This past weekend, I flew down to Miami to do a photowalk with some fellow film photographers. They're pretty passionate about film and film photography, they even self published a book of group member photographs (Tom and I were talking about something like this for our group, if anyone would be interested). During our walk, they had brought up some of the ideas and projects they're working on, when the topic of film swaps came up (we also talked about doing a camera swap as well), I told Mat (Miami's organizer) that I would see how much interest in doing something like this would generate, then I would get back with him. What do y'all think? Film swaps are fun, especially the randomness that the double exposures can create. I'm going to leave this open right now for suggestions and comments.
How does this work?
Someone in Miami shoots one roll of film, rewinds it and ships it to someone in Dallas, then that person shoots it again and develops it.
We will post all photos and then vote for the best one!
Both shooters will win cool Lomography prizes!
It’s all about double-exposing creative fun, planning or not planning what to shoot and expecting the unexpected!!!
All Mat and I are doing is connecting film shooters from Miami with Dallas, you guys take it from there and push your limits.
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE RULES THOROUGHLY BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR ENTRY
First RSVP here on the Meetup page! (Deadline is September 1st!!!)
We will then randomly link you with another shooter from Miami and let you two exchange information.
Please specify if you will be shooting 135 or 120 and C-41 or B&W!!!
One will be defined as 1st shooter and will supply the roll of film and postage, and send it to the assigned team member. The other will be defined as 2nd shooter and will take care of the film processing and submission via email of the digital copies.
If you are the 1st shooter, you must shoot the entire roll of film and send it by mail by September 14th.
Once you’re done shooting, rewind the film so that the leader tab is still out! and mail it to your partner in crime.
If you are the 2nd shooter, you must reshoot the entire roll, process it and email photos by October 12th.
Be creative! Have fun with it! Win Prizes!
Please email digital copies of the photos to [masked]
You must enter the contest by September 1st and you have until October 14th to send us your photos.
