Scav­enger hunts are a great way of de­vel­op­ing your pho­to­graphic skills. The re­stric­tions they place on you, in terms of time, tech­nique and sub­ject mat­ter, force you to think cre­atively, and im­prove your cam­era dex­ter­ity too. We opted to take a grand tour of the Cost­wolds, a beau­ti­ful re­gion that has a di­verse range of sub­jects to pho­to­graph. We made a list of shoot­ing chal­lenges, then selected them at ran­dom as we drove. The time limit we set our­selves was two days – a scav­enger hunt is a great ex­cuse to spend a week­end away with your Nikon – and we ended up burn­ing through 300 miles in our pur­suit of pictures. Over the next few pages you can see our re­sults, and on p28 you’ll find cut-out-and-keep cards that you can use to kick off your own scav­enger hunt!

day’s Pick at least five cards to cover a them shoot. Cut out the cards and put in a bag, pluck­ing them out at ran­dom. card at The idea is that you only draw one the next a time and you can’t move on to the chal­lenge be­fore you’ve com­pleted against cur­rent one. If you’re com­pet­ing s, you one or more other pho­tog­ra­pher chal­lenge can choose to take on the same at each at once or choose sep­a­rate ones ugh all lo­ca­tion. If you man­age to get thro earn our 21 cards in a week­end, then you ng! re­spect. Good luck, and happy shooti
