This isn’t a vanity project, far from it but I was thinking about how us, the photographer community are going to cope without being able to jump on planes and going wherever we want. Well let me walk that back a little, you can still do those things but you might feel uncomfortable doing so. I 100% fall into this category.
The general idea of Camera Caper is going on a road trip, one you have already decided on the rough route or maybe one you haven’t. Then letting lady luck decide where you go and what to photograph along the way. Challenges could range from something easy to find but you have to think creatively on how to shoot it, or the complex hard to find or reach places. Scores are totaled from the challenges completed (or not) and it;s fun to play in groups, teams or even alone. But I didn’t want to just create a photography challenge game, I wanted to make it a little educational too and accessible to everyone.
We can’t ignore the fact road trips will be the #1 method or type of vacation Americans will have in 2021. And, having something to keep the photographers among us happy while we travel across the country can only be a good thing. All avoiding the COVID hotbeds of airports, airplanes and having to sit in confined spaces with complete strangers. No thanks.
