View Full Version : Pass the Camera project - first photos in gallery

03-04-2005, 10:57
It took a few days but they're heeeere! I posted 4 (indeed, that's not 2 :) ) photos that I thought were worth posting.

I had quite some trouble shooting anything decent. I was not familiar with the camera, so much of my first roll was trial run. As the rules state that we can take about three days to shoot our shots, I had to rush. I felt rather under pressure and was unable to relax and see the opportunities. In the end I shot 2 rolls, and found only about 1-in-10 keepers (very poor score!). From those I selected the best (IMO) and posted them.

Check them out here: http://www.rangefinderforum.com/photopost/showgallery.php/cat/805

The project has really taken off now, guys and gals!

1 keeper out of 10 is not that bad, in fact. Remember, the big guys we all know about show us only their best - out of thousands of frames...

Darn, you got in front of me with your pics:) But i will transfer them NOW .

Wonderful pictures! You have set the bar very high for the rest of us in this project. I would quit my real job if I could get 1 out of 10 when I took photos :D GREAT stuff!

The travelling Canonet is now in Belgium. It allready has a roll of XP2 in it and tomorrow I'm taking it for a walk (if it's not raining cats and dogs). If all goes well it will go to Denmark on Thursday.

Nice pics. I look forward to watching the camera go 'round the world and the pics that result. A very cool idea that is being imitated at the classic camera forum at photo.net The more the merrier!

Finally, William Blanchard, the originator of the idea, sent his contact to me. HE'S IN! :cool:
So i've put him right on the list after wlewisiii, since they live in the same "neoghborhood" hehe
I have sent the new list around.
Wim (mac_wt), could you please print the new list and put it in the box instead of the old one, to avoid confusion? Thanks!!
