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 ROLLPERWEEK!!
