Vandigicam is a local photography meet up group I’ve been involved with for over a year. We get together fairly regularly to take pictures, explore the city through photo walks, and meet new people. Please check us out our Flickr group, where all upcoming events are posted.
Tomorrow there is an event called the Vandigicam Photo Odyssey – a film photography based photo treasure hunt of sorts. The starting point is Wicked Cafe (Hemlock & 7th) between 11am and noon. A film camera is required and participants are welcome to take part individually or as a team. (These can be chosen by you ahead of time or the day of. Please make sure at least one member has a film camera to share.) One roll of 35mm slide film will be provided at the cost of $15, as well a list of ten words.
Everyone will then have FOUR to FIVE HOURS to take pictures interpreting each word on the list, working alone or as a team. The end point will be Soma Cafe (Main & Broadway) between 4 – 5pm, where everyone hands back their film to the organizer for processing.
On Tuesday June 27 @ 7pm (location TBA in the Vandigicam thread) the group will reassemble to view the results of the Odyssey. We will get together, return the processed film to each team and have a slideshow of everyone’s work. Much fun will ensue as we eat, drink, laugh, and vote to choose the winning team.
Cost is $15 per team to cover film and processing. Please post in this thread if you plan to attend so that we can keep a per team/person film count.
