I have had an idea floating around my head for a while.

My idea is a challenge of sorts where you take a photo that was inspired by a song or movie.

What are your thoughts on this. It could be a way of geting the creative juices flowing.

The photos can be staged or something you see that reminds you of a song or movie title.

Sounds like a good idea, Heath. One concern is that, if you look for a recent thread regarding the music the members listen to, you can see that the interests of the members (that responded) are quite varied. Hence, one's picture may not be as widely understood.

Just think of the possibilites of Simon & Garfunkel's "Kodachrome"... :eek:

Gotta take a peek at that music thread.

i have read that kodak, in all their collective wisdom, sued simon for using the word kodachrome in that song.
maybe a shot of a lawyer throwing 'the book' at a singer?

Could get tricky with them Sgt Pepper songs. I have no idea how to get the psychedelic in my shots. In my head, yes, but in the shot...? :)

"Leap of Faith"


This doesn't count - it's not a rangefinder shot.

oh my friend, that is where you use cross-processing. :D

"My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Momma" - Frank Zappa.

I like the concept.

Hmm.. this sounds interesting - I would think that perhaps a snippet of the lyrics (if a song) or some sort of brief synopsis (if a movie) would be handy though to sort of explain the photo and how the photographer sees the movie or song within that photo.

Just a thought
