Kids & Cameras

So today I was invited to speak to a local 4-H group about photography.
I was a little nervous about it because I don't like speaking to groups, and teenagers scare the crap out of me. Luckily there were only a few teens- who were very cool- while the rest of the kids were younger. I passed some of my books around and they asked me questions about composition and exposure and things like that.



The 2 Indiana Jones boys were killing me- so cute!



But now I know how my teachers always felt when I didn't pay attention to them!
HAHA!



After my talk, we turned the kids loose to go shoot some of their own pics.



It's so fun to see kids interested in photography... I actually had a great time!

Did you show them my photo shoot with popcorn? Just makes sense, 4-H, Iowa, corn and exposure!

Mom L said...

Uhhh, BHB, what did you expose with popcorn? Do I even want to know?!

Awesome, and yay you! That is really cool that you got to have that experience. I bet they loved it.
I remember a teacher friend once asked me to be guest speaker in his high school class. I ended up talking to a class of "At Risk - Inner City" teenagers about Cowboy Poetry. Awkward!

I am SO glad that your class went well. I knew you would be a hit. The kids look so excited in your pictures. When will you be starting your Online Photography for Dummies class for us?

Congratulations!
