Remake / Photo Project

Adobe recently put forth a challenge to students in the UK with a cash prize of £10,000. The deadline is soon so if you want in on it you better work quick! Since so many of our readers live outside the UK I thought it might be fun to work with Adobe on our own project. They thought so too, so here it is!

The Booooooom + Adobe Remake photo project.

Booooooom x Adobe Remake Project


The idea of the project is to remake a famous work of art using photography. This photo by Sarah Hermans is a perfect example of what I’m after as it references Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” simply, and beautifully. Now I don’t have £10,000 to put up as prize money but I was able to get a copy of the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection ($899).

Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection Student Edition

RULES

1. This is a PHOTO project! I’m looking for photos only. This means no paintings, drawings, collages. The idea is to put all your creative energy into re-creating and re-staging the image. All the work here happens before you take the photo, rather than afterward. Please refrain from adding special effects and other things to your image on your computer.

2. Please reference classic works of art, I’m not looking for remakes of contemporary artwork, album covers, or fashion photography.

3. This isn’t a rule but if you want a bit of inspiration take a look at: Miranda July as movie extras.

HOW TO SUBMIT

1. Jump over to our FACEBOOK PAGE.

2. Upload a photo to our wall. A limit of 2 submissions please!

3. Where it says “say something about this photo…” write the name of the famous work of art you have remade, and copy/paste this link: http://booo.ms/r46XWc

how to do it

4. Hit the share button and you’re all done.

The best submissions will be posted in a gallery on Booooooom and one of you will walk away with the prize!

Deadline for submissions is October 21st 2011.

By submitting your work to the Booooooom Facebook group you are giving us permission to post them on our website and pass them along to other blogs and news outlets who want to post about the project!

    This is not film exclusively correct?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      doesn’t have to be film! just want an unedited image submitted!

      • http://www.madpaule.com Mad Paule’

        This is so Cool!!! ;)

    • Shannon Bagby

      I want to do one even though the deadline is past… Can I ? B and W?

  • toastrander

    Wonderful idea Jeff! Thanks so much

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      thank you!

  • Drew Bremer

    I just started film school and one of the requirements was Adobe CS5.5, but I couldn’t afford it because I also needed to get a camera… Then I logged on and saw this. If this isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      haha its a sign for sure!

  • Rathai

    Does it have to be an exact match of the original image, or can it be a different interpretation?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      it does NOT have to be an exact match! please be creative with it but the idea is that it would be easily recognizable what work of art you are remaking

  • http://mwestontaylor.com matthew taylor

    What about color correction?

  • http://gregdavenport.tumblr.com/ Greg

    Tom Hunter’s “Living in Hell & Other Stories” is an epic example of this, looking forward to giving it a go myself though!

  • http://marinamijatovic.tumblr.com/ Marina

    great idea….I can’t wate, but I have one question, when you say work of art…it is so big…does the chalenge have limitations, like does it have to be a asculpture or a painting, or could it be scnene forma movie or photography?

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      id like to steer clear of movies and keep it art masterpieces – so any paintings, sculptures, photos, etc..

      • http://marinamijatovic.tumblr.com/ Marina

        Thanks boss :)

      • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

        ha cheers!

  • veronica

    if we choose to customise the photo we upload so ‘only me’ can see it, will you be able to see it? i don’t want everyone to see the picture!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      you shouldnt really be submitting a photo that you dont want anyone to see!

  • veronica

    haha the problem is its my sister on a W.C.!

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      yesss!!!

  • juse

    What are the judging criteria? Is it about the best photo only, the best reinterpretation, the most interesting combination of original and remake, etc?

    (please don’t say all of the above.)

    It seems that the quality of the original might weigh heavily on the judging.

    • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ Jeff

      as with most of our projects i’ll choose a selection of what i feel is the strongest work and there will be a open vote so it will be the readers’ opinions

  • emma

    is it possible to submit by email if you don’t have a facebook account? (i know, so annoying haha)

  • http://whiteseahorse.blogspot.com Megan

    I have recreated about 12 portraits so may I submit all of them as a series? Here is the link to have a look at them http://meganmitchellphotography.blogspot.com/2011/07/blog-post_27.html

    I created a series of these entirely with film, but I did manipulate the film after the shot. The images were made in the darkroom without any photoshop or digital manipulation… but they are manipulated by hand. Would they qualify?
