Schedule:

Block A (9:00-11:00 M/W/F)

Description:

Photography is a part of everybody’s life. You look at photographs all the time. Your school textbooks, the local newspaper, the Internet, and your Boy Scouts Handbook all have photos. Your parents probably took photographs to provide lasting memories of family milestones, vacations, holidays, and other special events. Beyond capturing family memories, photography offers a chance to be creative. Many photographers use photography to express their creative, using lighting, composition, depth, color, and content to make their photographs into more than snapshots. Good photographs tell us about a person, a news event, a product, a place, a scientific breakthrough, or a time in history. Imagine what the world would be like without photography. While working on Photography Merit Badge scouts will have an opportunity to get creative with their photos, learn about the different methods and techniques photographers use, and find out how they can improve their photos with little effort.
