This year I organized another double-exposure challenge for The Negative Positives Film Photography Podcast. Using some of the lessons learned from last year, I decided to simplify the challenge, and give photographers deadlines. The concept of the double-exposure challenge: one photographer shoots a roll of film, rewinds the film, and then sends it to someone else, who then shoots on the same roll. Listeners of the podcast signed up via a Google form and filled out their preferences to shoot black & white or color 35mm film. Something new this year, hosts from other film photography podcasters were also challenged to participate.
My partner for the Double-Exposure Challenge was Ben Mills from Buckinghamshire in the United Kingdom. Ben runs an awesome website that connects photographers with film. If you have a stash of film that you’re not going to shoot, but want to trade it with someone that has something you’d use, Ben’s website can hook you up. Ben provided a roll of Fujifilm Acros 100 black & white film, and shot the roll around London. Me and Ben also decided to use the same camera body, hoping for a better chance to line up our double-exposed images. And it worked for the first half of the roll, but eventually drifted towards the end. The camera we both used was the Minolta X-700 (1983). These are some of my favorite images.

One again, I’ve organized a double-exposure challenge for the Negative Positives Podcast Film Photography Podcast.
What is the double-exposure challenge? Two photographers shoot and expose the same roll of film. How do you participate? Sign up in the Google form (link below) and we’ll match you with another photographer. This year you’ll have the choice to shoot 35mm color or black & white film. You get to chose if you want to be the first or second person to shoot the film, and you’ll select (if you’re the first shooter) if your willing to send the film to another photographer in another country.
The first person to shoot the roll of film:
1) Supplies the roll of film.
2) Shoots the entire roll of film.
3) Mails the finished roll to a matched partner.
The second person to shoot the roll of film:
1) Shoots the entire roll of film.
2) Develops the film or has it processed at a lab.
3) Scans the roll of film or has it scanned at a lab.
4) Shares the resulting images with his/her matched partner.
Plus, if you are a podcaster, you can participate in this challenge with another solo podcaster, or one of your podcast co-hosts.
Here are some important deadlines that you need to know:
April 1, 2019: Registration for the NPP 2nd Annual Double-Exposure Challenge begins.
April 17, 2019: Registration for the NPP 2nd Annual Double-Exposure Challenge ends.
April 22, 2019: Each participant will receive an email with an assigned double-exposure partner.
April 28, 2019: Submissions for Double-Exposure Contest begin.
May 31, 2019: Submission for the Double-Exposure Contest ends.
June 14, 2019: The 2nd Annual NPP Double-Exposure Challenge Zine available.
June/July: Mike and Andre will critique and judge images that have been submitted for the Double-Exposure Contest.
After you’ve been matched with another photographer (4/22/19), you’re encouraged to communicate with your assigned partner to share your visual ideas on your final images. For example: Are we going to shoot strictly in landscape or portrait orientation? Will one of us under-expose or over-expose the images? Will we concentrate on a specific subject? How concerned are we with lining up each frame?
The Negative Positives Double-Exposure Challenge was created to be a fun event for photographers that share the love of film and The Negative Positives Podcast.
Communicate, shoot, share, and have fun!
I’ve organized a double-exposure 35mm film challenge with Mike Gutterman of the Negative Positives Podcast Film Photography Podcast.
What is a double-exposure challenge? Two photographers shoot and expose the same roll of film. In this challenge, the first photographer will supply the roll of film, shoot the entire roll and pass it along to someone else they’ve been matched with. The second photographer shoots the entire roll, develops, scans the roll, and shares the results.
