Jesse vs. Lisa II

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

The long awaited Jesse vs. Lisa II is here! This time, instead of shooting digital, we went old school and shot using our film cameras armed with Kodak Tmax 3200 speed film. We love two properties of this film: the contrast and the film grain. C’est magnifique!

The rules: we had one week to expose one roll of 36 exposures. The assignment was to photograph the concept of light. Using the poll below, vote for your favorite photo or choose the photo that best represents the assignment. And leave a comment, we love hearing from you!

Jesse vs Lisa: A Shoot Out

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Always a little competitive, we decided to shoot it out and let you decide who is the better photographer. The Rules: For this competition, we purchased a stalk of stargazer lilies, with closed buds. We placed the lilies on our living room coffee table. The rules stated that once placed, neither photographer was allowed to touch, move or in any way disrupt the flowers, thus, creating a control subject for each of us to photograph. We each had our own time alone in the room to photograph the flowers every day from February 8 through the death of the plant on Febuary 20. Since it took so long for the flowers to die (and the fact that Lisa took 415 photos and Jesse took 287 photos) we decided to divy up the 12 days into Four Rounds to limit the number of photos you need to vote on. For your reference, we have uploaded a photo from Feb 8 (the day the contest started) and Feb 20 (the day the contest ended). Your task is to look at each photo in the posts below and vote in the comments section. A tie will not be allowed. One winner must prevail! The voting will close on Wednesday March 4 at midnight. On Thursday March 5, we will reveal the winner and tell you who took which photos.
