Boat Ride, Rye Beach

My father (now nearly 94) was a freelance photographer in the 50s, 60s, and 70s in New York and New Jersey. The Museum of Modern Art in NY owns three of his photographs. The most famous of the three is "Boat Ride, Rye Beach" which, as far as we know, is the first published example of using sprocket holes in the final print. You can see from the number on the film, it was the end of the roll. 

You can read the entire story of the photo and watch my dad discuss the image at Lomography.

Assignment: This week creative Framers, we are going to bring homage to the photographers who came before us. Or to the photographers that we once were. We are not going all the way back to daguerreotypes or black and white film but to the 1980s and ’90s. That is right, to the time just before mobile phones and digital cameras came on the scene which allows us to take hundreds of frames of our sushi boat. Photos were often taken on a roll of film with 24 frames that had to be developed in a laboratory. Yes, a laboratory. So for this week’s challenge, you will only have 24 clicks to take your photo. Of anything you want. But take your time, plan carefully, think of your composition and shoot with care. If your only decent photo from the 24 frames has your model’s head cut off, then this is the photo that you are going to have to submit. You do not have the option of a re-shoot! Try and have a film photographer’s mindset this week. Don’t just grab your camera and start pointing and clicking one shot after another. Study your scene carefully, pay attention to the background, the direction and quality of the light and what message your photo will have. Take a deep breath, keep focusing on your photo and only then press the shutter gently. If you want to be even more authentic, DON’T LOOK AT YOUR CAMERA until after you’ve shot all 24. After all, you wouldn’t be able to see any of your photos until they were developed
