Cameras can be hard to use for people with limited mobility and people in wheelchairs. My design helps people more easily use and hold a camera so they can experience the fun and creativeness of photography with various photography parts that attach to a wheelchair. Attachable remote controls allow the user to adjust the camera settings and photography parts. The camera settings remote has all the camera settings on it, including an eye-tracker mode. The viewfinder stand has a screen on it that shows what the viewfinder on the camera sees. The Wheelchair Photography Set gives the user a hobby that they can feel proud of, which is important for having a positive and healthy mindset. In addition, users could see this as a job opportunity in photography.
