    A new Gallery subject ???

    I made a quick search about this and it seems that noone has touched the subject on APUG before:

    I would like to talk about the first couple of frames on a 35mm roll, the ones we shoot while advancing the film to the first frame... there has been several exhibitions with those frames in the past (by avant-garde artists, of course...) and lots have been said about them (especially about the "unconscious" creative quality of them, using "surrealist" territory and theories).

    What about the creation of a new Gallery "space" in APUG, where every 35mil shooter will be able to post his/her "unconscious masterworks" ? I know I don't shoot 35mil that often (Claire, please no comments about my M3) but I think I might be able to find some really interesting ones... could you (all) ???

    I think it might be entertaining and instructive to see what pure luck gan give as a result (like if we gave cameras to a few chimps) sometimes... careful editing - of course - can be of great help to make the final result more interesting...

    So, how about it ?

    Hey, let's do it-sounds totally heavy dude!

    I don't know if it merits a gallery category (it would be up to Sean, ultimately), but it's an interesting idea, and you could certainly start a new thread for "start frames," and people could post them as attachments to posts, and if it becomes popular, we could make it a "sticky" thread.

    Darn, now I gotta remember to take off the lens cap when firing off that first "set" shot or two! Or maybe I could post mine to that "Darkness Photography" thread?

    What about not putting any film in your camera? Now that would be really interesting-"we have entered a netherworld where neither the illusion nor its armature prevail".
