On the podcast we recorded last night and which will hopefully be out next week we kicked off a new project/challenge. One of the main obstacles for people shooting film is the belief that it's going to be expensive, largely because of the cost of film and developing that film, but also just buying any kit in the first place. To see if we can disprove this we've set ourselves and anyone else who's up for it the following challenge: To buy both a camera of any size or shape AND film with a maximum budget of £20. This has to include any postage costs incurred, but not the cost of developing the roll of film. YOU CANNOT USE A CAMERA OR FILM CURRENTLY IN YOUR POSSESSION! To shoot pictures for the genre randomly drawn from a box (I pulled the different categories from the list on 500PX...I didn't include nude because obviously) At the end of the challenge period of about a month (or buy episode 11) submitted pictures will be judged by an impartial 3rd party and points awarded. In the future when we return to this, another genre category will be drawn and an additional budget of £10 will be allocated to buy more film or other bits as needed. Points will be carried forward and when we're done/bored with this idea the winner will be given praise and love above all others. Hopefully that's all really straightforward and obvious, £20 (or $27, or 2677 yen, which sounds like A LOT) buy a camera and film, take picture on a theme, share your best shots, the end Even if you aren't usually a film shooter, why not give this a go? Worst case scenario you end up with a camera shaped ornament that cost no more than £20. Anyway, the first category pulled out of the hat/box last night was... Street Photography! Easier for some than others, like me. @Chris I really hope you join in with this, with all the camera shops and bloody streets you should crush it.
