4-H Photography Workshop inspires determination and creativity

Mar 03, 2014
Photo by: Washington County 4-H Local photographer Linda Drish shared several examples with 4-H’ers. They looked for unique stories being told and how sometimes the way to select ‘the best’ is based on first instinct. Washington Go-Getters member Jenna Messer and her mother Julie were in the front row getting photography tips.

More than 20 4-H members and parents gathered Saturday morning, Feb. 22 for a photography workshop led by 4-H Photography Co-Superintendent Kathy Ebert and local photographer Linda Drish. They focused on how to recognize the light of a photo, the difference between a composed photo and non-composed and also how to make those pictures tell a story. 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 and to trust their gut as a photographer and artist.

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