100,000 Exposures
« on: September 05, 2006, 05:54:23 PM »
I'm about to buy either 100 disposable cameras (27 shots each) or 50 rolls of 36-shot film for my new Ukranian camera.

What should I do with them?

Film 6 years of my life?

Take a picture of what I see every 10 minutes for a week?

Film a short movie entirely with a disposable camera?

Take a picture of every single little item I own?

Since filming six years of your life has been done, I'd say take a picture every 10 minutes for a week or do the short movie.

Oh, everything's already been done. It's just a matter of putting my own spin on it. I may do the "every 10 minutes" idea. It's growing on me.

Maybe I could tie it to a statistic. Like, "Every 10 minutes, someone dies of starvation." and try to help raise money for a famine organization. I could do it next week, while I move apartments and we do the big site launch. That might be interesting. I'd also have to figure out how to do pictures every 10 minutes while I bike and swim. Running should be fine.

There'll be rules, of course. No locker rooms, bathrooms, or sleep. No pictures where it would be deemed inappropriate (meetings, movies, etc.)

So, let's see:

7 days (roughly 15 to 17 hours per day) = 112 hours = 6,720 minutes = 672 pictures.

That's about 24 rolls of film (27 exposures).

It seems doable. But god, every 10 minutes is going to take some dedication...

Also: 25 disposable cameras = $60

25 developings = $3.10 x 25 = $78
25 rolls digitized = 25 x $1 = $25

So $163 in total.

Maybe I should just find a cheap digital camera? But then I lose the texture and life of film.

Oh, what to do... What to do...

More top-of-the-head thinking: A clicking and winding camera would get *really* annoying to my officemates and such.

I can't use my current digital camera because it's to large to take running and biking. Plus, it's nice, and if anything happened to it, I'd be out a $300 super-zoom camera.

Maybe while I'm at work I could simply take a screenshot every 10 minutes? That would be really easy with Snapz Pro... That would save on film and developing, as well...

Hell, with a digital camera, I could do every ten minutes.  It's crazy to do it on film, so that's the way to go if you're the creatif type.

I know!  Take a picture of your face every time you jack off.

Maybe I'll do that...

Once, in my Freshman year of college, I wrote down every single thing I did for an entire week and the time I did each thing. It turned out to be kind of neat, but a little boring.

I'm going to sit on the idea for a little bit and see if something better doesn't pop up.
