Film Swap

Swap with @pussylove NZ-France

My film swap obligations are currently all done. I’m keen to do another, any takers?

Swap with @traaaart USA-NZ

The further away the better, I’d like somewhere snowy perhaps, somewhere with mountains..? All offers will be considered!

    Again, I'm not far away at all and it's not snowing in Oz at the moment...AND when it is winter, I'll probably be heading to NZ to snowboard anyways...but I can definitely do mountains (sans snow)

    switzerland, yo! i don't know how long the snow will last, because we just got over freezing point today. after 2 weeks of terribly cold sibirian winter. but i guess i'll be in the mountains soon again :D

    sorry what does it mean exactly "swap"?

    @peter_jurrett each person in 'the swap' agrees on the type of film they are going to use then they shoot the film in an agree camera (mostly). Each person posts their film to the other, re-exposing it and creating a film of double exposures. This makes the multiples completely random - sometime not so good and some times genius. In my opinion, and my personal taste, they work much better with textures, landscapes, not so with people - though a few in my recent set with @traaaart were excellent. What is without doubt is the darker the subject, the more unexposed area there is for both shots to fill and create the most interesting shots.

    Contrast between countries and cultures make for excellent results. The eiffel tower of paris vs the mock queen street of auckland with @pussylove was very cool, as was urban greensboro vs beachy auckland with @traaaart. I'd never felt inclined to bother with my own multiple exposures, but these unplanned bits of genius rocked!

    I can do a film swap, UK or HK, but they are unlikely to be snowy. Drop me a message if you are interested.

    hello Adam...I am currently in Finland...and of course here you can find as much snow as you wish. The film swap might be fun, although I am right now in the middle of my little photo project, anyway I would like to try and swap some films. Have a nice day! Erika

    I would be keen too - in a couple of weeks I'll be arriving in Arequipa, Peru. Lots of colonial architecture surrounded by snow-capped volcanic peaks. A very dramatic landscape that I'm sure will be very photogenic!

    I'm late to the party, but being from California, I can offer more summer time wonderment if you're up to a swap later on down the line. I only own a Holga 120 cfn atm, but I'm eying a Diana in the future, so my films are mostly 120.
