Nutty idea- continuous portrait?
Sometimes I get nutty ideas, bear with me.
Recently I saw something quite clever, a person had run exposures together on a holga, by partially winding or taking out the winder or such. I am drawing a blank on the name of the young lady who did this, maybe Scott can remember her name, she was at Art-o-matic last year. Adrienne or something like that.
Anyway, it seems a fairly simple technique. And the result was quite special.
Hence my proposal: we get as many of us onto one roll as possible, continuously, without breaking the frame. A holga with winder ripped off or whatever is passed until the film ends. The roll of film captures a seamless group portrait, which will then be contact printed.
Now, I don't know if this is too hard. Might anybody have a holga and be able to comment on the likelihood of success? I mean, we'd have to roughly agree on exposure and such, but I think as long as the exposures overlap slightly, I guess the result will be of interest.
