Despite cold temperatures and snow Saturday morning, almost 40 4-H members and parents gathered on Nov. 17 for the scheduled fall farm photo shoot photography workshop led by local photographer Linda Drish of Drish Photography.

The goal was to capture farm equipment during harvest season with livestock and fall foliage, however, the weather changed the agenda quickly. Instead, Drish was able to do lots of work inside with light and angles. They practiced with their own cameras with several fall still life and traveled outside to capture visiting equipment and sheep.

4-H allows youth to explore and develop their interests and skills in art with photography, paint, ceramics, woodworking, and more.
