A new Kickstarter called Buried Pixel is aiming to make location scouting much easier for photographers. It’s a gamification based system that uses a map and relies on the community to give tips about cool locations to shoot or to use for upcoming shoots.
Users upload images that they shot to the app to add contributions to the community. Using the map, members will be able to look at a photo shot in that location and read about how the image was created. EXIF data like the camera, lens, camera settings, lighting equipment, time of day, post production techniques and other BTS details will be shared by the most willing in the community.
The gamification process works similar to FourSquare–the location based app that let you check into a location and add tips until they ruined it by splitting it with Swarm for Check-ins. Instead, Buried Pixel will make you the mayor of a location, but instead call you the King or Grand Pooba.
If you’re a photographer that shoots weddings, portraits, travel or conceptual work it may be just the thing for you. Head on past the jump to check out their Kickstarter video.
