Photo contest

Purpose

Increase familiarity with the art of photography.

Description

Invite someone to teach the youth basic principles of photography, such as composition, lighting, and so on. Give each youth or team of youth a digital camera (ask them to bring their own, if possible). Assign them topics, and send them out to take photos that fit their topics. When they return, upload the photos to a computer so all the youth can see them. Consider awarding prizes in a variety of categories. (If digital cameras are not available, you could use film cameras and share the photos during a future Mutual activity after the film is developed.) This activity could be adapted to focus on a gospel theme in the youth’s photography.
