There were many classes taught at Advance-O-Rama this year but none as popular as photography. Maybe I am a little biased since I taught the course. After making our way through a slideshow to talk about the basics of cameras, light, exposure and composition we made our way outside for a walk-about photo-shoot to put these principles into practice. I think this may have been the popular part of the course. We made our way back to the class room where I showed them a film camera and a polaroid camera. You would have thought we had cracked open an Mayan tomb. These kids were amazed at these obsolete tools of photography.

Congratulations to them all for earning their photography merit badge. I hope they use these new skills to submit stories and photos to
