The 52 Rolls of Film Project

So this year I've decided to challenge myself to shoot 1 roll every week for a year, something I like to call "The 52 Rolls of Film Project. Now I'd like to extend the challenge to the rest of you.

So this year I’ve decided to challenge myself to shoot 1 roll every week for a year, something I like to call "The 52 Rolls of Film Project. Now I’d like to extend the challenge to the rest of you. The only rule is the one I already mentioned, and that is to shoot 1 roll (and only 1 roll) per week for a year. By the end of the year you should have 52 rolls worth of pictures. Just shoot whatever you feel like. It can be documentary, purely artistic, or both. Color, B&W, infrared, cross processed: anything goes. Just shoot shoot shoot. But I repeat: ONLY 1 ROLL PER WEEK!!

    I agree with Matt, it's a cool idea, but I could never limit myself to one roll only... Maybe one roll per camera? >D Hmm...

    nice idea, though i couldn't limit myself to one roll a week when i travel around... then it's more likely a roll a day.
    do you process all the rolls at the end of the year or also one roll/week?

    Cool idea. I guess everyone else is gonna have to wait until next year if they wanna do it. And you can always limit it to a specific camera if you want so you can shoot other rolls in other cameras as sometimes one roll just isn't for many a lomographer.

    Agreed with @mattcharnock and @cyan-shine! - shoot far more than one a week. Or at least I think I do, hard to keep up!
