Yellowhead 4-H Photo Leader Brent Hamblin says the club has really been enjoying the photo competitions they have been holding. He tells that the latest 4-H Photo Challenge – ‘H20’, was an especially fun one with some great effort and results by the club’s young 4-H members.
“Like almost any type of photography this latest challenge was easy to do at home while social distancing, and then just recently as a group to bounce ideas off each other,” said Hamblin.
He tells that the photography sessions are almost always more fun as a group effort. Especially when armed with some inexpensive equipment like a spray bottle, dish soap and straws, balloons, gum boots and mud puddles. In this way the members were able to add extra dimensions to their photographs, get their creative juices flowing, and have a whole lot of fun while doing so.
“Like the old saying, ‘if life gives you lemons – make lemonade’,” says Hamblin, “Our members are continually striving to find ways to make some ‘lemonade’ during COVID-19 through their 4-H photography. While not an easy thing to do, they have really come through and shown their creativity, spirit, and willpower. Kudos to them and their families.”
Here are the results of their recent Yellowhead 4-H Photography Club H2O Photo Challenge:
• First place Isabella MacDougall
• Second place was a tie between Amber McNeice and Tahlia Clarke
