On May 29th I participated in a worldwide photo challenge started by a Mr. Scott Kelby, a photographer that I both respect and learn a lot from. I will lay out the basic rules of the challenge here before I go into how I shot them.
- You have to shoot either 24 or 36 exposures as that used to be the standard sizes for a roll of 35mm film.
- You have to cover the LCD of your camera so that you can't see any settings or change any menu options.
- ISO cannot be changed throughout the entire challenge as ISO was a part of the film and not a camera option.
- The images cannot be reviewed in any way for a day as that was the time you used to have to wait for them to process.
- There can be no photoshopping or editing of any kind
- You must make at least one print
So with these rules in place I set out yesterday with a beautiful lady as an assistant and walked through town for about 3 hours in the heat shooting 24 exposures with duct tape over my LCD, my ISO set to 400 and my D60 set to Black & White. The next 5 photos are the results of this challenge. I will post each of them in succession over the next 4 days with this same text and a comment at the bottom about the photo itself. Hope you enjoy this experiment as much as I did.
My wonderful assistant Kristy helped me out by modeling for this one. It seemed like such a comfortable place to take a break in the shade and I liked the angle of the concrete with the blockade.
