Chili Cookoff and Cruise-In Calamity – PhotoCamp – Video -Photos

When the assignment changes

Rain changed the assignment when it forced the chili cookoff inside and only two cars showed up for the cruise-in.

That didn’t mean I didn’t need to go. It meant that I had to change my ideas about what photos I might be able to get.

Accepting that there is no room for failure forces a photographer to look beyond the obvious and the expected to discover moments of clarity that can tell the assignment’s story. Even when the original assignment is not possible.

 

Chili Cookoff and Cruise-In canceled and moved indoors. At least the chili was moved indoors. The car show only had two cars whose owners braved the rain.
