"photography remixed" project #1shoot - rewind - shoot
Everyone in the group was given a roll of film. We made sure that everyone had something different - one 120mm color, one 35mm color, one 35mm black and white, and one 35mm redscale. In the next couple of weeks we will each shoot through our roll of film. When done, we will pass it to the next person to load into their camera to shoot the double exposure. (remember, you must make sure to take underexposed photos otherwise you may get a blurry white out. double exposures are never guaranteed!) It'll be interesting to see the double exposures that we come up with. Photos will be posted on this blog after our next ALC meeting.
