First gathering since COVID-19 for 4-H photo club

By Tahlia Clarke and Tessa Salle

Yellowhead 4-H Junior Photography members

H20 makes up over half of our bodies and covers three-quarters of the planet. So it only makes sense that Mr. Hamblin assigned it to us as our current 4-H Photography challenge.

On June 7 our photography group had their first get together since COVID-19 started. We all gathered at the North Thompson Fall Fair grounds with our cameras and tripods to take some pictures of H2O.

Everyone paired up so there were two to three people in a group. We followed safety precautions, such as sanitizing each station after every group, washing our hands, trying our best to stay six feet apart, and some people also chose to wear masks.

During the outing we circulated through different water stations that provided great photo opportunities, and they had been set up for us by our photo leaders, Mr. Hamblin, Mrs. Salle and Ms. Cartwright- so thank you to them.

We went through seven stations. There was the water balloon throw – where we threw a water balloon at a black background and tried to take the picture when the water splashed. We did the fruit drop – where we dropped fruit into different glass objects. The lava lamp station, which was very fun as we mixed food colouring, denture cleanser, and water in a glass to make a lava lamp effect.

We did the flower and water station, where we took syringes and spray bottles to make a water drop and mist effect on the flowers. We did the bubble station where we had a straw, and bubbles that were in a glass. We took the straw and blew into the bubbles to make a bigger one. The milk station where we had a bowl that we put milk and food dye into. We also had straws to make another effect.

The last station that we did was the puddle jump. We put on rain boots, rain coats, and an umbrella to hold while we were in a puddle. We jumped in the puddle and got a bucket of water to go on to the umbrella.

During the stations we had some good laughs with the water balloons splashing, and the huge splashes from puddle jumping. We had fun and got some great photos. It was a very successful outing and it was great to see some of our friends and get out of the house.
