I've decided to raise an idea for a campaign that has been rumbling around inside my head for a while.

I’m Proposing ‘’ Operation Camera ‘’ photographers/Film recorders were amongst the soldiers who fought and brought us the insights to what soldiers saw in their battles, during intense fire fights in the midst of battles or just general manoeuvres to the next checkpoint these caught the actions the heroics and the expressions of the those who fought in the wars. While studying these pics we can find great details of the battle(s) the unit(s) etc. bringing a new light on the battle or unit you may never have read before. The model/diorama etc doesn’t have to be a replica of the photo or film recording but the inspiration of your build and maybe include a bit of history regarding the unit and battle? To share with others who may have never read about that particular battle....

for about 12 months maybe?

what do you think?

I for one often time get my inspiration for a build from a photo as my artistic skills are somewhat lacking.

Back in June of 2010 Barkingdigger ran a similar campaign called Modeling a Photo
http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Campaigns&file=index&req=showcontent&id=414

I enjoyed it so much that I ran Modeling a Photo 2 in September 2012
http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Campaigns&file=index&req=showcontent&id=600

I am currently using a photo for the Battle Damage Campaign that had me thinking of maybe running Modeling a Photo 3 but my time for being a campaign leader is limited now. However I would gladly join in this type of a campaign.

Hi there. I like it! I am currently using this image:


As my inspiration to build this:


Is this what you have in mind for your campaign? if so, count me in and I'll find something fun--maybe CDR Stoddard's A-1 Toilet Bomber...

Sal my idea is just like both them campaigns. Iv not seen them before tbh. But i wanted to add bit of a difference by adding if we shared abit of info regarding the pic i.e the area/battle units etc sharing the history between us all while trying to model the photo.

Kristian just like that indeed for my campaign but hopfuly with a difference of some history being shared between us all.

This is my first ever campaign proposal so heres hoping ive worded it in a way to draw people in

I'm interested, but it seems that to tweak it up a notch and make the theme "camera" really stick, that the goal should be to try to replicate a photo as close to 100% as possible...as opposed to just using one as inspiration...

It may take a little time to get 10 onboard, but you can count me for sure.
