A co-worker and I have been trying to be more creative outside of work and our current ambition is to take one roll of film a week. I think we both are realizing how statisfing it is to take a bunch of photos but how hard it also is to keep up with the challenge (i suppose that might be why it’s called a challenge though). We are both using what seem to be, and i mean this with no offense, ancient camera and i am disappointed to say i have no idea what the setting really do and nothing is to clearly labeled. It makes me feel like i’ve been babied with my slim point and shoot digital camera i’ve been using for years.

These are some of my favorites so far. We haven’t decided weather to allow photoshopping into the competition right now so that makes me cringe a bit but it will probably help me learn more.

Hit the jump for the rest.

the K/J challege

About 6 months ago two of my best friends left for 2 weeks for Vacation. While they were gone i had a key to their apartment and was going to check on their cat jiji, i kept joking with them that somehow i’d prank their apartment while they were gone but couldn’t figure out a great idea, so i decided to kind of steal one from a friend. We have a running joke with life is life, an epic music video and song and i used a photo of myself standing in an epic pose and put the lyrics “life is life” in the background. My original plan was to print one of these and just hide it somewhere in their apartment, but when i was printing through target online, i realized i got 10 free prints for signing up. That changed my prank to hiding 10 of the same photo of myself around their apartment. When i picked up the prints on the day my friends were returning, i realized it would be a lot funnier if i did a set of three, each with me holding the previous photo in it.

Hit the jump for the 2 other images and 1 that didn’t make the set but i thought was pretty epic none the less.

Life is Life

30 Seconds to Mars new album This is War (i think you are suppose to italicize titles) has around 2000 different covers. They had fans submit photos online and picked the best for their covers and then randomly released them across the world so it’s pretty much impossible to find a specific one. Searching for the best cover at best by I narrowed down the 6 or 7 covers down to two that i found worked the best. One was a cute girl and the other a guy that i felt fit the composition and seemed designed the best. I then realized that one of the two was a dollar more, it made my decision easier of which i wanted to get, but it did intrigue me which was the real price, the lower or higher. I flipped to the next cd and it was the lower price and i didn’t think much of it until i made a joke to my friend that the men are cheaper then the woman. Thinking i was being serious he checked out the other albums and actually discovered that in fact all the women albums were 1 dollar more expensive. Nice going best buy.

Hit the jump if you want to see a better photo of the album cover i bought.
