The View from Behind the Camera

In the aftermath of the 2010 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon, several of the participants posted articles and photos from the event on their websites and on Flickr. You can see a full and growing list of posts and photos on our dedicated Marathoner’s Perspective page, but here is a small taste.

By the way… the piece of equipment I am so glad I dragged with me on Sunday? My reflector. I only used it for one shot… the very first but without it that shot would have been impossible to expose correctly. It’s always been my favourite investment, over any other lighting equipment it has saved my bacon numerous times.

If there’s one thing I can do well, it’s vague photos with the toy camera.

It started at 7:30am with a roll of film – it’s been a few years now since I last shot a roll! – and ended at 8:30pm with a Guinness. In between I interpreted 12 themes (1 theme was released every hour on the hour) and only 1 shot for each theme. I think I’ve got a few good ones, and a few that got caught in the rush of the day.

My body aches, I am tired as hell, my jacket is still drying, I think I chipped a nail, and I can’t find my Lens Cap for my Contax G1… Did I have fun?!? HECK YES!
