads, or Mamiyas or something else with format different that 35 mm we can happily do the meetup using them cameras. But then you will have the limit of 8,12 or 16 frames only since we are shooting one film each. (Spy size Minox-es and 16 mm film don't apply here - they are too rare).So the possibilities will be limited even more for folks accustomed to multi-frame shooting with their digital cameras. I believe those are good reasons, don't you?

      Oh, did I forget to mention 8x10 cameras with wet plates like the ones Scott is experimenting with right now?

      August 27, 2013

  • Curt H.

    Joseph, the idea behind the meetup is to level the playing field a bit and to introduce / reintroduce photographers to film. By using the same camera, lens and B&W film the meetup becomes more about perspective and vision...something a bit more basic. Limiting ones choices to 36 shots tends to slow the shooter down and forces one to consider composition, depth of field, use of light, shadow, patterns, leading lines, etc. We will supply you with a camera, lens, film and the guidance necessary to develop your work if you've been out of the darkroom for a while. We'll then have your work scanned and provide you with the digital files and the film.

    I bet it will be B&W, color is too much headache to develop at home

    1 · August 27, 2013

  • joseph

    What is the purpose of taking film and not digital.

    1 · August 27, 2013

  • joseph

    Can we use our own 35mm film camera.is there any 35mm film to use.
    are we using B/W or color.

  • Rebecca D.

    How long total will this event be?

    1 · August 27, 2013

    • Wes

      I would count on having film developed and in your hands at 1:30 or 2:00. This is a pretty low-key event, so if you've got a specific timeline to meet, let us know and we'll adjust as needed. No worries...

  • Dee G.

    Sure, my friend Terry -ble; do that. Yo may have hard time finding any crappy pictures in your work but if you do - go ahead. That's what buddies are for ;) That's not my real name anyways........

  • Dee G.

    Sorry I have to miss it - I'll be away.

    August 14, 2013

    • Terry W.

      Mind if I assign all my crappy photos to your name...and all my outstanding works of photographic art to my name? Too bad you're going to miss.....I think I'll be dragging my wife along to this one, kicking and screaming no doubt. :-)
