latest round of connect8 was played in september 2003.
participants were given a list of starting themes to take 1 photo
with, and from that take 7 more connecting shots, without telling
a story through their series.
choose 1 idea/theme below for your starting
photograph (but feel free to complete more ideas/themes
if you have the time)
of the day
from your chosen starting idea/theme, take 8 connecting
for example, i have started with 'walking in the
park' then 'city and park views', 'night
view', 'night entry shot' 'entry sign
against blue sky', 'transport into blue sky',
'red transport vehicle' and finally my 8th shot
of 'bright red heart'.
can see that each photograph relates to the last photograph,
but has taken on a new idea/theme aswell.
on wednesday october 1 2003, come back to the connect
8 website to post your link to your results! note that
complete entries submissions will be open for the whole
month of october.
each shot should relate to the previous shot in some way
e.g. colour, perspective, action, object.
shot should only relate back to the previous shot (and
not directly connect to any others)
this means there should be no 'storytelling' in your series
of 8. e.g. no certain colour, perspective, action or object
should run through all photos.
: plan your photographs by mapping out each shot.
write a short description or title of each shot if you
think it's necessary
is just a form of entertainment! no winners to be chosen,
no prizes to be handed out.
questions? email me at : projects AT sh1ft DOT org
