Having moved back up the Hill to the main Trafaglar Road campus of Sheridan, I decided to let one of the more photogenic of the four campuses be the subject for Week 49 (only fair since STC got to be the subject for Week 1). So to add some flare, I used polaroid cameras to capture the campus. Of course the Auto 250 got the most attention.
Polaroid Spectra – Impossible Project PZ680 Color Shade
Polaroid Automatic 250 Land Camera – FP-100c, FP-3000b
I’ll admit I had a hard time choosing my top seven for Week 7. I recently found out about Vivian Maier a Chicago Street Photographer in the 1950s and 1960s, and that she used a TLR, specifically a Rolleiflex for her work. Blown away by her style I decided that rather than bemone that she was far better that I, I took her works and used it for inspiration for week 7, taking to the streets of Toronto with my Rolleiflex, and a handful of Ilford HP5. I ended up shooting two rolls at Nathan Phillips Square, I am rather pleased to give you week 7, the streets.
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.
