Despite the quick change in weather Saturday morning, 4-H members gathered March 17 for the Fairgrounds Photo Shoot led by local photographer Linda Drish of Drish Photography. They focused on how types of light, position of light source, angle, and depth of field changes a photo. Drish reminded the young photographers that it might take 300 shots to get the perfect picture and not to get frustrated but to enjoy the process. She challenged them to know when to follow the photography ?rules? and when to follow their heart.
Drish with camera in hand led 15 4-H members out on the fairgrounds. The snow did not slow them down but added to the photo opportunities. Bows and Bullets 4-H member Noah Kleese brought in two ewes and their lambs for the photo shoot. Drish coordinated several other props and areas for them to practice. 4-H?ers were excited about the creative approach to their photos from the morning.
4-H allows youth to explore and develop their interests and skills in art with photography, paint, ceramics, woodworking, and more.
