It has been a while since the first 36 Frames challenge (check it out here) and since some has been asking me if I’d like to start another … I decided to do it again. This time … a completely new challenge! Game enough?

The idea for this challenge was inspired by a set of 3 photos I took some time ago using the Fisheye 2 camera and the colorsplash flash.

What we will be doing is to take 36 exposures of the same subject. Yes … the SAME SUBJECT. The challenge now is to make the same subject appear different in all the 36 exposures. Sounds easy? You can try painting it with different colors using your colorsplash flash, decorate the subject with 36 different items, make 36 different facial expressions … the possibilities are infinite. Fun enough?

The deadline for this new challenge is on the 31st August 2009. All you have to to after getting your roll developed and scanned … is to email me the 36 images (width of 600px on the longer side) when you are done. I’ll post more info about submission details later on.

Remember … the condition is to shoot all these 36 images in one single roll. Do not cheat! Hahaha! It’s already way easier than the first challenge where you have to follow the sequence of the 36 themes. In this new one … you just have to use your creativity instead.

You can use ANY film camera that you like.

Now … who’s game enough for this fun challenge?

To make things even more fun … 8storeytree has agreed to sponsor a mystery prize for the best set of photos submitted. I’ll arrange an independent set of judges for this … to make sure the winner won’t be the one who buys me beer. Hahaha! Anyway … as the organizer I won’t be eligible for this cool mystery prize and so is the sponsor and anyone who sleeps with us. Hmm… wait. That sounds wrong. Anyway … you boys and girls out here … quick load your cameras and start shooting! 😀

Come join the fun!
