we need a photographic challenge!!

all this talk of gear is beginning to wear on me...

i was looking at the habana in 10 shots thread and thought maybe we need a challenge...like exploring a subject in 5 images.

...any subject, each photographer can choose his/her own...
...new images only, created for this challenge only...
...any camera, film, digital, albumen etc...
...b&w or colour...

what do you think?
anyone interested?
i'm thinking of a shorter time frame like maybe a month?

maybe we could beg the boss for a prize of some sort?

Great idea!

I'm off down the coast for a few days - I should be able to find something suitable.

Sounds like fun, even if I don't take anything good enough to submit. Thinking about and working on a project like this will be a good fun.

Ditto. Enjoyed the Postcard Part Deux, and shooting/picking a series of 5 is appealing.

this is about challenging ourselves and if there is a prize that is very secondary to the exercise.
don't worry about talent as this is meant to help us develop as photographers and that in itself is a noble goal.

for me, the less rules the better...we start now, any shot from this moment forward can be counted...we end on halloween...that gives us time to shoot, process, edit and post...where we post will be announced as i'm not sure yet, maybe a new flickr account?

good luck...have fun!

If I read it correctly, a mix of film and digital is OK, yes/no?

Just to clarify, it's a single image shot in 5 different views? I'm in.

..exploring a subject in 5 images...

to me, this means a single subject...be it a street scene or a person...and exploring that subject with 5 distinct images.

cool idea. i will give it a try. i never did a series or so till now, so it will be really a challenge for me.
although i'm a bit afraid i will end with 5 pictures of my cat

sry, for the stupid questions... just for clarification once more. so should the subject be one concrete object. so e.g. one single cat and not different cats summarized under the theme "cat".
and can the subject be an abstract term like e.g. peace, fear, anger,... too? or a widespread object like a river?
sry for complicating things...

hmmm... i hope we are not going to see you subject your "concrete object" to those conditions just so you can win a prize for documenting abuse to your pussy.
