The Fifty-Two Roll Project

Many people do a project 365 (where they post at least one photo per day for the entire year). I did actually consider doing this for 2011, but decided why not take my passion for shooting film and doing a roll (or pack) per week of film. Pick a camera, a lens, and a film shoot it in a week, take it in for processing, then post the best seven shots. Starting Jan 1st, 2011.

Here are my guidelines
1) Some weeks may have themes attached to them, the subject shot or equipment used must meet this theme.
2) It must be an analog photography format. (35mm, Medium Format (6×9, 6×6, 6×4.5), or Instant (Type 100 or Integral).
3) I must post at least 7 shots for the week, I may post more if I so desire.
4) A week starts on Saturday, Ends on Friday. Film from the week prior is brought in for processing on the Monday, Must be scanned, processed, and posted before the next film drop off (if possible).

If you have a suggestion for a theme (or constraint) please feel free to post in the comments.

  1. I just saw the post in the FPP group about this, and I think I’m going to have a go at this too, though I’m thinking in order to sharpen my skills I will be displaying all shots from all rolls. Hopefully this discourages me from taking 17 filler shots after I know I’ve got 7 good shots.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone who is taking part in this.

      Hm, that’s actually a very good idea! I always aim to shoot every shot to the best I can, but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way, you know?

      Hence why I gave myself an ‘out’ so to speak. I’ll probably end up posting more.


  2. So, when do we get to see some results from this 52 rolls of fun?
