4-H Photography Camp

Photography is so much more than churning out a great picture. Through our 4-H photography camp, youth will learn to look a little closer and discover new ways of seeing things. By pondering subject, angle and story, members learn crucial decision making skills that help in all areas of life. Not only is photography an art of creative self-expression, it reaches into the world of science by incorporating math application, lighting necessity and building computer skills. Youth build self-esteem through creating and experiencing how others enjoy their work. Youth members will also explore how to use photography to express themselves and will end their sessions with photos they can print and take home digitally. CAMERAS will be provided unless a youth would like to bring their own.
