Vacuum sealed, for freshness!

What do you think the expire date date would be?

Hah! I think there might be liability issues for even posting this challenge up.

"Yes, yes, I know she died, but it wasn't intentional! You have to believe me, officer! See, there's this PHOTOGRAPHY site that gave us this CHALLENGE, and nobody warned me... it's not my fault!"

I'm trying to imagine how much luck I'd have asking YOU to get bagged for me, Johanna, since I'm sure you trust me... :-) You DID let me drive the red car, remember? Ah, those were the days of wine & roses!

Yeah, I'm still recovering from that :P

Wow.

No.

Not even any inkling of a yes.

No.

Never. Neither side of the camera.

Madness! I'd only consider that for someone I love and trust, and even then I'd ONLY do it with a very sharp knife/blade in my hand....... the hand that is right next to the plastic bag.

No
No
Never
01/13/2016 03:36:39 AM · #11
certainly, yes please

It might be fun to try something like this with a soft inanimate object, but people - NEVER! I wouldn't even risk it with a plant.

I don't know how he finds people who are prepared to model for him... unless they're really desperate for money.

you folks are so bizarre

The images are wonderful. The idea is interesting. But I'm getting older and more cynical. I would have loved this back in college but now I just think "what's the point of putting people through this?" I know, it gets a photographer "known" for something.

C'mon people, it's not really dangerous, only looks like it is, that's a part of the appeal. I am sure the models could tear up the plastic bag from inside if they wanted to, at any time. But it is fun, edgy, and thought-provoking. I like it. But I don't see the point of making a challenge out of it. Why replicate somebody else's idea?

Exactly. Although I'm not so sure they could break out that easily. We have some of those bags and they're pretty sturdy.

By the photographer's own admission, some of his models have panicked. Even if the situation isn't dangerous, for some people the stress could be.

Maybe a challenge titled "clever idea we haven't seen before" ?
01/14/2016 05:07:56 PM · #19
Maybe if the only subjects allowed were celery and radishes.
01/14/2016 05:29:39 PM · #20
I dunno. being in that bag would really suck ;-)
