The Inspiration

"You’ve probably heard of the 10,000 hour rule, which was popularized by Malcolm Gladwell’s blockbuster book “Outliers.” As Gladwell tells it, the rule goes like this: it takes 10,000 hours of intensive practice to achieve mastery of complex skills and materials... " 

The Challenge 

Shoot one roll of film, everyday, for 365 days (one film stock/speed a week for 52 weeks); feature as many different film stocks as I can get my hands on; Learn at home film processing  and scanning; publish reviews monthly TBD (Youtube/Instagram/Blog).  

The Goal 

The challenge is inspired by my recent and ongoing transition from digital to film photography; I intend to transition from digital to film photography, for 90% of my work, before the end of 2022. Full disclosure: I will still use the digital process commercially, when needed.
