Stuck in a Rut? Pdexposures.tv has a Challenge to Get Your Juices Flowing

1

Focusing on all aspects of analogue photography, the new web show pdexposures.tv premiered last week. The third installment is aimed at anyone having trouble finding the motivation to go out and shoot. You're not alone. And here is a fun way to get excited about taking your camera for a walk.

In episode three of their new show, Nate and Ben want to present you with a challenge to fight the trouble of finding the motivation to go out and shoot. They devised a simple challenge for you to try. The best part? Any camera, and lens, any film can be used! The only stipulation is you can’t leave one city block until the roll is all finished!

pdexposures.tv is made by Nate Matos and Ben Davis. Originally, pdexposures was started by Nate as an outlet for his work in photography. You might have come across some of his youtube videos in the past in which he discusses different aspects of analogue photography and gives hints and tips.
