This year, I'm a part of a project where every image shot for the project is restricted to one camera, one lens. It's called WE35, and the goal of the project is both to help each participating photographer expand their creative eye, while also contributing to a global visual exploration of our world. Each month a field report is filed, aggregating everyone's images together to share.
This month, the goal was to shoot as though you had a single roll of film. 36 exposures. Build a contact sheet. No post-processing.
Did I say no post-processing?! You betcha.
My contact sheet is above, with just 35 exposures because sometimes you get shorted and that's how it goes.
This series of images was taken from a small photo walk around my original home town of Kingston, Tasmania. It was kind of wonderful to return to the town I was born in, with my camera, exploring it as though I was seeing it for the first time. It's such a small, quaint, peaceful little town, anchored by a beautiful beach. The shoreline has a pub, a couple of coffee shops and restaurants, and lots of bungalow style homes along the way.
It's a very different way of life here compared to living in a big city, and it's kind of amazing to experience.
If you have a chance, head on over to the WE35 page and check out the work going on there. We've got photographers from all around the US and all around the world shooting along with us, each of us with our own unique view of the world.
