    35mm Shoot 1 prime/month, 1/3rd keepers challenge?

    Greetings,

    Just a bit of a thought - Would anyone be interested in a shoot and post pictures challenge?

    The idea is that the participants shoot with the same prime lens for the month and one roll of film. From that roll, they must produce 12 shots to be displayed on the forum? (this is also why I think it would better suit 35mm)

    Any takers?

    (& yes, I have 'borrowed' this idea from another well know Minolta/Sony forum....)

    I like it, but if you specified a 12 exposure roll of film folks might actually learn something.

    I think the rules are a bit unclear, at least a bit undefined, to me. Do they shoot with the same one prime, OR, do they select a prime they - individually - own, and then shoot with that?

    Sounds interesting except I think going to three solid keepers might be more reasonable and perhaps less boring in the end, what do you think?

    They could make the 12 frames a series, or have some other relation.

    Individual participants each nominate a prime lens of their own, that will be the only lens they shoot with for the month.
    Mamiya 645 Super | Nikon F4/F100 | Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 7/X-700/X-500/XD7/SRT-101 | Pentax Spotmatic | Canonet QL 19 (GII) | and a whole bunch of glass

    I agree with rich815. If you have 50 participants, there would be 600 pix to look at. What if 100 people took part?
    I'm definitely interested.

    I wouldn't have problem shooting with only 1 prime. It doesn't seem to be a too much of a disadvantage. Hehe, I don't shoot well either way any way.

    Yes, only three. One must learn to edit in cold blood, or you get the flickr syndrome.

    Sounds interesting. Should we all choose a film and developer too
