Photo Marathon Bassum … Bassum? Yes, Bassum!
Last weekend the original Bremen Photo Marathon took place in Bassum, a small village next to Bremen (about 35 km far from my hometown). In the first moment I was a bit sceptic about the rural place for a Photo Marathon. Are there enough motifs to give a photographic answer on the topics given by the organizer team? What about the distances between two checkpoints? How will the rural inhabitants act, when a horde of photographers enter their harmonic village and shoot all day around to get the best motif
Everything worked fine 😉
The most unpredictable factor of the day was the northern weather! It changed between bright sun, some rain drops and some dark clouds. Which eliminated one of my concepts I made in beforehand to give my photo series a conceptual frame: all photos under back light conditions. Most ours of the day, there was no direct sunlight, therefore no backlight scenario. Uuupps.
The other concept I thought about sitting on my sofa was the square format. This concept also was blown in the north wind by an e-mail of the organizational team about the photo format the participants had to use … 4:3 or 3:2. Ok, next idea please.
Anyway, the day was a cool ‘Landpartie’ with friendly and interested residents, I haven’t said so many ‘Moin, Moins’ like in Bassum during the six hours we drove around by bike to get the tasks solved.
You ask yourself where is Bassum? Take a look here, it is worth visiting:
Recommendation for lunchtime? Yes, for sure, visit the Restaurant Zum Mühlenteich. A bucolic place to eat next to plashy water.
What about the Photo Marathon Challenge? Underneath you can find the Motto and the six tasks:
And my photos? I will actualize this blog article after the series will officially published to not influence the Bassum Photo Marathon jury 😉
