Just thought I would put up a short little post to tell you about my photography projects for 2014. I have put little tabs up at the top of my blog page for each project so things will be kept together nicely (hopefully).
My first project is going to be a film project. I have collected a few film cameras over the last few months, and I thought it would be nice to try and use one each month for the year. I will be documenting my results on the blog – I just hope the cameras all work! All part of the fun though! The first camera I will be using does work – I have already tried it out – and it will be my Pentax P30n (you can have a look at my first results taken all the way back in September here). I am really hoping that I will be able to put up my results in the same month as the film was taken, but I suppose this might be dependent on the film developing speeds and all number of other things – I will try my best!
The second project will be a bit more haphazard I think. I am going to take a photo a day for the whole year. I was going to post these as soon as I had taken them, but I realised that some of these pictures might be taken with the film cameras and so I wouldn’t be able to. I think that this one might have a grand reveal in 2015 which is a bit odd to think of so soon after 2014 has started. I thought that it might be quite lovely to try and get a final image of 365 days worth of photographs (film, digital and phone). I really hope I can figure out a way to get this sorted out! I will keep you posted.
The third is a bit of fun and involves my phone camera the most I would imagine. I thought it would be really fun to try and take snapshots of found faces. This is a little bit hard to explain, but sometimes you see faces in things that aren’t faces, like light switches or the foam on the top of your coffee. I thought it would be fun to see how may I could find in a year. Wonder if I will come across any now that I have written it down, or whether they will all shy away from me!
So there are my extra plans for 2014. Has anyone else got any photography (or other) projects for the coming year?
