    Creative Photo Ideas for October: 06 Shoot a Geocaching treasure hunt

    Geocaching is a modern-day treasure hunt, where you track down a hidden container – a geocache – using co-ordinates and a GPS device.

    Don’t expect to be able to give up the day job on the proceeds, though: the only thing you’re likely to find at the end of the geocaching rainbow is a small Tupperware box containing a keyring or pencil sharpener and a piece of paper to sign.

    Why not start a photo project to record all the geocaching locations in your local patch? You’ll be surprised how many there are close to your home or workplace, and the variety of locations in which they’ll be hidden.

    You don’t need much in the way of kit, with everything from a DSLR and standard zoom to the camera on your phone providing good results.
